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.
