    Where was this photo taken?

    I suspect it's the one due to be shown at the Geneva Motor Show......

    Hard to see much but it doesn't grab me so far, looks a bit like it's quite a bit higher than a normal 86 too.

    Ohhh. It looks ok actually. The top would take up a lot of space in the boot. I wonder if its got a full size spare?

    I actually like it a lot...
    what I want to see is what it looks like with the roof up...I'm not usually impressed with the looks when a fabric roof goes up, just doesn't look right.
    Pic was taken in capetown, Africa

    Depends whether it's a folding hard top or not...probably isn't on cost basis, unless they do both like Mazda does with the MX-5.

    If it's just a soft top, I'd say it'll fold up where the rear seats are.

    To me it looks more like the boot area has become taller and wider to accomodate the roof in order to preserve the rear seats......

    Could be...need a better pic. On the plus side I guess there would be no problem with headroom anymore in the back seat

    This was on the carsguide.com.au section of the daily telegraph. This actually looks like a proper official shot of the convertible, rather than a spyshot.
    Out next year it seems.
