Top 10 10 cars we wish were convertibles

10 cars we wish were convertibles

Purists do not like convertibles. Too heavy or not rigid enough, they see convertible vehicles as being designed for those who want to impress their neighbors. All this changes the first time they find themselves on a country road, their hair in the wind and the sun in their face.

There’s nothing like driving a convertible. So, buy your Porsche Cayman GT4 for track days, and get a 911 convertible as your daily-driver. You’ll thank us later.

There are plenty of convertibles on the market right now, but you can never really have enough. It is with this idea in mind that we thought of the following models that we would like to see as drop tops. We would gladly trade the Range Rover Evoque convertible for any one of them…

Subaru BRZ/Toyota 86

Imagine such a light and dynamic car in a convertible version with a manual transmission. Maybe we would need to up the power a bit, but a convertible Subaru BRZ or Toyota 86 would be a formidable rival to the Mazda MX-5.

Dodge Challenger

The Camaro and the Mustang have convertible versions, so why not the Dodge Challenger? A convertible version could breathe new life into Dodge’s muscle car as well. They better not forget the Hellcat version either…

Lexus RC

Lexus has no convertible in its lineup. The Lexus RC is the ideal candidate to rectify the situation. C’mon Lexus, make a convertible Lexus RC F and then let us drive it.

Jeep Renegade

There are already too many convertible SUVs on the market, but a roofless Renegade would be relevant given the adventurous personality of Jeep’s small utility vehicle.

Tesla Model S

The Tesla Model S has not really changed since 2013. But anything Tesla does is ok, and a convertible Tesla Model S P100d would certainly be a sight to drive.

Honda Civic

The Honda Civic sells like hot cakes. A cabriolet version would be unique in its segment and they would probably sell every unit they build. Or not… but we like the idea.

Cadillac ATS-V

The Cadillac ATS-V convertible would be a strong rival to the Mercedes-AMG C 63 S and BMW M4 which are both offered as drop tops.

Nissan Leaf

Yes, another electric car. A Nissan Leaf convertible would be more accessible than a Tesla Model S while being more versatile than a smart electric.

Acura NSX

The NSX is not perfect, but it is beautiful. Exotic cars sell very well as convertibles version and the first-generation NSX offered a version with retractable roof – a targa, but still.

Audi RS3

Of all the cars on this list, an Audi RS3 convertible is the one most likely to see the light of day. Imagine the sound of its five-cylinder engine when there is no roof to camouflage it…
