Best Convertibles for Road Trips 2023


If you’re planning a road trip, you won’t have to worry whether inclement weather or extreme temps will force you to rent a regular coupe or sedan with the excellent choices available from Falcon Car Rental for an exotic convertible rental in Miami. Each is able to provide both hardtop insulation and roof-free driving fun.

Pure Sports Car: Porsche 911 Carrera 4S Cabriolet Rental Los Angeles/Miami

Today’s lineup of Porsche 911s includes Carreras suited for daily driving, Turbo trims that approach 9-second ¼-mile times, and track-ready GT3s, but if you’re looking for a Porsche rental in Los Angeles, the one to spring for is the 911 Carrera 4S Cabriolet. 

The “Carrera” name harkens back to Porsche’s dominance in the Carrera Panamericana races of the 1950s. As for “4S,” the number 4 indicates the vehicle’s all-wheel drive (AWD), while the S refers to its power boost over the standard Carrera (443 hp vs. 380). “Cabriolet,” of course, refers to its convertible top.

The car can sprint to 60 mph in an astounding 3.6 seconds, and since all 4 wheels are driven, acceleration is smooth and drama-free, and excellent grip is delivered even in slippery conditions. Still, despite it being the most appropriate of the vehicles on our list for enthusiastic driving styles, the 911 Carrera 4S still has all the creature comforts you could want. 

Supportive, highly adjustable seats, a responsive infotainment screen with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, voice command functions, an incredible sound system, and plenty of USB ports for cell phone charging are all standard in the 4S. Do keep in mind, though, that its rear seats are best suited for children or short adults, and even then, they may be somewhat cramped.

If you would prefer more of a luxury car rental in Miami with sports car attributes, consider our next option:

Grand Tourer Extraordinaire: Mercedes AMG SL55 Rental in Los Angeles

After a several-year hiatus, the Mercedes SL line returned in 2022, having undergone a radical transformation. No longer the “fast in a straight line” vessel they once were, SLs are now smaller and angrier, gaining AWD and rear seats for the first time, with 4-wheel steering tightening their turning radius. 

These new SLs keep the luxury features, too. Fabric tops do an excellent job of cutting out wind noise while still allowing for the most amount of cargo space, and when down, the Airscarf feature will blow warm air on occupants’ necks, perfect for open-roof driving, even on a cold night.

The SL55’s seats are comfy yet supportive, and its controls are easy to operate yet weighted well for serious drivers. The 11.9-inch infotainment screen and 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster are sharp, crisp, and configurable, and you can use Apple CarPlay or Android Auto to control the fantastic Burmester stereo. 

Perhaps the best part of the new SL line, though, is its powertrains. If you’re looking for a Mercedes rental in Los Angeles, you will be more than satisfied with an SL55, given its explosive acceleration that offers a 3.6-second 0 to 60 time. 

Overall, the SL55 truly does offer an amazing combination of the amenities of both sports cars and luxury vehicles, but for the ultimate luxury convertible rental in Miami, consider what’s up next.

Comfort and Brute Power: Bentley Continental GTC Rental in LA or Miami

With the 2003 Continental GT, Bentley created an instant classic. Its 552 hp twin-turbo W12 engine could push the ride to nearly 200 mph while still spoiling drivers and passengers alike with supreme comfort.

Once it was clear that Bentley’s superb creation would be a sales hit, the model line gained a four-door version called the Flying Spur, then a convertible version called the GTC. Bentley also added a new V8 engine to the lineup that, despite having 10 fewer horses than the original W12 produced, was easily capable of propelling a GTC to 60 mph in a fleeting 3.4 seconds.

Today, inside a GTC, there isn’t a whiff of plastic. Every surface is made of leather, wood, or metal, and even the rear seats, which are generally an afterthought in 2-door sports convertibles, are luxurious and divinely relaxing. They’re still smaller than the rear seats in a sedan and are optimized for children and small adults, but those who fit will be quite happy.

Features like a giant 12.3-inch touchscreen and Android Auto/Apple CarPlay are expected, but Bentley nestles occupants in peak luxury. Ventilated seats, heated armrests, neck warmer, adjustable cushion length, and massage features ensure you will never want to leave your Bentley rental in Miami.
