It has said, the FT stands for the Future Toyota, which aims to design better cars with a higher integrated engineering evaluation, and in the present this technique is implemented for FT-86 open concept car to make its production really good in the reality. The areas where additional work is required for making the car have more advantages are its rigidity, aerodynamics, balance and the weight. All these features should be checked out properly.

Toyota has given hints about the transition of the GT86 from being a coupe to a convertible which would be relatively straightforward as the car was destined to be package protected for its designing and the engineering of the coupe depending on the parts, which includes the frameless doors which turns out to be a convertible.

A source had made a sharp comment about the inevitable loss of the car when the roof is removed, making the car loses rigidity but well that is not pronounced. All types of reinforcements regarding the structural change should be employed for the rocker panel of the car and all around the pillar and in the front bulkhead.

Overall the styling of the car reveals the dramatic impression of the car with the roof being open. In Milan the trim of the concept car has been developed. The trim mixes with the exterior having the color white and with an impression of blue fabric on the roof with sharp white along with navy blue and yellow trim inside the car.

The pricing of the grand coupe is placed around 31,000 Euros and the leading rivals of Toyota are, MX-5s to the Nissan 3707 and the Audi TT roadsters.
