Toyota FT-86 Open Concept Would Be a Great Car for the Coming Summer

Toyota has unveiled the FT-86 Open Concept at the Geneva Motor Show, previewing a possible cabriolet version of the GT 86. Toyota says the concept was created to gauge customer reaction and seeing the reaction from different media outlets and people we are convinced Toyota will take it to production soon.

The FT-86 Open Concept retains the 2+2 seating format with minimal impact on luggage capacity compared to the hardtop model. The cockpit has not changed, just comes with a unique interior design and overall colour scheme.

The only visual exterior difference compared to the GT 86 coupe is the multi-layered fabric roof with a glass rear window.

The FT-86 Open concept shares the platform and powertrain of the GT 86, meaning a 198bhp 2.0-litre boxer is under the bonnet with power sent to rear wheels.
