Mazda MX-5 Miata

For a weekend in Miami Beach, look no further than the MX5. The Mazda Miata has been one of the best-selling convertibles in history, and for good reason. They are agile, elegant and above all, they have all the panache of a convertible without breaking the bank. The MX5 is a modern car with the styling of a classic ’60s convertible, whether you’re looking for a classic NA Miata, the original or a modern example. Find a pristine turn-of-the-millennium MX-5 and you’re likely to find a huge bargain too.

Porsche 911 Carrera Convertible

Going to the Hamptons for the weekend? The Porsche 911 was practically built to provide drivers with an exhilarating ride on twisty back roads. Few cars have been nearly unchanged in design for 50 years; the 911 is one of them because of its classic, almost Bond-era luxury styling and unparalleled handling, courtesy of a rear engine. Nowadays, despite their disappointing styling at the time, 911s from the 996 era (1997-2006) are rising in value but can still be had at reasonable prices.

Ford Mustang Ecoboost

It’s hard to imagine a more iconic American convertible than this one. The Mustang was the OG pony car, the one that started it all. The 2022 GT has the style and performance of a muscle car, with a rare four-seat option. Mustang’s supercharged Shelby upgrade makes it the perfect convertible for a summer road trip to Daytona. Base convertible models come with an efficient and very powerful 310 horsepower, 350 lb-ft EcoBoost engine, but cost just $33,0000.

Also consider: Chevrolet Camaro, BMW Z4
