Leaked ahead of its official unveiling at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show is the Toyota GT 86 Open Concept, a convertible variant of the North American Scion FR-S.

The soft-top convertible is rumored to be electrically operated, and overall it looks just as one would expect: a sporty convertible version of the Scion FR-S. But with any convertible model, it’ll probably have a less-stiff chassis and weigh a bit more than its coupe counterpart, which for many is a small price to pay for such a stylish open-top sports car.

Most noticeable in the leaked images is the more upscale interior in the concept. The center dash has been revamped to house a single-DIN head unit, rather than the double-DIN found in the production FR-S. In addition, a trio of gauges has taken up the space saved with a single-DIN, while a stylish “86″ piston does double duty as an iPhone mount. The interior also sports a two tone yellowish/gold and white theme, which will certainly grab the attention of show-goers in Geneva.

Check back next week when the 2013 Geneva Motor Show kicks off, where AutoGuide will have more information on the GT 86 Open Concept.
