Fiat 500 Cabriolet Coach Spied With Its Top Closed

We knew there was going to be a Fiat 500 Convertible » 9/10/08 10:20am 9/10/08 10:20am, but we didn’t realize Fiat was working on one of those full-length, Citroën 2CV-esque cloth sunroof things. The ahead-of-the-curve opinion-formers over at seem to think the car will receive the clunky Cabriolet Coach designation, but we’re not sure if all those…

Delahaye USA Recreating Famous Cabriolet

Our initial reaction to the idea of recreated Delahayes was one of reservation. How does one capture lightning in a bottle twice — and over fifty years after the original company went out of business?

Geneva Premiere: Audi Lets Fly the RS4 Cabriolet

Audi made good with its promise to extend its RS4 performance line into the heretofore untapped high-performance droptop market. Purists will lament the lack of a roof to keep the 420-hp V8 from twisting the frame into an Aunte Anne's pretzel, but the company says some particular beefing up has taken place within to… » 2/28/06 11:55am 2/28/06 11:55am

Car-chasing spies have caught what looks to be the upcoming European Ford Focus coupe cabrio, clad in a mild disguise for cold-weather testing.
