Technically, the FT-86 Open Concept that's on display this week at the Tokyo Motor Show is nothing new. There's only one big difference between this car and the one that debuted at the Geneva show earlier this year: it's red. But here, that makes all the difference.
If you're anything like me, you just slogged through a freezing-ass winter, and a drive in a convertible on a sunny afternoon sounds extremely appealing right now. That's why I dig this video of the droptop FT-86 in action.
The Mazda Miata has dominated the small, open top rear-drive market for nearly 25 years now. It's a personal favorite of mine as well as many on staff here. But the Toyobaru twins have been able to match it on the fun to drive scale. They just didn't have that open top flair.
