Fuji Heavy Industries President Yasuyuki Yoshinaga has dismissed the possibility of a Subaru BRZ Convertible.

Speaking to Automotive News, Yoshinaga said "Our engineering department told me that losing the entire roof requires a complete redesign of the structure." The executive went on to say if they don't make a BRZ Convertible, there won't be a Scion FR-S or Toyota 86 convertible either. As he explained, "We make the car, so if we don't make it, it can't happen."

Interestingly, Yoshinaga's statement contradicts Toyota's claim that the Toyotaru triples were always envisioned to be offered as convertibles. When Toyota introduced the GT 86 Open concept they said the model was "package protected with a cabriolet in mind."
