Some more info has emerged on the Toyota-BMW partnership for their new sports car collaboration. Above shows an artists impression of the new vehicle which is likely to be the new Toyota Supra successor. I can’t say I’m a huge fan compared to the FT-1 concept, but it’s still a nice looking car. Time will tell how the design of the car turns out.
Even if the car is called a supra is yet to be determined, although BMW have confirmed this will be their new Z4 platform,
The 2nd version of the Toyota FT-1 concept car was released by Calty Design Center earlier in the week. It seems the only differences here is the Graphite exterior colour and re-done saddle leather interior. I’m bias as I love Grey, but damn it looks good!
I can only hope that they don’t change it too much, name it a Supra and release it into production within the next few years, come on Toyota!
Hopefully the partnership with BMW brings an I6 back, along with other chassis improvements but I’m hoping it’s not a hybrid 4cyl like some autosites have reported – only time will tell.
The new Toyota FT-1 concept was released today at the 2014 Detroit Auto show, not many details at this stage but hopefully it serves as a new platform for the supra. Few screen grabs from the live stream press conference.
