Everything about the Porsche 911 Turbo S Cabriolet is excessive: its power, speed, agility and, with the top down, its headroom, too. It’s the German way, after all. Known around the globe as one of the fastest and best-performing supercars, the new-generation 911 Turbo features an even faster top speed and acceleration. It’s truly a masterpiece of modern engineering, and drivers can enjoy it all with the soft cabriolet top neatly folded into its hunch. porsche.com

Ferrari 812 GTS

An Italian V-12, rear-wheel drive and convertible top: life simply doesn’t get any better. The all-new Ferrari 812 GTS is that and then some, representing Maranello’s first front-engine, V-12-powered convertible since the 1969 Daytona Spyder. Epitomized in Hollywood films of yore, oftentimes cruising the Italian countryside with Tinseltown’s hottest playboys at the wheel and most seductive dames as companions, this 789-horsepower grand tourer is designed to solidify the belief that, in Italy, everything is sweeter—but especially the cars. ferrari.com
