Toyota shows off sexy FT-1 concept car in Detroit

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.

2015 Toyota Tundra

The 2015 Toyota Tundra is not a primary player in the ultra-competitive pickup world. In fact, it’s more of a loyalty offering to Toyota fans—it’s not winning away many buyers from Ford, GM, or Ram trucks. Although it doesn’t stand out in any of the categories that pickup buyers are kee ...

Toyota Dressed an 850-Horse Tube-Frame Dragster In Plain-Jane Camry Clothing for SEMA

Nov 4 2014 3:11pm CST | Source: Car and Driver

Outrageousness abounds at the 2014 SEMA show, so for a moment you might be excused for thinking this silver 2015 Camry wears nothing more involved than some custom wheels and smoky tint. That impression will swiftly fade, though, when the mild-mannered sedan flips open, Funny Car-style, to reveal a tube frame dragster powered by a supercharged, nitro-huffing V-8 sending 850 screaming horses to the rear wheels. This is one Camry you do no ...

The Toyota Camry is the gold standard of beige. Apparently knowing that full well, Toyota saw fit to take to SEMA the ultimate Sleeper Camry. No, seriously.
