Toyota will show the S-FR at the end of the month in Tokyo and the official word is we are dealing with a coupe concept, but a report which emerged earlier this week said a production version will indeed be launched in 2016. Seen here is a speculative render of a roadster that would make it a direct adversary to Mazda's latest and greatest MX-5 Miata by using just about the same recipe: small body, lightweight construction, cute looks and a punchy engine.

We don't see a reason why there shouldn't be a roadster version and chances are Toyota has engineered this small sports car with an open top configuratoin as well. Hopefully we will find out more at the Tokyo Motor Show where the S-FR coupe will be showcased and it is believed the production car will stay close to the concept and is expected to use a 130 PS & 148 Nm 1.5-liter engine coupled to a six-speed manual gearbox wrapped around in a package weighing 980 kg (2,160 lbs). This hypothetical roadster will be a tad heavier, but this shouldn't have a major impact on the car's performances.

It’s not known at this point whether the S-FR will be a JDM model only or Toyota has plans to launch an international version as well.
