Convertibles are not as beautiful as they used to be. :(

Cabrios / convertibles with back seats are so tacky/chavtastic... or only good for standing up in, eg this rather fine Benz:

Of course for ultimate style you want this rather fine Seat.

At least neither of these have a hunchback!

If someone threw me the keys to a 992 cabriolet, I’d be happy to pick them up; you can’t see the hump from the driver’s seat😉

Ditto!
I don’t mind the hump, as I know what lives there

Agree, my 1954 TF used to generate a lot of admiration wherever I parked it..

I quite like the cabriolet. I have been driving convertibles (2CV, Z3, 986, 718) for the past 20 years and always love the roof off. I saw the video yesterday and I quite like it.
