Detroit Show Toyota FT-1 and Lexus RC F Receive the Convertible Treatment

Leave it to the internet to swiftly take action and present new iterations of cars that were introduced less than 48 hours ago. Case in point, these digital renders of the 2014 Detroit motor show’s Toyota FT-1 Concept and Lexus RC F production coupe, both of which were re-imagined as convertibles by Hungarian designer X-Tomi.

In our eyes, the best looking of the two is the Toyota FT-1 Convertible, which in this shot, looks like it was made to be a roadster model. If it ever materializes into the next Supra, (or whatever else Toyota may call a coupe positioned above the GT 86 / FR-S), as many have suggested, an open top version could be in the cards.

As for the other convertible, the 450-horsepower RC F was modeled after the older IS C with a retractable hardtop and seating for four.

Taking into consideration that coupes usually sell much better than drop top models in these high-performance segments, and that Lexus estimates monthly sales of just 200 units for the new RC F in the States, we wouldn’t give it much of a chance.

Designer: X-Tomi

    That looks really good! In fact, I think it looks better as a convertible.

    The FT-1 looks fantastic – not as sure about the RC, but that could just be because of my memories of the SC
