Summer's almost here, and it's time to put the top down. Here are 13 of our favorite droptops for warm-weather days.
The 2 Series is one of our favorite modern BMWs thanks to its perfect size and great handling.
BMW offers the 2 Series Convertible in both 230i and M240i models.
The 2 Series' relatively low cost of entry makes it one of the more affordable BMW models.
Odds are, you don't have an extra $200,000 laying around. But if you do, we highly recommend spending it all on the McLaren 570S Spider.
Performance specs are identical to that of the hardtop 570S. Go on, take your top off!
What better way to hear that awesome turbocharged V8 than with the top down?
The Audi R8 is an incredibly civilized mid-engine supercar, and it's a real peach in Spyder form.
The R8 is pretty, easy to drive quickly, and with Quattro all-wheel drive, great for four-season climates.
We always picture convertible ownership like this, don't you?
Purists may balk at the idea of a roofless 911, but trust us, it's a fine way to experience Germany's premier sports car.
Porsche sells 911 Cabriolets in everything from base Carrera to rip-snorting Turbo S guise. There's something for everyone.
Yes, the Porsche 718 Boxster is also a real honey. But what's more iconic than a 911?
Don't want to go for the full-bore R8? Try Audi's tamer, cheaper S5 Cabriolet.
With a turbocharged V6 engine, the S5 is a heck of a good time. Quattro all-wheel drive is standard here, too.
Audi sells a droptop A5 as well, but we can't resist the more engaging S5. One of our favorite coupes is just as lovely without a roof.
The answer is always Miata! And for good reason -- this is one of the best-handling, most affordable convertibles you can buy today.
Light weight, rear-wheel drive and outstanding dynamics make this one of the best driver's cars on the road right now.
Don't want the soft-top experience? The MX-5 RF has a power retractable hardtop, and doesn't ruin the blissful Miata experience one bit.
To our eyes, the Jaguar F-Type is one of the best-looking droptops out there.
With 4-, 6- and 8-cylinder engines available -- including an SVR model with 575 horsepower -- there's a convertible F-Type for all sorts of enthusiasts.
Oh, and did we mention the sound? You'll be hammering the throttle all day long thanks to the incredible noise from this topless Jag.
The Mercedes-AMG GT C Roadster has a V8 engine note that would make Odin start looking for testosterone supplements at the Valhalla GNC.
With its long hood and short deck, the AMG GT is one of the prettiest sports cars to debut in years, and none of that is lost in Roadster guise.
Rear-wheel drive and V8 power. Yeah, we love it.
Mercedes' AMG GT Roadster not for you? How about the ultra-luxurious, super-plush S-Class Cabriolet?
The base S560 Cabriolet is a real honey, but AMG S63 and V12-powered AMG S65 versions offer a lot more bang (for a lot more buck).
The S-Class Cabriolet is one of the most tech-rich droptops around.
Yes, it's a Jeep SUV. But with its soft-top design or removable hard-top roof panels, the Wrangler is as much a convertible as anything else.
Name another convertible you'd feel comfortable driving through a river.
Heck, the Wrangler is a convertible you can drive through a river with its doors off.
So like, you could buy a house, but why not have a Rolls-Royce Dawn instead?
This is one of the most opulent, comfortable and lovely-to-drive convertibles out there.
If you have the means, then by all means. The Rolls-Royce Dawn is an incredible piece of droptop work.
How could we resist putting America's Pony Car on the list? The Mustang is one of the most iconic droptops on US roads.
What says summer more than a Mustang Convertible on the beach?
Don't actually drive your Mustang Convertible onto the beach, of course. Not without the right tires, anyway.
Wildcard: How about Land Rover's topless Evoque?
Yes, it's weird. But like the Wrangler, it's one of the only convertible SUVs you can buy. And this thing will off-road just like any other Evoque, too.
See? Look how much fun you could be having with your Evoque Convertible at the beach!
