Three Fastest Sports Car Convertibles In Comparison

Thursday, 20. July 2023 | Benedikt Lüchinger

What is better than a thoroughbred sports car with an insanely powerful engine, sublime performance, intoxicating engine sound, and gorgeous design? The answer is easy – the same one but in a convertible version! Losing the top makes a car arguably better since it offers the driver one more dimension in the driving experience.

Losing the top makes a car arguably better since it offers the driver one more dimension in the driving experience. Having a wind in your hair and the sun shining down, mixing with the road noise and engine sounds, makes driving a sports car an unforgettable moment. But, amongst so many fantastic machines, which one should you choose? There are over a dozen top-notch sports cars that could be had in open-top form, and today, we compiled the best three. Here they are.

Porsche 911 Turbo S Convertible

Interestingly, Porsche was very reluctant to make the 911 Convertible, and the first one came in 1983. Since then, the open-top 911 has proven itself as one of the most popular versions of this everlasting sports car. Today, almost 40 years later, the Porsche 911 Turbo S Convertible represents the pinnacle of the 911 range and their most accomplished model. The sun-loving Porsche fans have more than few options when it comes to convertible cars in the lineup; however, the vehicle everybody lusts after is the Turbo S Convertible.

It perfectly combines the timeless 911 lines, brutal firepower of the Turbo S model, quality and luxury, and joy of driving with your top down.

We know that Turbo S Convertible is iconic, prestigious, and well-designed but what makes it fast? Well, great question, and let’s start with a 3.7-liter, flat-six engine enhanced with two turbochargers engineered to deliver 640 Nm and gigantic 800 Nm of torque. The Turbo S has a standard all-wheel-drive system and is equipped with Porsche’s eponymous PDK 8-speed, dual-clutch automatic transmission. The result is 0 to 100 km/h time of just 2.4 seconds and a top speed of 330 km/h! But the numbers cannot tell the whole story and the 911 Turbo S Convertible is much more than just a ballistic missile on four wheels. This car can be docile and maneuverable as a compact hatchback in city driving and then turn into a wild animal if you want to. But where it excels is being a GT cruiser which can reward you with incredible driving feeling each time you take the top down and hit the gas pedal.

Aston Martin DBS Superleggera Volante

The current Aston Martin DBS is one of the cars one can sit and look for for hours, soaking every design detail and admiring the overall appearance. But, apart from being drop-dead gorgeous, the DBS Superleggera Volante is also devastatingly quick, with composed handling, excellent level of interior comfort and refinement, and most of all, without a roof, which puts it firmly into our selection of best sports car convertibles currently on the market.

Contrary to 911 Turbo S, which is a rear-engine machine, DBS is a front-engine with twin-turbo V12 pushed towards the center of the car as possible. This makes DBS a longer but also more comfortable vehicle with a bigger wheelbase. In order to make it handle as neutral as possible, Aston’s engineers placed the 8-speed automatic gearbox at the rear axle, creating an ideal weight distribution. However, the biggest star is that glorious 5.2-liter V12 engine with 715 hp and 900 Nm of torque. Not that long ago, such power was only reserved for Formula One cars or Le Mans prototypes, but thanks to the relentless quest for speed and performance, we can now have it on the street, wrapped in one of the most beautiful designs Aston Martin has ever produced.

As you can expect, the performance figures are equally impressive, and DBS Superleggera Volante can sprint to 100 km/h in 3.6 seconds and top 340 km/h, which makes it one of the fastest convertibles ever built. However, despite supercar numbers, DBS Superleggera Volante is a GT convertible with perfect road manners and the ability to be soft and comfortable like a luxury sedan. The level of interior comfort is second to none, and craftsmanship is impeccable.

Ferrari F8 Tributo Spider

No list of best sports cars would be complete without at least one model from Ferrari. It might sound like a cliché, but Ferrari’s lineup, heritage, engineering expertise, performance, and allure firmly position it as a true pinnacle of the sports car world. This time we chose the Ferrari F8 Tributo Spider, a proper open top that is designed to deliver you the ultimate driving experience and mimic the Formula One car, which you can legally use on the street. Out of all three, the F8 Spider is the most hardcore, not just in engine power and sheer stats but also in delivery, feel, and driving dynamics.

Tightly packed behind the driver is the 3,9-liter, twin-turbo V8 with 710 hp and 760 Nm of torque. The power is sent to rear wheels over a specially-designed 7-speed dual-clutch automatic, which has lightning-fast shifts. With 2.8 seconds to 100 km/h, it is slightly slower than the Porsche, but sheer drama, noise, and acceleration make it more dramatic. The top speed is identical to DBS Superleggera Volante at 340 km/h.

However, contrary to other cars, which are well-mannered cruisers that can sprint when they need to, Ferrari is a race car tamed for the street. It offers the same level of comfort and luxury appointments but a slightly harsher ride and less interior space, which is understandable. But, for those brave enough to try to tame it, it will reward them with the time of their life.
