UPDATE: Watch the Toyota FT-86 Open concept in motion in the added video
The Toyota FT-86 Open concept, which you saw a preview sketch of earlier, has finally been unveiled in its entirety through a load of images, ahead of its Geneva show debut. The 86 convertible concept features a soft top (as yet unclear if manual or electrically operated) and 2+2 seating.
The concept’s goal is to gauge public reaction to the idea of an 86 convertible. By concept standards it actually looks pretty tame, which could mean that the production car, if it happens, won’t stray very far from this, visually at least.
Save for some high-contrast colours (coordinated by a Milan-based designer, no less), yellow-gold stitching on the floor mats and seats, and centre console-mounted gauges, the interior looks to be unchanged from the 86 coupe‘s.
Toyota hasn’t said anything yet about specifications, but the 2.0 litre flat-four is likely to stay, kicking out 200 PS and 205 Nm of torque. Like the coupe, manual and automatic transmissions should be offered.
Prototype testing is already underway, according to the company. More info to come when the wraps come off, which isn’t far away now. In the meantime, tell us what you think, or read our review of the Toyota 86 coupe here.
