Convertible FR-S to be on display

Reports indicate the Toyota is set to show off a pair of new concept vehicles at the Geneva Motor Show. One of the concepts is very likely to go into production and is a convertible version of the FT-86 sold in the United States as the Subaru BR-Z or the Scion FR-S.

The coupe version of the vehicle drawn a lot of comparisons to the Mazda Miata since it debuted. Ahose comparisons are certain to grow now that the convertible version is being shown off. Thker B6e second concept vehicle to be shown in Geneva is called the Toyota i-road.

This vehicle is supposed to be a compact emissions free personal mobility concept. The idea is to provide quick and efficient urban transportation for two people. The car reminds me of a cross between a motorcycle and a micro car.

Oct 13 2014 4:44pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

Daniel Sexton Gurney, age 83, is most certainly one of the giants of 20th-century motorsport. One of the multidisciplinary greats in an era of all-rounders that included Parnelli Jones, A.J. Foyt, and Mark Donohue, Gurney raced at Indy, competed in sports cars, raced in the hairball Can-Am series, and also contested in Pony Car War–era Trans-Am. He even notched a number of NASCAR victories. Of course, we at C/D fondly remember him for his 1971 transcontinental jaunt with Brock Yates. Makin ...
