That reason is plenty enough for me for any low, hard-to-get-into sports cars. That's why I like convertibles. I almost always have the top down, putting it up only when absolutely necessary, which takes less than 10 seconds, anyway.Allan Gibbs said:
Seriously, is there any other application for the gull wing beside making entry/exit easier?
I think the stiffness comes mostly from the frame, i.e. targa vs cabriolet 911's. A full frame would be stiffer than the targa top Elise where the bolts and fasteners of the top are the weakest link.transio said:Wouldn't the regular hardtop add more stiffness to the frame than the gullwing?
