Toyota GT 86 Convertible Leaked Ahead of Geneva Motor Show Debut

Toyota GT 86 Convertible Leaked Ahead of Geneva Motor Show Debut

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.
