At the Geneva Motor Show, it was introduced as the Toyota FT-86 Open Concept, but you can bet your Gundam that this will soon be sold as the new Scion FR-S Convertible in the States. Toyota says the Open Concept was created to gauge consumer reaction to the possible development of a cabriolet version of the GT-86 (FR-S in the USA), but a strong public reception is a foregone conclusion.
