Hi I researched quite a few convertibles I am 6ft2" so I can't totally speak to your position(pardon the pun) but I hate the top of my head touching the ceiling of the car like it does in allot of models. Off the cuff I would say Jaguar especially older used ones possibly a four seater BMW but I really like the Saab 9 3. Finally believe it or not and you probably will not believe it try fitting in a now discontinued used Volkswagen Cabrio GLX. I find the seats really comfortable with a wide range on height adjust and seat slide back it may work for you. The car is not a sports car but it has a peppy engine in a light weight and safe car some girls really seem to like the cute factor of the car and for me it has a nice German drive feel. Plus for the price of a used Cabrio you will have enough left over to put gas in the car even at 200.00 a barrel. Oh and to help out with that the car gets pretty good mpg's
Hope this helps!

I am 6'4" and headroom in most convertibles was/is a real issue for me. I fit very comfortably in a Volvo C70. We love our 2007 C70!

MINI Cooper S. I'm 6'6" with a 36" inseam. I fit VERY comfortably in my MINI cooper S. Mine is a coupe as opposed to the convertible but they both have lots of headroom and legroom. The handling and road feel is exceptional. It may not be a total rocket but it's pretty zippy, especially when you want to accelerate from 15-30, 30-50, etc. Merging and passing are a breeze.

A reporter is looking to hear from new car buyers who considered buying a convertible within the last year but opted for something else.
