Convertible truck? Someone would want it. It looks kinda cool, but I am not sure who the archetype of customer would be that this would be targeted towards.

On a technical term it seems be more of a targa top than convertible.

Good point. It does seems to be more of a Targa top than convertible. I think it'll be an option geared towards a niche crowd.

That's if it will ever happen which its more than likely not to, reason why we haven't seen one yet.

I think the issue is that it combines two things that don't really go well together. Convertibles are for pleasure cruising. They are not meant to be practical. Pickup beds are exactly the opposite. Not for pleasure. They are practical. Doesn't really make sense to combine them.

And that's why it will always remain a one off and never what meets a production process with models you can buy through a local dealer.

I can't think of any truck convertibles that have gone to production. I remember the Murano convertible. That was terrible.

I can't either and don't think anything ever has also doubt there ever will.

The closest there might be is a truck with a panoramic roof but i don't know what the chances of that is.

The most we'll probably ever get on trucks is a sun roof. Panoramic roofs take up too much space that can be used for roof racks and carrying things on said racks.

Unless a panoramic roof can be done in such a way that it wont be an issue, and with the positive repsonse i've been seeing of pano roofs, that's bound to be something we'll see more of in the future.
