As with any sports car I think that there is a natural wondering if there will be a convertible / rag top version. After all, 2-seaters look best as a convertible in my opinion. Sure, we don’t have any idea what the production Supra is going to look like, but that doesn’t have to stop us from speculating on what a possible Supra convertible would be like. The render below shows the FT1 Concept as a convertible. It looks a bit awkward with the FT-1 like nose. Considering I’m not expecting the concept to be exactly like the production version, it seems pretty unlikely that the Supra convertible would look like this.
When Calty presented its plan to Toyota at its Nagoya headquarters, the timing was perfect. At the 2011 Tokyo Auto show, Akio Toyoda had insisted, “Now we have a new slogan, ‘Fun To Drive Again.’” And he made it perfectly clear that he wants a Supra-like car back in the lineup. So he gave his blessing and Calty’s in-house Supra-like sports car saw green light to become a concept car.
Top Speed shows us a Supra Convertible that looks much more like a possible production version. They have given it a more normal nose, and they have made the headlights a bit less extreme as well.
Previous Supras have not gotten the convertible treatment however. This leads me to believe that it is not a done deal that there will be a next-generation Supra convertible, though Top Speed predicts that it will come out a year after the Supra Coupe comes out. As the Supra is a performance vehicle, I am also a little skeptical about the added weight that the convertible roof requires.
