The speed and adrenaline enthusiasts will love the fact that the high-performance sports convertible is about to release its second generation. Although it has not been officially confirmed yet, the new Toyota GT-86 Convertible seems to be on its way to hit the market as a 2019 Toyota GT-86 Convertible model.
The fans will probably be more than satisfied with the exterior features that the 2019 Toyota GT-86 Convertible will reveal to public. This topless sports car with excellent performance will definitely draw everyone’s attention wherever you go. It is true that it will keep most of the features you have already found on the regular model, so you shouldn’t expect anything revolutionary to happen around here. On the other hand, the new GT-86 Convertible will simply promise a fun and exciting ride, wind in your hair and pure pleasure and adrenaline. When it comes to changes and improvements, the carmaker will mostly use lightweight materials such as aluminum and carbon fiber in its chassis construction. This lightweight convertible will therefore be able to improve its acceleration and overall performance significantly. Besides its reduced weight, its aerodynamic shape will also contribute a lot. This sports car will have a race-inspired exterior design, with longer hood and shorter rear part. The front fascia will be more aggressive than it has been the case with its predecessor due to a larger black grille, sportier massive bumper and extended splitter. The rear part of this model will also be sporty and dynamic due to a larger rear spoiler. The new GT-86 will also appear with an improved suspension system that only adds up to its handling, stability and safety, especially at high speeds. This model should stand on standard 18-inch aluminum wheels.
The cabin of the 2019 Toyota GT-86 Convertible will perfectly match its sporty and elegant exterior. This model will proudly show off its two comfortable seats covered in premium leather as well as some serious updates in terms of technology. The sports steering wheel should also be leather-wrapped and multifunctional. Besides materials and latest technology options found inside the new GT-86 Convertible, the carmaker should also improve its safety systems and driver assist features.
When it comes to engine choice offered under the hood of the 2019 Toyota GT-86 Convertible, two options have been most speculated. One of them could use a 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine that would deliver 180 horsepower and 220 pound-feet of torque. The other one includes the current 2.0-liter four-cylinder with 200 horsepower and 190 pound-feet of torque. When it comes to transmission, it has not been confirmed yet whether the new convertible will be mated to a six-speed or a brand-new eight-speed automatic.
