I would like to buy an American-made ragtop convertible, or at least one whose parts are made in America.
Indeed, a handful of convertibles are still made in America, including the Ford Mustang and Chrysler 200 (both built in Michigan) and the Chevrolet Corvette (Kentucky). The Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder was built in Illinois until production ended in August, but 2012 models are still in stock at dealers.
The Chevrolet Camaro convertible is made in Ontario, Canada, and has about 60 percent “domestic” parts content, meaning the parts come from the U.S. or Canada. These days, where a vehicle is assembled tells only part of the story because parts can come from around the world.
If you’re willing and able to drop more bucks on an American droptop, there’s also the California-built Tesla Roadster electric car, $109,000 (before any tax credits).
