Fly topless.

Saab started out making airplanes, not cars, and the company's heritage shows in the contemporary aerodynamic design of the Saab 9-3 Arc Convertible. Start with the cockpit, which surrounds you with data on the ride, not to mention enough colors and lights to suggest a flight simulator. When the sun goes down, the cockpit gets even cooler: Push a button, and a "night panel" mode darkens most of the display, lighting up functions only as needed-improving your night vision. The 9-3's performance will also make you feel like you're flying. The 2.0-liter, 210-horsepower high-output turbo proves that four cylinders can really take off. Front-wheel drive plus a no-nonsense traction control system make maneuvers a breeze. And the top really fits: With the top up, your ride is quiet; top down, the sky belongs to you.
