16. Jaguar XJ-S Convertible
Introduced in the mid-1970s, the XJS was a big step for the company. Under the hood was a 3.6-liter six-cylinder. There was also a 5.3-liter V12 engine, which was a better choice if you wanted the full GT experience.
The XJS was an extremely popular choice, especially in America. Jaguar sold the majority of 115,000 cars made in the States. Due to its elegance, power, and speed, the XJS remained in production for an incredible 21 years. It’s still a respectable car in every way. The coupes are more common but convertibles are better to drive (via Jaguar Heritage).
