Though plenty of photos of the FT-86 Open Concept were leaked onto the Internet prior to the vehicle’s official debut, the Japanese automaker spilled more details on the four-seater convertible at its debut. Since the GT-86 was built on the premise of delivering high levels of driving excitement, Toyota managed to add just 13 pounds to the convertible model while still delivering a near-perfect 53:47 front-to-rear weight distribution. In fact, the removal of the hard-top roof improves the sports car’s center of gravity.
