Peugeot RCZ – Click above for high-res image gallery

If you were enamored of the new Peugeot RCZ when it finally debuted in production guise at the Frankfurt show last month, the latest product of the French rumor mill has got more in store for you. According to emerging reports from across the pond, Peugeot is planning to compliment the svelte coupe with a convertible counterpart.

Because the existing 308 on which the RCZ is based already offers a four-seat hard-top cabriolet in its range, sources anticipate that the drop-top RCZ will feature a lighter and more compact conventional cloth roof that will take the place of the rear seats, giving Peugeot its first proper roadster in years. Alternative reports, however, suggest that the French automaker could go a different route with a removable carbon-fiber roof panel to give the RCZ a targa-esque option. In any event, Peugeot isn't expected to return to the North American market any time soon, so we'll just have to suffice with the superior engineering of the Audi TT whose styling the RCZ apes.

      Ignoring the car for a sec (not hard to do, it's doing a good job blending into the hardly contrasting background), the woman looks like she has incredibly long arms.

      Now back to the car, I love roadsters. The Miata, Boxster, S2000, MR2 Spyder, there's something about roadsters. And the RCZ is nice looking, but they already have the 207 CC. But then again, if it takes a few years to get the RCZ out, it will be in time to replace the 207 CC when it is time for a redesign.

      How come no one hardly complains about the "smile" Peugeots have?

      this is frankly pointless speculation...the RCZ is just a coupe version of the 308, of which there is ALREADY A CONVERTIBLE, the 308CC.
