Toyota/Subaru FT-86 convertible planned

Toyota FT-86 concept fq

In news that’s set to shock very few, Toyota has confirmed that it will create a convertible version of its new FT-86. Though Toyota still hasn’t settled on a name for the upcoming budget rear-drive sports car, the announcement of a convertible option strengthens rumours that the Celica nameplate might be brought back from the dead.

Now, the idea of a convertible Celica isn’t really that suprising. However, what is surprising is the possibility of a convertible Subaru. Because Subaru is creating a sports car on the shared platform and has never built a drop-top car before. So this means that the very real possibility of an all-wheel drive, 300+ horsepower, 300+ lb-ft. of torque, six-speed manual Subaru roadster exists.
