Top down motoring is a joy. The standard glass wind deflector does a brilliant job of eliminating wind buffeting in the cabin - there's just no buffeting in the cabin at up to expressway speeds, which means hair dos should be kept in place after a long drive.

Taking the roof off a car usually means softer handling and compromised dynamics but the 370Z Roadster is one of those rare ones, which retains the fixed roof model's dynamic characteristics. It commands a $16k premium over the coupe but the Roadster adds an extra (open roof) dimension to the Z motoring experience. Topless motoring around the $200k price tag don't come more fun than the 370Z Roadster - a Boxster might feel more special but it isn't as fast and yet is significantly more expensive.
