If you have driven a convertible at least once in your lifetime, you would know that the complete absence of practicality is easily compensated by pure fun of open top driving, that cannot be replicated by any other vehicle.
So, for all of us fans of visceral emotions on the road, in this episode I will be presenting the all-new lineup of convertible cars and speedsters that are scheduled to arrive within 2020 and 2021 model years.

Bentley Mulliner Bacalar: bentleymotors.com/en/models/mulliner/coachbuilt/bentley-bacalar.html
If you are seeking yet another level of exclusivity, their coachbuilding Mulliner division would definitely satisfy this craving. The Bentley Mulliner Bacalar is based on the latest generation Continental GT Convertible, but draws design inspiration from the EXP100GT Concept.
Lexus LC500 Convertible: lexus.com/future/LC-Convertible/
Unveiled in its concept form in Detroit in early 2019, the 2021 Lexus LC Convertible has finally debuted in its production guise and is going on sale across the globe in summer 2020. The drop-top shares its underpinnings with the LC coupe, but gets a retuned suspension and slightly more rigid chassis setup.
Jaguar F-Type Convertible: media.jaguar.com/en-us/news/2019/12/new-jaguar-f-type

VW T Roc Cabriolet: volkswagen-newsroom.com/en/t-roc-cabriolet-5225
After the Beetle’s discontinuation, the unlikely candidate to take the spot of VW’s only convertible becomes the subcompact crossover. The T-Roc is not shooting for the sporty performance, substituting it with style.
Ferrari F8 Spider: corporate.ferrari.com/en/ferrari-f8-spider-evolution-species
2020 Ferrari F8 Spider is a drop-top version of the F8 Tributo coupe that gets the same powertrain setup and despite being 150 pounds heavier, makes a 0-60 mph run in under three seconds and has the same 211-mph top speed.

The exposed roadster Aston Martin V12 Speedster draws inspiration from the 2013 CC100 Speedster concept and is powered by the already familiar 700-hp 5.2-liter twin turbo V-12.
Aston Martin Vantage Roadster: astonmartin.com/en-us/models/new-vantage
2021 Aston Martin Vantage Roadster gains an electronically-operated soft-top roof, that opens in 6.7 seconds and scores the title of the fastest operating convertible roof on any modern car.

Morgan Plus Four: morgan-motor.com/plus-four
Forget convertible Porsches, Ferraris and Jaguars of 2020, the undisputed leader in head turning is the upcoming Morgan Plus Four roadster. Despite the familiar design, the newcomer recycles only 3% of the components from the outgoing model.
