After the Sebring was tagged as a poor-man's drop top and ridiculed by NBC's
The Office as middle-manager Michael Scott's convertible of choice, that name had to go. The 200 not only brought back a semblance of respect to the affordable convertible, but jump-started sales for the foundering line. The 87,000 sold last year were not only a vast improvement over the 38,000 Sebrings sold in 2010, but the most the Sebring/200 line had sold since 2007.
