Now that the GT 86 has officially been revealed in all three of its versions - Toyota, Scion, and Subaru - the car’s lead engineer, Tetsuya Tada, has confirmed that a convertible version will follow in the near future: "The GT 86 was designed from the outset that we can build it as a convertible."

Considering the Coupe model isn’t even for sale yet - it will be available in Spring 2012 - we don’t expect to see the Convertible anytime before next year. When it does come out, it will be offered on the Japanese market first, as a Toyota GT 86 Convertible, and the markets in the rest of the world will then follow.

All the technology and the design language will be borrowed from the coupe, except that the rear seat area will most likely be dropped. Under the hood, we’ll see the same 2.0 liter, naturally-aspirated petrol engine with 200 HP.

Prices for the future Scion FR-S Convertible will probably stand at about $2000 above the Coupe model, so it should be anywhere above $30,000.

The rear fascia’s parts have owned what’s on its front fascia. They’re more likely to catch interest.

This beauty is perfect in any road. It’s got good shape that’ll suit whatever terrain it wants to go. I’d probably ready my installment loan to be the first in line once this beast gets to U.S..

I like this car’s figure; it’s different from the other convertibles. It really has attractive headlights and taillights; they stand out.

This is better than Subaru’s and Toyota’s. At least it has some unique features. The rear is equally good-looking to its fascia.

It’s sad to say that Toyota GT86 and Scion FR-S lost the competition to Subaru BRZ.

I like the way they designed the taillights and the separated exhaust pipes.

I admire its fierce head lamps and tail lights. The separated twin exhaust pipes added more style to its rear, too.

I am currently visualizing it in its convertible version, and I honestly think it wouldn’t look all that great. Furthermore, there’s not even an improvement under its hood.

Will the cloning of this kind never stop? It’s not that I’m complaining, but I think they should stop on trying to make every concept like this.

The trio of them looks great in their convertible versions. They are designed for a coupe, but the rear seat took out of the car.
