Your options are fairly limited for convertibles with all-wheel drive and a manual transmission. It’s limited even more so for 2010 because Audi has dropped that configuration in its TT, and its S4 Cabriolet was discontinued. For 2009, though, the TT with 3.2-liter six-cylinder ($45,140) and S4 ($57,125) both have configurations with all-wheel drive and a manual transmission.

Porsche’s Carrera also comes in a few trim models with manual and all-wheel drive, including the 4 ($95,100) and 4S ($106,100). If you have the budget for exotics, Lamborghini’s 2010 Gallardo LP560-4 Spyder ($221,000) and 2010 Murcielago LP640 roadster ($382,400) can be had in your desired configuration.
