There have not been any official information about the new 2018 Toyota GT-86 convertible, but the rumor has it that this model will make its debut in 2018. We are waiting for the company to confirm these speculations and if so, the fans of this attractive and topless sports car will be delighted.
The first generation of this model was presented in 2011 and ever since then the fans have been waiting for an upgrade. However, it seems that the 2018 Toyota GT-86 Convertible could retain the same shape and similar dimensions as the ones of the current model. It will probably be based on the Toyota TNGA platform and get a lighter chassis. The weight will be reduced due to materials used in its body construction, such as carbon fiber. So, you can hope for an excellent handling and stability as well as an improved acceleration and performance of this model. The front fascia will appear massive with its new chrome grille and a sports bumper while the back part of the car will be sporty and rounder. The latest LED technology will be used in headlights, fog lights and taillights. It has also been speculated that the new GT-86 Convertible will be standing on 18-inch alloy wheels.
Inside the 2018 Toyota GT-86 Convertible, you can expect a perfect combination of sophisticated and sporty features. Its spacious and comfortable cabin will certainly not let you down and this next-generation Convertible will simply provide everything you need. Leather and other high-quality materials will be used to cover the seats, dashboard and other elements. The fans have also been anticipating the upgraded technology features such as the infotainment and entertainment systems. These will include a larger touch screen display with navigation, audio system, climate control, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi connection, USB ports and others. Toyota will also pay attention to safety and offer the necessary driver assist features and systems.
The company also has not confirmed the information about the engine that the new 2018 Toyota GT-86 Convertible will be hiding under its hood, but it has been guessed that this model will probably use the 2.0-liter four-cylinder petrol engine that has been seen in its predecessor. Such an engine is able to deliver 200 horsepower and 190 pound-feet of torque, but the new model is expected to be more powerful than the current one. The fans have been expecting that the engine will probably be mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission and get a rear-wheel-drive system.
