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.

Alfa Romeo ‘916’ Spider

Alfa brought back its iconic Spider nameplate in 1995 with this dramatically styled, front-wheel drive offering that went on to enjoy a decade-long career. Effectively a roadster version of the same-era GTV coupe, the Spider was available with either four-cylinder Twin Spark or 3.0-litre (later 3.2) V6 power, each engine offering great performance and a superb soundtrack. It’s a charismatic car that’s as entertaining to drive as it is good to look at – and yet you needn’t pay a fortune for the privilege, with MoT’d Spiders available from £1500, while £4-5000 will buy an early low-mileage gem.

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.
