Scion FR-S/Toyota GT86 Cabrio to be introduced in 2014

Article by Christian Andrei, on May 8, 2012

Someone has heard your prayers as today as Toyota decided to build a convertible version of the GT86/Scion FR-S. We don’t know exactly if we will see a Subaru BRZ Cabrio, but if the two vehicles will be a success, why not, right? We already got the idea of how the Scion FR-S Cabrio will look like, as Cartel already chopped the sporty coupe, but the official version will definitely be different.

As expected, the convertible version of the Toyota GT86/Scion FR-S will use the same platform as the coupe versions.

In fact, the platform is good enough to be used on a small four-door sedan or a larger two-door coupe. Under the hood, we find the same 2.0-liter boxer-four engine delivering 200 hp and mated to a six-speed manual transmission or an automatic gearbox.

The Scion FR-S Cabrio will take on the popular Mazda MX-5 Miata, known as one of the best small cabrios found on the market.

The new convertible will arrive sometime in 2014, as Toyota and Subaru need to satisfy the demand for the coupe versions. Expect to pay more for a Scion FR-S Cabrio, as the price will top the coupe’s $24,930 base price.
