Enjoy the Summer … and the Road Ahead

For many drivers, the convertible is the ultimate way to take in the joy of driving, as well as the summer sun. Roadsters are convertibles that do not have rear seats. Less practical than their four-seater cousins, roadsters are more focused on performance. They vary in size, price, and performance – but are all about the drive.

No matter your budget, there is a roadster for you. Some roadsters, like the Mercedes-Benz SL, have a retractable power hardtop in place of traditional soft tops, providing additional protection from the elements. Some of these roadsters are exceptionally well-equipped, while vehicles like the Alfa Romeo 4C Spider are truly stripped-down to the bare driving essentials. We’ve ranked most mainstream roadsters on the market according to their performance in our U.S. News Best Cars rankings. Cars that are not ranked on our site are listed as honorable mentions at the end of the article.

Read on to learn about these extremely fun-to-drive cars, including their performance and price. Some of the price tags on these vehicles are astonishing, but many are special enough to match it.
