I wonder if people are more likely to buy convertible versions of cheaper cars or more expensive ones. I am thinking the more expensive ones.

Supra looks great as a convertible, but I just question how much weight that will add and how that will affect performance.

you don't have to wonder. Every convertible since ever suffers from torsion and bulk. You don't have a roof so you've now lost an integral element of structural rigidity. Bulk comes in the form of the top (folding hards are the WORST) and the motors plus the needed additional cross members across the frame to everything as rigid as possible...

i'm not a big fan of convertibles but i do have to say the supra ft1 chopped does look good, still rather have the hard top plus the hardtop actually helps to complete the rest of the epic design

If I have more money by then, I will probably go with convertible"if the coupe doesn't have removable top like Corvette"... but to be safe, I'd hold for a year for high performance variant and bug fix.

I don't have any experience with convertibles and if it was up to me i'd probably be open on going with either one and test out both, then decide which to go with.

targa would indeed be awesome to have seeing how we don't have any targa coupes on the market.
