You’d probably be surprised to know that at the beginning of auto manufacturing, ALL cars were convertibles – starting with the Ford Quadricycle, first produced in 1896.  The earliest motorized vehicles didn’t have roofs, windshields, doors – or even side glass.

It would be nearly 10 years before Henry Leland, who later founded both the Cadillac and Lincoln lines, produced the 1905 Osceola Coupe Concept Car – the first to have hardtop.

Since that time, the convertible has gone through extreme highs and lows over the last century – prominent on the roads of America through the 1950s and nearly disappearing during in 1970s.

Fortunately, convertibles made a comeback – and with enhanced technology that helped them advance from simple cloth tops to the self-folding roofs of today.

According to U.S. News, the most popular convertibles on the road now include the Ford Mustang, the Mazda MX-5 Miata, the Nissan 370Z, the MINI Cooper, the Volkswagen Eos, and the Volkswagen Beetle. The ranking also takes safety, interior features, performance, reliability and auto reviews into account in developing its list of top convertibles in America.
