For the price difference you pay for the 2013 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S Cabriolet over the coupe, you could buy a new Nissan Versa. For the price difference between the base-model Carrera 4S Cabriolet and a fully loaded one, you could buy a 2013 Chevrolet Camaro 1LT — with a droptop.

Starting at $118,480 and topping out at $147,175 (including a $950 destination charge), it's a safe assumption that either you can afford it or that your long-term investment strategy is still finding its way. In either case, what you'll find is that the all-wheel-drive Carrera 4S Cabriolet offers a rare balance between the performance aspects of a luxury sports car and the touring experience of a convertible

The Carrera 4S cabrio's 3.8-liter six-cylinder engine is mated to a seven-speed manual transmission, generating 400 horsepower and 325 pounds-feet of torque for a zero-to-60 time of 4.5 seconds. Exterior styling changes for 2013 include wider rear wheels and rear fenders, a light strip connecting the rear taillights and a revised front grille. Abundant safety, comfort and tech features come standard, and racing yellow paint and a black roof are no-cost options. Flourishes like a black leather interior, sport exhaust and black wheels will cost you thousands, however.
