As we compiled Autobytel's 10 Best Convertibles to Buy in 2016, we learned an important point: While there are good droptops, and there are good performance cars, there are only so many vehicles that blend both characteristics without making sacrifices.
Most sports car enthusiasts live for speed, fun, and striking designs. Some drivers appreciate the focused performance and added chassis rigidity of a coupe design, while others love putting the top down and experiencing the sound of the engine and the wind in their face. For this latter group, however, we're happy to report that the world’s finest automakers produce folding hardtop and ragtop convertibles with plenty of hustle.
Open-top motoring fun isn’t just reserved for the wealthy, either. In this list of 10 Best Convertibles to Buy in 2016, there are great options for as little as $25,000. Read on to see our picks.
