So now we have an S2000 and Miata competition. The wheels are big and ugly though, but thats to be expected at an autoshow.....

Agreed, but lets hope we're wrong, that size looks great.

Yeah the only hope of this having been cool was if they made a 2 seat roadster, now that it is clearly a cabriolet I've lost all interest.

Roll bars

I would want roll bars. If you roll it you're dead.

By the last year of production I saw S2000's going for $28k. Kicked myself for not getting one.

Doubt it, why would a private party spend the money to do this when they know a production convertible is around the corner?

Anyone notice that the trunk looks like its past vertical when open?

I wish they would make it like the Elise. Removable hardtop center roof, ala targa. Don't have to worry about any evil people randomly stabbing the top or a need for a roll bar.

I don't hate it, it's better than I thought it would be, but definitely not something I would buy. MomHawk would love it though. Maybe I can get her to trade in her '05 Mustang Convert. on one.

I would be all over a Targa top version! With louvers. Still want the louvers.

Nice. I'd buy it if there was a hardtop version.

Those wheels look awful. Makes the normal FR-S wheels actually look decent.

I think most drop tops feature either an active or passive rollover protection - I don't see the FRS as being different. They will likely include some sort of rollover protection without adding a visual roll bar (or handle - ala 80's VW Cab, or 90's Saleen Mustang).

Note this picture does not seem to include the top stowed away. It does not appear to be folded back or retracted into the trunk - at least from the one picture.

From I have read here on the forum, the car was designed as a convertible from the beginning.

Give me a targa

Or at the very least dump the rear seats. No reason to have em there.

IMO it looks great but I will save my final judgement when I see it with the top up.

@Vladror Did you try to sell the pics/videos?

Maybe it's the wheels, but it doesn't do it for me. Just glad that there will be a convertible option for some.
