Is it feasible to cut a corvette style targa roof in my 2nd gen Probe GT?

I have a 1993 Probe GT that I want to cut a Corvette style targa into. I want the roof over the front seats to be 100% gone not like t-tops. The panel doesn't need to be reinstallable since i plan to make a vinyl panel to fit in its place. Any tips hints or suggestions are appreciated.

i wouldn't reccommend using t tops or a targa style top. both options would weaken the unibody considerably, making the car literally twist in curves. it would also be extremely dangerous in accidents. in theory, it may be possible to strengthen the doors, quarter panels underside unibody, window frames, and several other places in the car to the point where you could use a targa style top, but it would add so much weight to the car that it would be horrible on gas and pretty slow, to boot. this would also take a great deal of engineering skill. also, to be perfectly frank, the finished result probably would not look very good.
