The Toyoya GT 86 and Subaru BRZ were designed from the start to be converted into drop-tops. That means only minimal bracing will be needed to stiffen the car back up. Both versions of the car and most like the Scion as well will be produced from a single Fuji Heavy Industries factory in the middle of Japan.
