Hardtop convertible

Does anyone know if Ford plans to create a "hardtop" convertible for the mustang? Idon't know the logistics of doing something like this, but it would be so nice to have the hardtop.

Is this what you're looking for?

Smooth Line: Hardtop: Mustang 2005 - Present

A few years ago I remember seeing pictures of a prototype for '09(?) that had a hard panel retractable top. It was butt ugly with the top up. Glad Ford didn't follow through.

More mods than are readily apparent and that my wife knows about

Actually it is a "drop down" hard top I was looking for. Look at 40 seconds into video. Thanks for the reply.

The hard tops also weigh more, require heavier motors, and often take up a lot of trunk space. When I bought the 'Stang I was also looking at a slightly used BMW 335i hardtop convertible. Wanted a 135 but the dealer didn't have any and was ready to give me a good price. Anyway I was completely turned off. You could not store much if anything in the trunk if the top was down.
