NEWS: Roofless: Drop Top Convertibles Developing Cadillac CTS Coupe Convertible

Cadillac hasn't offered a two-door convertible since the demise of the XLR in 2009, but Drop Top Customs may have a solution for those seeking a Caddy with a retractable roof. The aftermarket convertible firm tells us it'll have a prototype of a CTS Coupe convertible ready for a debut at the 2010 SEMA show.
DTC isn’t a stranger to either custom convertibles or the SEMA show itself. Founded nearly three decades ago, the company has converted all sorts of production hardtops into fully functional convertibles. DTC received plenty of attention at SEMA two years back, when it helped craft a convertible Challenger that won a design award from Chrysler itself.
Presently, DTC offers a convertible version of the four-door CTS, but for this year’s SEMA show, it’s working on crafting a ragtop CTS coupe. CEO Jeff Moran tells us he thinks the rakish roofline of the coupe will work much better as a drop top, and if the renderings hold true, we’d agree.
Moran says he expects to receive a stock CTS coupe “any day now,” and doesn’t expect the build process to take very long. If all goes according to plan, DTC expects to offer two-door CTS convertibles to customers starting this fall.
