Here are the top 20 Porsche convertibles of all time for your consideration.
20. 2016 Porsche Boxster
The 2016 Boxter is one of the all-time favorite luxury sports cars in the convertible class. The model turned 20 years old in 2016, and this makes for a very special year. Although the Boxter ran on six cylinders, power was not an issue. Drivers love the Boxter’s aggressive handling along with outstanding performance and quick acceleration. The 2016 Boxster convertible is the 20th best Porsche convertible of all time.
19. 2017 Porsche 718 Boxter
The 718 was a model that was released in 2017, along with the 718S, which was a replacement for the Boxter. This was the less powerful of the two, yet the 718 received a larger engine than the six-cylinder that powers the Boxster. This model offered 300 horsepower on a mid-engine platform with all the power you’d need in a street legal convertible. It worked well for an intercooled turbo and the 380 lb-ft of torque gives it punch. This model is reasonably priced at $ 57,000.
18. 2017 Porsche 718 S
This is the convertible model released in 2017, which was created to replace the Boxster. News of its launch spurred a frantic race to be among the first to claim ownership.

17. 2018 Porsche Targa 4
The Targa 4 is a model that is in the 911 class and although some preferred the Boxter, we had to move it up the list. The deciding factor that brought this luxury convertible a little higher is the fact that we love the 3.0-liter engine that makes the vehicle 370 horsepower and 331 pound-feet of torque. This car accelerated quickly and maintained speed with ease. The roof panel is innovative and, although a little smaller, it is made of fabric and electrically retracts to facilitate the movement from top to bottom.

This was a fun car to drive with the top down in 2017, and it still is today, as the 16th best Porsche convertible of all time.
15. 2018 Cabriolet Carrera S
The Carrera S Cabriolet 3.0-liter engine offered 182 horsepower, which was modified to offer enough power for a fun ride. 368 pound-feet of torque gave this luxury sports convertible the ability to take off fast when a quick increase in speed was needed.

The Carrer 4S Cabriolet was rated slightly higher than the S model. Its convenience was also marked with a price tag that cost about $ 7 more than the Carrera S Cabriolet model.

The Targa 4S rivaled the Carrera 4S Cabriolet with the same engine setup that gave 420 horsepower to the 3.0-liter engine with ample torque of 368 pound-feet of torque. It’s a spirited model that easily keeps up with Porsche’s 14th best convertible, but there are some Porsche fans who prefer the Targa 4S aesthetic and like the fact that the roll bar was no longer needed on the Targa model.
