Few automotive experiences are more invigorating than piloting a fast Convertible on an open road on a temperate day. OK, whom are we kidding? It's great fun—regardless of the day! Fast, open cars exist primarily to appeal to those who love the feeling of being one with nature. After all, there’s nothing like feeling the wind rushing around you, experiencing the many and varied fragrances of everything you pass (OK, we agree, that one really could go either way), and the general charge you get from the overall experience. Whether you prefer two seats or four, there’s a pretty broad slate of cars qualifying among the fastest convertibles under $50,000. Whether you prefer to drive pure sports cars, grand touring models, or even open coupes, you’re bound to find the ride with the perfect blend of attributes to suit your needs and fulfill your desires here.
