2013 Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet Long-Term Road Test Posts: 9,975

  • :) That's my favorite time to drop the top too.
  • and all is right again in the world......
    this morning 38 degrees in New England, top down, heat on, still good
  • I'm amazed and the number of people that DON'T put their tops down. I have a Miata and have it down unless its below 50 or raining, but I can't believe the number of people I see in convertibles in absolutely perfect 75 degree weather with the tops up. I guess I understand if you have a mustang as maybe the convertible option was pretty cheap, but for a car like the Miata - its sole purpose in life is to be driving with the top down. Its a perfect car that way. With the top up, its just a tightly fitting small call.
  • I think many of the people driving convertibles with the top up in perfect weather are probably kinda like the people who go out and buy a pet right after they see a movie starring that kind of animal. They make an impulsive emotional decision, then 3 days later realize they don't actually like the outside.
  • I've got a different conundrum. I've got a Boxster S, but I've also got a CBR600RR. I like driving top-down, but if it's nice enough for that it's nice enough to take the bike. So I drive the Boxster top-down that rare sliver of times when it's nice out but I need trunk space.
