When someone says sports car, images of a nimble and performance-oriented two-seater pop into mind. The best way to elevate the already fun experience of a sports car is to remove the roof and make it a roadster.
From the Model A Ford to the Mazda Miata, nearly 130 years of automobile production has proven that the roadster is a body style with timeless appeal. Sometimes the design was just a removal of the roof from a couple model, other times the top feels like an afterthought and seemingly was never meant to be used—looking at you Sunbeam Alpine.
The top-down motoring experience is rumored to be best in the fall, enjoying the cool air rushing over one’s head with the heater turned on to even things out. Regardless of when you drive it, we want to hear about which roadster is the one for you—whether you own or just daydream about it. Tell us in the comments below what it is and why you love it.
