The 911, Bentley Continental, Aston DB9 and countless other cars continue with cloth tops because they look better, don't eat trunk space and when the chassis flexes, they don't drive their painted parts into fixed components and result in pricey repairs.
Agree to an extent but the Mercedes SL looks great with the top up. Plus my dad has a 6er vert and at high speeds with the top up it gets loud in the cabin.
