Did I miss something? I am completely unaware of any convertible versions of the DTS or Chrysler 300.
In another vein, a convertible which seats four or five isn't all that useful. I've owned both and no one every wanted to ride in back.
I'm interested in the BMW One series convertible because I prefer the folding top to the expensive, complicated and top heavy retractable H/T on the larger 3 series.

Good point on the back seat. My oldest daughter would ride in the back of my old Sebring and be fine but the second one wanted nothing to do with it. She was fine up front.
That said, if I'm getting another convertible anytime soon (I'm having this very debate with myself right now) I'd likely have the back seat just because of the number of family members.
Rag top, please.

The car companies don't always make the cars some people want because there isn't enough volume to make a profit. Hence, the need for aftermarket companies. There Cadillac DTS and Chrysler 300 convertibles available with ample rear seat room and soon there will be the Cadillac CTS four door convertible as aftermarket. Searches on the web for "four door convertible or four/five passenger convertible will bring you to the aftermarket companies.

Cool. Will check that out.
Meanwhile, I have pulled the trigger on my ragtop - a 99 Toyota Celica. Very nice. Just big enough. I'd have liked a five speed but given the paucity of Celica convertibles avail able I figure I can live with the automatic. Sweet car. Ebay special.
