Article by Christian Andrei, on May 31, 2012

According to the latest reports, Toyota and Subaru are expected to decide if a convertible version of the GT86/BRZ rear-wheel-drive sports car will be produced. Tetsuya Tada a.k.a. Toyota GT86 project engineer told Autocar that a convertible version is technically feasible. If built, the vehicle will hit the market by 2014.

Toyota also wants to develop a series of model variations and performance pack offerings. “We have not seen a third of the development planned for the GT86,” said Tada.

The engine is expected to remain the same: a 2.0-liter four-cylinder boxer delivering 200 hp and a maximum torque of 205 Nm at 6,600 rpm.

The engine is mated as standard to a six-speed manual transmission while a 6-speed automatic gearbox is offered as an option. The convertible version is expected to keep the same dimensions: 4,240mm long, 1,285mm high and 2,570mm wide.
