The Stang would be my 2nd choice, I'm sure they would all be fun to drive.

Not sure "practical" and "Mustang 5.0" go together, but sure, if I could justify it to my wife that way, I'm all for it! :)

SOMEWHAT practical, as compared with the Camaro for example, which is not.

I've had them as rentals, the two of us, and they are OK.  The steering is pretty lame.

In a Friday interview with Motor1, Corvette Assembly Plant Manager Kai Spande let slip that we should expect to see the Corvette convertible "in the October timeframe.” Admittedly that’s a big circle to put on a calendar, but Spande’s words at least give us some clarity on when to expect the Corvette convertible.

If Chevy sticks to an October introduction of the all-new Corvette convertible, we should see the open-air model in showrooms by early 2020—just in time for warmer spring weather.

The Corvette convertible will use a retractable hardtop that will fold into a compartment just behind the passenger cabin. Because the roof will essentially sit on top of the Corvette's mid-mounted engine when retracted, the C8 convertible will do without the coupe's clear engine cover.

That sounds to me like a pretty fun car one could have for about $70,000.  Or so.

We’ve recently named the Porsche 718 Cayman/Boxster as our Editor’s Pick for Best Sports Car on Just Get This.

https://gearpatrol.com/2019/09/11/best-sports-car-you-can-buy/

The Cayman S has a top speed of 180 miles per hour and does 0-60 miles per hour in 4.0 seconds, which is plenty for every man.
