    I would want the Supra to be build on the LC coupe chassis, powered by the new LS V6 Twin Turbo engine....

    The part behind the seats looks a bit off to me.

    That would have been heavier then a GTR, with only RWD. No thanks, they went in the right direction if they were going to make a big departure in size and weight from the mk4.

    Here's the thing. Probably many of you forgot this important fact. The reason why the LC is so damn heavy in the first place is because the chassis has been stiffened and added a lot of rigidity to the level that it supports a convertible in the first place. It will probably weigh not much heavier than the LC coupe itself. All they had to do was just chop the roof off and that's it.

    correct, it's another compromised chassis weight wise due to the extra bracing, just like the RC platform... but at least they're actually using it for convertible purposes I guess.
