The battery could and probably is the reason for the convertible, but if the car is slow that's a hole different cup of tea. (could be a valve problem)

No power when you step on the gas could be a clogged gas filter. Very common. Also, if you drive the car in the winter, don't use gas line defroster. It clogs the whole system. Another reason for no powers is bad fuel injectors. Also very common, and very expensive.
