In the past, four-seater convertibles were coupes with haircuts, famous for "cowl shake" (vibration in the steering column), other squeaks and rattles, and little space in the backseat. Now most have structural designs to stiffen the body and reduce vibration. Even better, many now come with retractable hardtops and room for four.

In this slide show, we rank five four-seater convertibles based on their cool factor, with five stars being the highest rating. With summer almost here, who knows, you might be tempted to head to the nearest dealership to see for yourself.
