Now that the Evoque Convertible is not going to happen, shouldn't this forum be consigned to history or at least moved?

The mods don't have the power to "re-arrange" the actual sections of the forum, only Martin can do that

RE: Old Forum

Perhaps LR have woken up to how much competition there is queueing up for a bite of the pie, maybe the task of engineering the roof while preserving the roofline and some luggage space was too much, maybe the financials didn't stack up.

In the end though, what probably killed it was anyone driving it would look like a real prat, pure and simple.

RE: Old Forum

Then you need to contact the dealer your deposit is with. IIRC the cancelation was announced a couple of weeks ago when the RRS New York launch was held.

Spend it on an F Type Jag instead, or a used Boxter.
