If it has 400hp like the concept and a reasonable price, I would definately be interested. Oh, but wait I'll be in college then, so that's a no.
Reasonable for Toyota is probably around 35-40k. Remember our GT-S Celicas? 180 BHP for a "mere" 23k.

It'll be a 350Z competitor, so expect a similar price. I'd rather have this than a Z.

A 350Z competitor? This thing (if it does indeed have 400 hp) would destroy a Z. Although I did just hear about the 350Z GT-S concept, which puts out around 385 or something

Exactly.

Actually, I'm surprised by the lack of enthusiasm from everyone... this is what we've all been wishing for: A new Toyota sports car!

If Toyota marketing execs have any brains, it'll be marketed as the new Supra.

It's "cool" to bash toyota on this site. Don't worry, it's all e-talk so people can fit in. If you say something nice about toyota, you are a "fanboi," and nobody wants that label.

It's like bashing the looks of some girl on here, and in real life, people would probably sober-fvck her without thinking twice. :chuckles:

Trying not to look like a Toyota geek on a site devoted to Toyota geeks is like a guy with a penis in his mouth trying not to look gay.

I'm sure they have finicky tastes when they get to masturbate to porn stars and supermodels all the time. ;)

Seriously, everyone whines how Toyota doesn't have the balls to make a sports car and then when they finally do they flame it. I like how it looks, and as one of the people who has repeated the phrase "Toyota doesn't make sports cars," I have to give them props. I am a best bang for the buck fan, and certainly at 35k and 400hp this car could be one of them.

Fanboi still says Toyota sucks.

Toyota exec says FT-HS could be

Toyota exec says FT-HS could be 'Supra of the future'
Toyota’s FT-HS hybrid sports car concept has long been rumoured to be the precursor to the next-generation Mark V Supra but until now we’ve never had any official confirmation or even a suggestion that the two cars are in fact related. Now, on the eve of the Melbourne Motor Show, where the FT-HS will be on display, Toyota exec Peter Evans hinted at the possibility of the FT-HS becoming the Supra.

Speaking at the Australian launch of the car, Evans described the FT-HS as a “'Prius on steroids.” He then added that “it could be a vision for a Toyota Supra of the future.” The FT-HS name itself stands for Future Toyota Hybrid Sports and there’s no reason it couldn’t be the successor to the Supra.

The concept was developed by Toyota's Calty research and design centre in California and was first displayed at last year’s Detroit Auto Show.

Like previous Supras, the FT-HS is a two door sports coupe with a front mounted engine and RWD layout. Unlike past versions, the concept features an advanced 400hp hybrid powertrain, combining a 197hp electric motor with a 292hp 3.5L petrol V6. In fact, the powertrain of the FT-HS shares a lot in common with Lexus’ GS450h, giving hope that it could eventually make its way into a new sports car.
