Convertible Toyota GT86 teased for Geneva debut

JonathanFebruary 1, 2013

Japanese vehicle giant Toyota has revealed a sketch image, which teases a convertible concept version of the GT86 sports car.

Deemed the FT-86 Open concept, the teaser shot appears to display a vehicle with a 2+2 design and a folding roof that neatly integrates itself beneath a flat rear deck arrangement.

Due to the roof being open on the sketch of the GT86 prototype convertible, drivers have been left in the dark about whether the car will come complete with a folding soft-top or a folding hard-top roof.

However, much more about the unique vehicle is set to be revealed when Toyota gives the car its world premiere at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show.

The prestigious motoring event, which will this year be held between March 7th and 17th, will be used by the Japanese car maker to gauge public reaction to the idea.

Despite this decision, Toyota has also revealed that it will be pushing ahead with engineering tests on the prototype at the same time that the 83rd Geneva International Motor Show is being held.

Little else has been revealed about the Toyota FT-86 Open concept car, though MSN Cars has suggested that a lack of a bonnet scoop at the front of the vehicle hints that the manufacturer’s rumoured turbocharged boxer engine will not be fitted.

To celebrate the unveiling of a convertible Toyota GT86, motorists are encouraged to sample the original vehicle by taking advantage of some great contract hire deals.

For one, the Toyota GT86 2.0 D-4S two-door Coupe Auto is available for just £299.99 a month and is capable of going from 0-62mph in a mere 8.2 seconds. The car also delivers fuel economy of 39.8mpg on a combined cycle and limits CO2 emissions to an impressive 164g/km.

Those who prefer their vehicles to be designed with manual drive should instead check out the Toyota GT86 2.0 D-4S two-door Coupe.

Monthly instalments of £285.95 a month returns a car that can hit 62mph from rest in a blistering 7.6 seconds, as well as deliver 36.2mpg on a combined cycle.
