Forget the successor to the Ferrari Enzo… Toyota is looking to steal the show in Geneva next month with the debut of a Convertible version of the 2013 AutoGuide.com Car of the Year.

OK, technically it’s the GT86, not the Scion FR-S, but if they’re not exactly the same car, they are in spirit.

Confirming on-again, off-again rumors that a drop-top version of the GT86 is in the works, a concept version of the GT86, called the FT-86 Open Concept, will debut in the Swiss city. And while it’s not confirmed for production, Toyota has said it, “previews a possible future development of the award-winning GT86 sports coupe.”
