Toyota has revealed its upcoming FT-86 Open convertible concept, offering a first look at what is expected to become a future production model.

Bound for next week's Geneva Motor Show, the official reveal today of the new topless Toyota follows the appearance of a single spy photo in the South African press earlier this month.

Toyota has described the Open as a "preview of a possible future variant," suggesting the current 86 Coupe will soon welcome a convertible sibling.

The carmaker has not been shy about its intentions for the 86, confirming at the Coupe's unveiling that the platform had been developed to accommodate hard- and soft-top models.

The convertible features an electrically operated soft-top roof, keeping weight down and - in Toyota's words - "allowing a feeling of oneness with nature".

As a concept, the FT-86 Open adds a number of unique elements, including a more luxuriously appointed interior with a leather-wrapped dash and an 86 badge-styled iPhone mount.

The unveiling of the FT-86 Open comes more than three years on from the original concept's debut in Tokyo, which was followed by the FT-86 G and the FT-86 II concepts.

If the Open concept makes its way to production, it will be Toyota's first global convertible since the last-generation MR2 left the market in 2006.

Mechanical details have not been revealed, but we can likely expect the Open to draw power from the same 147kW four-cylinder Subaru boxer engine featured in the Coupe.

Watch for more details to come at next week's Geneva unveiling.
