I would have loved to have a Smart roadster come to the US. I think it would make the Smart brand more appealing, just my opinion.

I think those concepts by Smart would be big sellers if they were produced. (just my opinion).
Sorry but even if they had the cars to sell..... it would be a disaster with the marketing team the mother ship has for smart. Take a look at Fiat. Same kind of thing with a expanded car line. Started with the 2 door 500 added a 4 door (didn't sell) added a suv (didn't sell) added a roadster (didn't sell). On top of that FCA actually had a small advertising budget. Plus imho a much better car to sell in the USA.
