Land Rover is no stranger to the topless utility vehicles. In fact, it was one of the originators, and still offers the Defender as an open-air prospect. But that's a hard-core off-roader. The Evoque, in this and many other ways, charts new territory for the brand.

Rumor has it that the British purveyor of sport-utes is planning a convertible version of the Evoque that will more closely mirror the Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet and the rumored upcoming Audi Q5 cabrio. The drop-top version would in all likelihood be based on the three-door model as opposed to the five (like the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited), but aside from the roof configuration, it would likely mirror the hardtop model in every other way.

Could this be the Victoria Beckham special edition that's been touted? That would certainly kill any lingering prospect of men buying the convertible crossover. One way or another, we'll have to wait and see, and for that matter if the rumors will come to fruition at all. But if anyone has the cheek to pull it off, it's Land Rover.

      Could this be the Victoria Beckham special edition that's been touted? No. That one will be the Evoque with the pronounced frown added to the front end

        Since the Evoque is a very attractive car, turns out she's not that talentless then. Though I wouldn't go to one of her concerts.

          At any rate, she is attractive, and would be more attractive if she learned to smile.

        I think the utility is equivalent to an X6 M's, and the reasoning behind it too.

        LOL. And don't forget it is a Range Rover. It will most likely have issues.

      And then Porsche will make a vert Cayenne, BMW will have a vert X6, and Ferrari will make an SUV and then make a vert version too, cuz ya know, ya gotta cater to the market! Does all this sound stupid? Yeah, so does a vert Land Rover (Defenders being an obvious exception).

      I absolutely LOVE this vehicle and plan to own one in the future. Not necessarily in a convertible form though, haha! I remember seeing the LRX concept back in 2008 and praying it'd make production. Then that damn 4 door version came out. You people and your damn families... :-X

      It would be nice to see convertible SUVs again. I had a K5 Blazer that you could take the top off and it was probably the most fun vehicle I've ever owned.

      There's been a 1st generation Freelander convertible and despite the bad construction and lots of plastic, it was kinda cool. I'll wait to see how Land Rover will create a convertible Evoque, but hopefully it's something completely diferente from the Murano. Maybe something along the lines of the Fiat 500C with the big cloth roof.

      Now most of you will think I am retarded, but the Evoque is pretty sexy, just saying
