The Toyota FT-1 Concept is unveiled. What do you think of it?

| ....I didn't even hear about this. Looks like a frs mixed with a GT-R and a Supra....
So wait...there are rumors going about of a sports coupe...but it's called the Mirai..which this isn't.
So they're showing off a second sports car?
Edit: Nvm, I think the Mirai might be the FT-1

|I'd sell my FRS for that in a heart beat|

Sadly, there's no plans of putting it into production...But if it did make it, it'd most likely be in the $60,000 market.

|I see styling cues from all generations of Celica and Supra, except for that front nose which is like a 7th gen Celica with a massive hard on.|

| Yeah the front nose is very TS030 like, overall the first time I saw it I thought I liked the photoshopped black car better, but this grew on me fast.
The first thing that comes into mind is a Japanese twist on a Alfa Romeo 8C, or a very modernized 2000GT.
I'm ultimately ok with this, I would LOVE to see it toned down for a production model but alas, that is only a dream.

|To me it looks like a mix of the Supra, FRS, GT-R, FT-HS Concept, and that weird spoiler lip thing from a Z4.|

|Hopefully this would have the same story like the FT-86's production model..|

|The front nose looks like something taken from their LMP's. It can also be a nod to their F1 history, maybe the FT-1 naming convention can sound like F1 without the 'T'. The '1' in the name can also mean all sports models put together in the car. The nose has grown into me since, and I like it with it.|

| I want this sooooo bad.
I emailed Toyota complaining about them being a cock tease.
So much want!

| ...holy shit
Toyota has confirmed that the FT-1 will become the next-generation Supra.
Looking further, it may just be speculation after all...T_T

It looks like this is the real thing sir, Toyota has renewed the rights to the 'Supra' branding. Looks like we will have a MK5 shortly after a near 15 year hiatus.
