Of course, you could argue that the convertible came before the car as we know it. In 1888, when Berta Benz took her husband’s motorwagen for the first cross-country automobile trip to visit her mother 60 miles away in Pforzheim, she didn’t have a rood over her head. The first horseless carriages were just that – luxuries such as a windscreen and a roof only came later. (I’m still wondering how electric cars will look when they evolve away from vehicles needing a big lump of engine in the front or back.)
So enjoy the infographic. Lists are to be argued about, so would you have chosen these vehicles at your top 60? What has been missed out? Which one would you choose? I’d have the Cord 810/12 Phaeton, or the Porsche 356…or maybe the XK120. Don't make me choose.
