Actually, none of those are roadsters. They're convertibles. A roadster has no top, hard, soft, or otherwise.

The Elise comes close.

I chose the Solstice. I have a thing for fast Pontiacs :)

Jeep Wrangler? :lol:

It's a convertible, but not a roadster!

S2000. I used to have one and loved it (apart from nearly killing me several times. Wooo!)

Give me the Boxster any day. Everyone I know calls it a women's car, but I don't care. It's southern German, and it's mid-engined.

No Miata / MX-5??

Of that list, and given if I were buying one of these cars it would be for carving up roads in good weather, it'd be either the Boxster, S2000 or Elise.

No XK/XKR?

Also, no Sky? The Sky looks 200% better inside and out than the Solstice.

I agree whole-heartedly on both, and the Miata. On the XK, maybe there's a price cap? Hmm...the SLk55AMG is a bit pricey, as is the Boxter...nevermind.

What were the set of standards for getting on the poll? (no NSFW pun intended, there)
