It looks like a cabriolet instead of a roadster.

as luck would have it, i took my GT86 for a drive on the franschhoek pass in South Africa today, and they were shooting a commercial for the convertible as i drove past.
Goes to show that South Africa has some of the best driving roads <clarkson> in the world </clarckson>

I second this. In my employment experience there wouldn't be a new (yes, even though they only chopped the top, it would be considered new) un-camo'd car running around outside until it has been officially unveiled at an auto show. OEMs are not big fans of having their "thunder" stolen before hand.

Or perhaps Toyobaru do not feel this is necessary?

Either way I think it's a fine looking car.
