The open top concept has been recently displayed at a dealer meeting in Atlanta, which hints that it might go into production after all.

“They don’t show product they don’t plan on building,” told a California Toyota dealer in an interview with Automotive News. The FR-S convertible will be also sold with Toyota badges as well and there might even be a Subaru BRZ version if they agree.

Toyota has also came up with a drawing of a possible subcompact crossover that will be smaller than the RAV4 in order to compete against Honda’s upcoming Fit-based crossover.

There are no further details on the possible crossover, but Toyota’s senior vice president Bob Carter said that the FR-S convertible “is under study but has not been green-lighted.”
