The Mercedes-Benz SL has always carried the torch for the luxury-convertible market.
It's seen some competition from the BMW 6-Series, which is offered in both coupe and convertible models, as well as a high-performance M6 edition to take on Mercedes' AMG models.
For true sports car performance, the Porsche 911 is available with coupe or convertible body styles, rear- and all-wheel-drive, and several levels of power and handling.
The Maserati GranTurismo and Aston Martin Vantage are the beauties of the group, attractive when in motion and parked.
The Maserati also has a usable back seat, and there's legitimate power in both cars–especially in the top-shelf V12 Vantage.
