Since 1996, Chrysler has offered a convertible version of its Sebring and 200. As this seems very unlikely to change, it's safe to assume that a new 200 Convertible is in the works following the unveiling of the radically redesigned sedan. What it will look like, though, remains an open question.

Traditionally, the only major styling differences between the Sebring/200 Convertible and the sedan were found above the beltline. It's likely a 2016 200 Convertible would follow a similar philosophy, especially considering the dashing good looks of the redesigned sedan.

Artist Theophilus Chin has a similar idea, as shown in a pair of renderings he's released. Using a few of the stock photos from the 200 Sedan's reveal, Chin has given us our first glimpse of what a 200 Convertible could looks like. It's sharp, retaining the good looks of the sedan. The windshield looks like it's been swept back further, and obviously, there are a pair of doors missing. Other than that, it's the same attractive car that debuted at Detroit.

What do you think? Would this make a good 200 Convertible? Let us know in Comments.

      ~300hp AWD convertible that seats 4 and won't break the bank? Yes please!

      I can't imagine that this wouldn't make it to production given that Chrysler has consistently offered a midsized FWD convertible since the 1980's K-car Chrysler Lebaron. As someone else has mentioned, there's also virtually no competition. The 200 convertible would have the $20k-$30k FWD convertible market almost completely to itself.

      This is one good looking car. In this interpretation, the headlights seem to blend better with the soft top. Too bad they are not calling it Sebring anymore.

      I've never liked Chrysler's, but I've got to admit that they've really stepped up their game and begun to impress as of late. I'm not looking to buy a car, but this is gorgeous. I hope they make it!

      All this pre supposes that a convertible version is coming. As an owner of a 97 Sebring that I enjoy I hope they do make a new one, but with convertible sales dropping I am NOT holding my breath. The platform would likely require a lot of investment to beef up to be structurally sound with the top removal, and a top mechanism costs money. I sure hope they do, but ?

      The rear end could be sexier, more Italian. The sedan is a home run. And Chrysler needs this convertible not only for the car rental companies, but as an affordable alternative to the Mustang/Camaro genre. Volvo discontinued the C70, a true four seater with a hard top that was a real looker. The Chrysler 200 can be the new American convertible for adults.

      This Chrysler 200 rendering looks nicer than the Audi A5 Cabriolet.

      I'm affiliated with Chyrsler, but if you thought the Cherokee's sales success was a shock, you ain't seen nothing yet. This 200 is going to light the midsize segment on fire.
        Jesus!

        Yeah im sure it will be neck and neck with the Fusion.... Unfortunately it has one thing against it...that Chrysler badge. So many people have swore them off its going to take a miracle to get people back.

      The front end is very dull and bland. I like the scalloped crease on the sides of the body, but other than that, this design is going to blend into the scenery.

      Can't believe I'm saying this, but wow. This is a Chrysler product I would actually want. If they would keep AWD as an option, I'd take it in a heartbeat. Need another AWD convertible out there. Right now, Audi and Murano CrossCab are the only two in a similar price range.

        Yeah. I like this a lot. Quite a surprise considering how unattractive the 200 has been since it bowed.

        AWD convertible? Do you have actual money that you will actually spend on that, or are you just a kid?

      Real issues. How heavy and wide will the doors be. Will the back seat and truck be functional. How will they stiffen the body and if you have to ask why, click to another page. Finally how will the roof be fabricated for wind etc. Lot's of real questions that in the end are more important than a render. I should have also added how the price point will be affected and can't help but wonder if this is the best platform for a new convertible.

        I'm sure all of those questions, plus over a thousand more are asked and answered by Chrysler engineers and accountants. Would be nice to see id they make it.

          We love the Chrysler product.  We had the LeBaron, and 3 Sebrings; in fact, our 2004 convertible is the best ever.  It is time for a change even though our 2004 is wonderful and we took out the extended warrantee which is up early 2015.  Now I hear the bad news that they are not making a 2015 convertible.  I want to stay with this product but need to make a change before the end of the year so I can sell it with a warrantee.  ????????????????  bucko3200@aol.com
