Luxury convertibles are the preferred ride of summer, but it can seem difficult to score one for less than $50,000. These seven models fit the bill in both high style and serious auto performance.
1. 2014 BMW Z4 sDrive 28i ($47,950)
There is a great deal of numbers to digest in the name of this gorgeous car, but it’s much better to admire the Z4 style, as anyone on the street would. The sDrive 28i comes with a 2.0-liter inline 4-cylinder engine that produces 240 horsepower at 5,000 rpm. The previous year brought an auto-dimming interior and extra mirrors to the Z4 28i , which features auto climate control and key-less entry among its many luxury features. Considering the base price, it will be a challenge to keep this model under $50K.
