TMC to Display 'FT-86 Open Concept' at Geneva Motor Show

 Toyota City (3/1) - Toyota's FT-86 Open concept
Toyota City, Japan, Mar 1, 2013 - (JCN Newswire) - Toyota Motor Corporation (TMC) will display the "FT-86 Open concept", a rear-wheel-drive sports convertible, at the 83rd Geneva International Motor Show(1). The show will be held in Geneva, Switzerland from March 5 through 17(2).

The FT-86 Open concept is a study model based on the rear-wheel-drive sports car "86"(3) that was created to test and verify potential sports car variations. The concept features an electrically operated soft top, allowing a feeling of oneness with nature while maintaining the joy and sense of oneness with the vehicle created by the 86.

A Milan-based designer color-coordinated the interior and exterior, with the resulting design evoking quality and sportiness. The interior and exterior feature high-contrast white and navy blue that emphasize the vehicle's proportions as well as the integrated nature of the design.

In addition, yellow-gold stitching in the floor mats and seats acts as an accent conveying a sporty feel. Furthermore, the styling conveys a dramatically different impression when the roof is opened.

(1)Officially known as the 83e Salon International De L'Auto & Accessories Geneve
(2) Press days: March 5 and 6; public days: March 7 to 17
(3) Sold as the "GT-86" in Europe
