Toyota and Subaru planning convertible versions of their RWD coupes

We’re pretty sure that by now you’ve heard enough about the Toyota FT-86 and the Subaru 086A. Both cars are a new rear-wheel-drive sports car developed jointly by Toyota and Subaru and will go on sale sometime in early 2011.

According to a report by AutoTelegraaf, Toyota and Subaru are both planning a convertible version of their sports coupesx. A senior official at Toyota told the publication that if the coupe launch is strong enough, the companies may plan on doing a convertible version.

From what we can gather, it is reported that the base Toyota and Subaru sports coupe models will be powered by a 2.0L turbocharged boxer engine making above 200-hp. Subaru is also planning an STI version that will pump out close to 308-hp.

If given the green light, the convertible version of the car will launch a year after the coupe goes on sale.
