The Rolls-Royce Dawn Is DeadMack Hogan

One of the largest, most opulent convertibles ever made is going out of production. The Rolls-Royce Dawn is dead.

The four-seat drop-top was already discontinued in our market. U.S. deliveries wrapped up back in 2022, with 2021 as the last model year. It concluded a six-year run for the Dawn, which was released in 2015 for the 2016 model year.

Now, Dawn production for the rest of the world has ended. The Dawn is built on the architecture that underpinned the previous-generation Ghost, so it's not really a surprise to see it fading out. Rolls-Royce's newest platform is a leap forward, serving as the foundation of the new Phantom, Cullinan, and Ghost. The company hasn't confirmed whether an all-new convertible will be offered, but it wouldn't be too surprising. From the Phantom Drophead Coupe to the Dawn, the company has a knack for making the most refined convertibles in the business.


The Dawn was also a sales success. Rolls-Royce says it was the best-selling drop-top in the company's history. If Rolls-Royce does choose to make a new convertible, it'll be electric. Besides a refresh for the Phantom and the Ghost, all new Rolls-Royces will be EVs. A convertible version of the all-electric Spectre seems almost too obvious, but time will tell.
