Many discerning buyers prefer two-door cabriolets because driving with the top down during the warm weather months remains a thrill. So we offer the new Porsche 911 Turbo S, the Jaguar F-Type and the Chevrolet Corvette. They all come equipped with simple, no-hassle, one-button convertible tops. But they possess dramatically different personalities. Not everybody wants to attract attention by driving topless, so some may prefer a two-door coupe that happens to be environmentally advanced. If that’s the case, the new BMW i8 is a stunner. None of these two-door vehicles has a great deal of room, however, so perhaps an elegant but incredibly powerful sedan might be the ticket. If so,consider the Audi RS-7. All five picks have robust 0-60 mph acceleration times. We continue to believe that there is a big difference between the cars that CEOs buy and the ones that sports and entertainment figures buy. CEOs are naturally performance oriented,but they don’t want the overly exotic Italian models or James Bond speedsters that are too expensive, require too much upkeep of their tires and brakes, and demand extra time to take them to a track. Even if you are buying a personal car,you want to feel that you are getting value for your dollars. Here are our top-five recommendations.
