Ever since the launch of the Toyota 86 and GT 86, and its Scion FR-S and Subaru BRZ twins, there have been many rumors swirling around about a convertible version(s) of the successful coupe series.

As it turns out, Toyota is indeed considering such a model and will actually display a concept version at next month’s Geneva Motor Show.

Named the FT-86 Open concept, Toyota says it “previews a possible future development of the award-winning GT86 sports coupe” and that its goal is to “gauge the public reaction to the idea of an open-top GT86”.

The Japanese carmaker went one step further adding that “testing of a prototype version of the car is already underway”, which means if public reaction is positive, we could see a production model within the next year or so in both Toyota 86/GT86 and Scion FR-S trims.

The first official sketch of the concept shows that it will have a 2+2 seating layout, but we can’t see if it gets a regular cloth (more likely) or a retractable metal top.
