When you're subject to the vagaries of a typical UK summer, you might reasonably wonder why anyone would ever be interested in a convertible version of any car, least of all one as competent as the new 370Z. Why suffer all the extra expense and worse performance of the open-topped model, when all you're going to gain is a wet crotch and a footwell full of hail?
Well, here's the shocker. If the UK ever sees one more day of sunshine, and you don't live in criminal central, the 370Z Roadster is better and more fun than the coupe. Unlikely as that sounds, particularly when the coupe is so proficient, it's one of just three convertible cars I can think of now that doesn't penalise you for choosing a moveable roof over a tin top. The Porsche Boxster is one; the Bugatti Veyron Roadster is two; and the 370Z Roadster is number three.
