For sports car purists, the roof needs to come off. However, the benefits of having a quieter and leak-free cabin are not to be dismissed when it comes to selecting a sports car.

The minds at Hagerty quickly think of MG TDs or Lotus Sevens, which lack concessions for comfort such as wind up windows or a permanent roof. On the other end of the spectrum are sports cars like the Miata or mid-year Corvette, convertible tops or coupe models ensure the passengers are as comfortable as can be while still providing a driver-centric experience.
