SLK me no likes, even less if the top is down.
Present MX-5 is a no go for me, let alone the hard top one.

I'd still pick the Cali, with a tuned exhaust (just to change the layout), the top always up and the DSG. Not my cup of tea, but it wouldn't kill me.

That's in the incredible world where I have 200.000 and must buy an hard top convertible.

Now that I think about it, I'd go for a Micra CC and something more intriguing with the other 180.000 .

In the last part of the post you started making sense my friend...

Except that I'd get an MX-5 RC. Just sad about the stupid grinning face.

The MX-5 isn't enough MX-5 anymore, too heavy, too large, trying to compensate it with larger engines.
It's just a cheaper Z4, without the M appeal.

It's like this Infiniti (desperate attempt to be back on topic), it's trying to maintain the Coupe dynamics and sport appeal, while carrying a bit of soft luxury of a 4 seater open top, the joy of showing off your happy face while driving down the road with the top down.
It's probably (another) excellent compromise, and that's it, I'm tired of compromises, people asking for everything right now, right here.
The same car must do everything, and the worst part is that they have what they are asking for.

Not being able to make a choice is a big problem.

does it make sense? never wondered about that...

The cars that are able to do everything are, by price order, hot hatches, sports saloons and grand tourers. Everything else is a horrible compromise and should be destroyed with fire.

As for the MX-5 I disagree, but I guess that's a discussion for another topic.
