Toyota FT-86 Open Concept
Automotive News (subscription required), without citing a source, reports that production of a convertible FR-S/GT 86 twin was under consideration but the expected sales volumes were too low to justify the development resources.
The news is sure to be a shock to fans of the FR-S and GT 86, as the FT-86 Open concept was well received and certainly a stunning car.
To make matters worse, it’s also reported that the FR-S and GT 86 won’t be receiving any official performance upgrades, despite their engines developing an anemic 200 horsepower. It’s alleged Toyota would rather leave the performance upgrades to the aftermarket industry.
