Toyota’s chief engineer, Tetsuya Tada confirmed the Toyota GT86 will be developed as a convertible from the very beginning where the company is currently working on one. When I wrote about it last month, details were rather limited and there were no photos to accompany the confirmation.

However, in what could be an early sneak peek of the convertible model, Toyota has revealed an open-top version of their Scion FR-S. It is actually a concept car and it is known as the Scion FR-S Speedster.

The concept car will make its debut at the 38th annual Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach. The car is a collaboration between Joe Iacono of Iacono Design and Jeremy Lookofsky of Cartel Customs. The Scion FR-S Speedster pays tribute to the company’s racing heritage with classic Toyota Racing colours and the number 86 which can be seen on the car's doors and rear GT wing. As most people would know that the number 86 pays homage to the legendary Toyota Corolla 86.

The car features several one-off design cues such as modified front fenders, 61 inch rear GT Wing and a custom made front windscreen. The engine still offers the stock 200hp, although there are some modifications done to the car.

The car receives a sturdier clutch from ACT, the exhaust system is upgraded to a GReddy SP Elite exhaust system and TORCO’s synthetic SR-5 racing oil is being used. The handling and brakes department also received some modification treatment. KW Clubsport coilovers now supports the car. The suspension kit allows independent rebound and is compression adjustable.

Wildwood Superlite 6 piston radial mount callipers and Wilwood Smart brake pads are fixed onto all four corners and the callipers are painted in red. SRP drilled and slotted two-piece rotors replaces the stock brake rotors. The wheels are from Forge Line and the car uses Toyo Proxes R888 tyres.

Even though there is nothing much to relate the one-off concept car to a production model, but at least the Scion FR-S Speedster gives us an idea of what the car could look like in convertible form.

Some say that his blood is actually RON98 petrol and some say that his right foot weighs over 20kg. But all that we know about Faez is that he loves to drive and is a JDM enthusiast.
