As predicted Toyota has unveiled a new sports car concept at the Detroit Auto Show, the FT-1 concept, which may be a preview of a successor to the much loved Supra. FT-1, which stands for “Future Toyota” draws inspiration from Toyota’s sports cars from the past and also looks to the future with styling cues from the latest Toyota concept cars.

The FT-1 is a dream-project for a designer and car enthusiast like myself,” said Alex Shen, Calty’s Studio Chief Designer. “Our team was heavily influenced by Toyota’s sports car past, especially Celica and Supra, and we sought to capture some of that history. It is an aggressive, track-focused sports car concept with a presence that has been amplified for shock and awe.”

Will Toyota make it? Only time will tell, but the good news is that Toyota did recently sign a partnership with BMW to build a new mid-size sports car.
