There’s nothing better than driving down the open road with the wind blowing through your hair — whether you’re cruising through Florida or anywhere else in the U.S. Every automotive enthusiast should own a convertible car at least once in their life. And if you’re a connoisseur of classic and modern luxury cars, at least one of these models should be in your collection.
You won’t find another vintage convertible as iconic as the drop-top CadillacEldorado. Its long, rectangular form and leather bench seating are pure mid-century American luxury. The Eldorado was in production for multiple decades, so you can choose the generation that you prefer most.
Chevrolet Corvette Stingray
The Corvette Stingray outdoes every current sports performance car in style and reputation. You’ll get a truly exhilarating ride behind the wheel when you’re racing down the track in an open-air Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible. The latest convertible Corvette Stingray models have earned rave reviews for their uncompromising performance, so you know these machines aren’t just for show!
Another classic American luxury convertible that cemented its place in automotive history, the LincolnContinental convertible is a massive vehicle. Its low ride height and generous hip room are indicative of its origin as the creation of a yacht designer. You’re practically swimming in the Lincoln Continental! Frank Lloyd Wright to call it “the most beautiful car ever designed,” and it’s easy to see why. Post-war Mark II models were massively popular thanks to the Y-block V8 under the hood.
Audi TT Roadster
The Audi TT Roadster has been running laps since 1999 and has aged gracefully over the past two decades. Its streamlined profile and modern, elegant make up for the fact that it’s not the fastest nor the most powerful convertible on the market. It’s a chic option for drivers who don’t like oversized, ostentatious soft-top sports cars, and a convertible that’s better suited to luxury coupe fans than sports car fans.
Mazda MX-5 Miata
Arguably the most iconic roaster of the past 30 years, the Miata is a true joyriding gem. You’d think the MX-5 was an old Lotus or Fiat Spider looking at it, as the roadster embodies the elegant, compact designs of European two-seaters from decades earlier. The best way to experience the Miata is with the top down. New or used, it’s an affordable convertible for drivers who are young or young at heart.
It’s more affordable to own a used Porsche than you may realize — especially if you buy a pre-owned Boxster from the early 2000s. Or, you can opt for a brand-new 718 Boxster S with all the bells and whistles. Whichever version you choose, you’ll enjoy the peppy ride this mid-engine two-seater delivers. Its current fourth generation is powerful yet lightweight, making it a fast car with rapid throttle response and responsive steering.
The PontiacGTO convertible is a great choice if you prefer classic muscle cars over gaudy vintage sedans. This robust machine tore up the streets with its roaring V8 engine. Its curved, slung-back shape laid the foundation for competing models in the late 1960s and 1970s. The GTO is regarded as the first true muscle car ever made, and very few vintage muscle cars offered an open-top driving experience like this two-door Pontiac did.
