    Alrighty, since this is the mods section of the site, I would like to propose a lambo-style vertical-door-mod be considered. The company at verticaldoors.com does various custom vertical door kits, and I wonder if the design of the Roadster would prevent or encourage the construction of vertical door kits...?

    Any thoughts?

    yeah with all of the electronics bilut into the door, it would be really diffucult. Not just a matter of makeing a new door, but somehow remaking the existing door with the new capability, I'm sure with enough moeny it would be possible, but certainly not practical.

    There's a company here in Texas selling remanufactured De Lorean DMC-12s. Check it. . .

    http://www.delorean.com/

    They start at $42,000. It would make a cool electric car, but the performance would be hinded by its weight.

    I'd hate to see someone try gull wings on a rag top.

    That would kinda destroy the open top concept!
