Toyota FT-1 concept is a preview of the new Supra, says journalist

Toyota unveiled the FT-1 concept at the last Detroit Auto Show last January. Many praised the design of the model, considering it very close to a production version. And apparently, the Japanese brand thinks the same way.

According to journalist Peter Lyon, the FT-1 concept is a preview of the production version of the new Supra. Toyota should promote a few changes compared to the conceptual, using hybrid powertrain (including block 2.5 V6 turbo), with total power of 402 horses.

The idea of ??the brand is to launch the successor to the Supra in the global market in 2016, below the $ 100,000 price. It is possible that there is an entry version with more modest combustion engine (2.0 turbo four-cylinder).
