Top 10: Two-seater soft-tops of the 1990s

Although Mazda reinvented the two-seater sports car at the end of the 1980s with the original MX-5, other manufacturers were keen to join this rejuvenated market sector the following decade – with stylish, fun-to-drive creations attracting a new generation of buyers.

Porsche Boxster

Launched in 1996 and remaining in production for eight years, the 986-series Boxster brought Porsche sports car ownership to a wider audience. It was powered by an ex-911 horizontally-opposed six-cylinder engine, mid-mounted to ensure more predictable handling. The end result was a ‘proper’ Porsche with real driver appeal and impressive performance, reinforced further once the 3.2-litre Boxster S took a bow in 2000 – a model that ended up with a mighty 250bhp, a top speed of 160mph-plus and a 0-60 sprint time of less than six seconds. Prices of early Boxsters now start at well under £4000.

I love my BMW Z3 2.8 - its brilliant fun to drive - handles well, has excellent acceleration, loves curves and country roads. OK the soft top is prone to leaking if it pours with rain, but a bit of tape soon puts a stop to that. In another 10 years I may be to ancient to get in and out of it cos it is so low to the ground - but meanwhile it makes me smile and very happy.
