Toyota FT-86

Mazda better be on the look out as Toyota is getting ready to step into the arena with the MX-5 as they pull the cover off their convertible version of the GT 86.

Toyota will display the FT-86 Open concept, a rear-wheel-drive sports convertible, at the 2013 Geneva International Motor Show.

The Toyota FT-86 Open concept is a study model based on the rear-wheel-drive 86 sports car that was created to test and verify potential sports car variations.

The concept features an electrically operated soft top, allowing a feeling of oneness with nature while maintaining the joy and sense of oneness with the vehicle created by the 86.

A Milan-based designer colour-coordinated the interior and exterior, with the resulting design evoking quality and sportiness.


The interior and exterior feature high-contrast white and navy blue that emphasise the vehicle’s proportions as well as the integrated nature of the design.

In addition, yellow-gold stitchin


g in the floor mats and seats acts as an accent conveying a sporty feel.

The styling conveys a dramatically different impression when the roof is opened.

The world premiere of the concept in Geneva is occurring at the same time as prototype engineering assessments take place.

It started at a young age with bedroom posters, the Countach of course. This slowly grew into a super car die-cast model collection, fifty five 1:18 models at the last count. At which point it had almost taken full control, the incurable Mad Car Disease ran deep though my veins all the way to the bone. And things for my loved ones just got worse as the cars where now being bought at 1:1 scale, after a BMW, HSV, and couple of Audi's, the disease reached my brain, pushing me over the edge and down the rabbits hole into the world of the bedroom poster.
