Why the Renault Wind’s Roof Trumps the Miata RF

Post by ElNumbre on Tue 13 Feb 2018 - 21:02

Take a slight issue with that subheading but, interesting little article from Drive..

"[The Mazda MX-5] retractable hardtop version is a handsome thing, all flying buttresses and fastback swagger, a silhouette that’ll pull non-enthusiasts into dealerships. ... The mechanism weighs roughly 110 pounds. And, functionally, it isn’t too far off the 911 Targa’s hypnotizing robotic clasp-and-tentacle movement. So the RF is being applauded for pulling that level of showmanship from the Porsche-osphere into any schmuck’s driveway.
Too bad a weird French roadster did it better six years ago."

Great article! Not sure about these comments: By most accounts, the Wind is also a pretty forgettable drive. Tiny engine. Iffy suspension.  


...but otherwise spot on! And I actually think it looks more contemporary now than it did six years ago.

It's not the size of it, but what you do with it.
