The FR-S convertible features a cloth top that can be lowered in under 20 seconds and will likely be powered by the same 2.0L four-cylinder engine as the coupe.
The sedan version is expected to arrive sometime in 2015 with an exterior that is about 187 inches long and 55 inches tall, which is almost 20 inches longer than the coupe and five inches taller. The sedan will most likely feature frameless doors and a unique rear end, but its face will be similar to the coupe.

The sedan is expected to get a turbocharged engine with around 250 horsepower with all-wheel-drive being optional. A hybrid version is also rumored.
