Toyota GT 86 Convertible to Debut at 2013 Geneva Motor Show

With the wheels and tires from a Toyota Prius and only 200 horsepower on tap, the GT 86 (Scion FR-S) was always going to be about the fun side of life. And what could be more fun than hooning in a drop-top version.

According to AutoCar, this will be ready very soon, as Toyota has optedto show the GT 86 Convertible at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, which is in March of next year.

The engineers have reportedly chosen to make it a soft-top in order to keep the added weight to a minimum. They’ve also removed the rear seats, which would have been far too impractical.

Power will likely remain the same: 200 horsepower coming from a 2.0-liter boxer engine.

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.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
