The management of the Japanese company has officially confirmed that based on the new sports coupe GT 86 will be created an open version. But the model which is produced now has nominally a four – seat cabin then the novelty will have only two seats. The network painters have demonstrated their vision of the future novelty and the related model of Subaru BRZ also without a roof. Although the representatives of the Subaru Corporation nothing have said about any such plans yet.
It is clear Toyota has decided who to compete with: the main competitor – Mazda MX – 5, which for many years has had the title of the most sold roadster in the world. And Toyota has a good chance! In the case of the equal weight GT 86 has a more powerful engine. Its 2 – liter boxer develops 200 hp and the “atmospheric” of the Mazda Corporation gives the same amount of force 160. However, its popularity the model of the MX – 5 has earned not only by the sporting qualities, but also by the low price. In the West, the coupe Toyota GT 86 is more expensive than the open version of Mazda by around 2500 Euros. The roadster is likely to be even more expensive.
