Toyota is expected to launch a convertible version of the GT 86 between late 2013 and early 2014. To further support the news, Car and Driver has published an article where an official source has finally confirmed recent rumours about Toyota GT 86 Convertible.
The Cabrio version of the GT 86 will probably mount the same 2.0-litre boxer naturally aspirated D4-S developed with Subaru. The power output of 200 hp and 205 Nm is transmitted to the rear wheels via a manual or automatic transmission, both with 6-speed. The power delivered is not of the highest, but the lightness of the car makes it exciting to drive and responsive in every situation, both on the track and on the road.
The GT 86 coupe with manual transmission, sprints from standstill to 100 km/h in just 7.6 seconds achieving a top speed of 226 km/h, while the six-speed automatic model covers the 0-100 km/h in 8.4 seconds, with a maximum speed of 210 km/h.
