Toyota shows off sexy FT-1 concept car in Detroit

Jan 13 2014, 1:07pm CST | by

Could this be the new Supra?

I like a good concept car as good as the next guy and Toyota has unveiled a cool one at the Detroit Auto Show. The car is called the Toyota FT-1 Concept and it promises to set the pace for the future design direction of Toyota. Some speculation suggests that this might be the next Supra.

The car is a front engine, real-wheel drive unit with a cockpit moved as far forward as possible for weight distribution. It has a highly sculpted design that promises to be functional. Presumably, that means the body creates down force.

Toyota has offered no specifications along with the concept car. That means there is no indication of what engine is under the hood or what sort of performance it would offer. If it is the Supra, it would likely have a turbo 6-cylinder like previous versions of the car. The car will be available to drive in Gran Turismo.

Lexus NX “Shampoo” Commercial Is Superweird, Pushes the Boundaries of Speedo Tolerance

Aug 29 2014 12:33pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

Do you enjoy foam parties? How about not wearing pants? Has Lexus got the compact luxury crossover for you! We knew Lexus had its eye on European sales when it introduced the new compact NX luxury crossover, but a commercial posted to its Japanese YouTube channel has us, er, concerned over the brand’s perception of Continental buyers. The spot—dubbed “Shampoo”—starts off conventionally enough, with an NX200t and NX300h hybrid ...

Begun the SLOG Wars Have: Uber Announces New Driver-Recruitment Initiative, Lyft Displeased

Aug 29 2014 9:59am CDT | Source: Car and Driver

If there were any doubt remaining that Uber is a flash-in-the-pan cash-grab startup rather than a serious player in the transportation sector, one need only scope the name of the company’s new initiative: SLOG. An acronym for “Supplying Long-term Operations Growth,” SLOG suggests that the company very much sees itself in the ride-sharing game for the foreseeable future. The San Francisco–based dispatch/logistics company has recently been involved in high-profile battles in global ...

2015 Toyota Tundra TRD PRO Test Drive

Aug 29 2014 8:07am CDT | Source: autoMedia.com

A couple of years ago, a lot of folks would be telling you that vehicles like the Toyota Tundra TRD PRO were going the way of the dinosaur. Gas was expensive, electric and hybrid vehicles were all the rage, and really, who needs such a big truck? Apparently, a lot of folks. The full size pickup truck market is red hot. The big three continue to duke it out for outrageous claiming rights, and imports like the Toyota Tundra and Nissan Titan show that imports can mi ...

Toyota Continues To Dominate Global Hybrid Sales (No Surprise There)

Aug 29 2014 6:30am CDT | Source: Diesel Reports

Hybrid sales might have been slow to take off in the late 1990s and early 2000s, but there are no such concerns these days.
