2022 Toyota GR 86 Convertible rendered: New sports coupe gets the angle-grinder treatment

A convertible variant of the Toyota GR 86 and twin under the skin Subaru BRZ has long been rumoured – now we know what one could look like.

This interpretation retains the car's existing 2+2 seating layout, and sees a retractable soft-top stored above the boot. The front fascia and lower rear-end are unchanged.
