These days, convertibles come in a variety of formats. In addition to the traditional folding cloth roof, there are sliding cloth roofs now and folding hardtops. One even has a folding hardtop with a sunroof built in. The same can be said for manual transmissions, there’s the traditional shift it yourself variety, and then there’s the new automated manual transmission offering the best of both worlds, the flexibility of manual gear selection, with the convenience of an automatic. Today’s best convertibles with manual transmissions are all about choice and driving pleasure.
