The Volkswagen Sport Coupe Concept GTE has lost its roof in a digital interpretation of a cabriolet version by Theophilus Chin.

This is merely a styling exercise as Volkswagen has already announced they are not planning a successor for the slow-selling Eos. Even if they did, it wouldn't be based on the Sport Coupe Concept GTE as that one is much larger (4869mm long) than outgoing Eos (4422mm long).

The Eos will be retired sometime this month or in June as Volkswagen has stopped taking orders for the hard-top convertible in late March. The Eos will be one of the several models getting the axe as VW's technical boss Heinz-Jakob Neusser declared a few months ago that other cars will be eliminated as a response after being criticized of having an overcrowded lineup.
