Much like Editor-in-Chief John Neff, convertibles aren't really my factor. Oh sure, I really like having an excellent droptop for per weeks time every now and then, but I just can't see myself ever plunking down the money to own one.
But whereas Neff points out particular places of bargain as the big purpose for not having a cabrio, my discussion can be found mostly with style. Basically put, I can't think of only one sports convertible available on the industry that doesn't somehow look a little bit more intense than its vehicle kin. Exclusions can be created for droptop-only designs like the BMW Z4, Mercedes-Benz SLK and the charming Mazda MX-5 Miata, but again, there are no devoted hardtop variations of those vehicles to evaluate them to. And when you're dealing with a form as legendary and precision-cut as the porsche 911, lopping the ceiling off just doesn't do it for me.
So while I would never buy this Cabriolet over the wonderful vehicle, there's still a lot to really like about the wind-in-your-hair 911 experience. And as I discovered over the course of per weeks time, there's a whole lot of compliment to be given to the Porsche's platform powertrain, as well.
