The best convertibles of every decade

Who has never dreamed of owning a convertible ? This type of vehicle with cabrio bodywork offers, in addition to the driving sensations that a conventional car already presents, a set of emotions that can only be achieved when driving on the open road. The sense of freedom you feel is incomparable. For this reason, we have decided to create this list, because even if you cannot drive them, you will be able to get an idea of what the best convertibles of each decade are like , from the beginning of the 20th century to the immediate present.

And it is that many do not imagine that this type of car without a roof was born at the end of the 19th century. In fact, its history is almost linked to that of the automobile . However, the first convertibles as such were manufactured as early as 1910, by the American brand Cadillac. Later, the other automotive brands of the moment also wanted to release their own convertibles, such as the Morgan Roadster, the Jaguar XK, the Alfa Romeo, Fiat, Ferrari, Citroën, and many more. From this moment, the competition in this field began.

A necessary evolution occurred at the end of the 20th century. Until then, convertibles had tiny trunks, limited seats, excessive noise – even at moderate speeds – and prices that were not very affordable for most pockets. However, from the 90s, innovations of all kinds began to be applied that made comfort add to the other qualities of these cars.

However, it is important to note that the fact that the first cars in history did not have a roof does not make them convertibles , since this term describes cars that have a folding top.

Either way, we don’t want to make you wait any longer. Here are twelve of the most beautiful and important convertible models of the last decades . Enjoy them!
