There’s nothing like a warm summer day, the sun beaming down and the beach beckoning, to make you regret not buying that luxury convertible you dreamed of all winter long. Except an early spring day when temps shoot up or a fall day that begs you to bask in the sun one last time.

But convertibles can seem so inconvenient. Not suited for cold or messy weather. Dark interiors that make you fry when the sun is hot. Seating for not so many people, and space for so few things. Skimpy insulation that seems to let the road noise dominate the cabin.

If those are your pushbacks, think again. Convertibles have completely evolved; not only are mainstream drop-tops much more capable for daily driving, but luxury models are even more trophy-worthy. Isn’t it time you started acting on that dream rather than just dreaming it?
