For sale: Road-tested German sports cars

The one question we get asked all the time is: What do you do with your test cars when you’re done with them? Since we buy every car we test, we can’t just simply give the cars back to the manufacturer when we’re done, like a typical press loan. Hence, we have to sell them.

We usually find someone among the hundreds of Consumer Reports employees that’s interested in buying the retired test car or we might simply trade it in for a new one.

That time has come for several convertibles and for a twist, we thought we’d offer these entertaining roadsters to our readers.

Forget how cold and gray it is in much of the country—spring will be here soon. And when the sun is shining, what’s more fun than a drop-top sports car ?

If you are interested in one of the low-mileage sports cars listed below, you can save about $10,000 over the price as-new and take delivery at the Consumer Reports test track in East Haddam, Connecticut. We’ll even give you a tour of the facilities and a few laps on the handling track in your new car. (Learn how Consumer Reports tests cars .)
