Default The Toyota FT-1 Is Beautiful and I want it now but I can'thaveitevercuztheywontmakeit

For Alex Shen, studio chief designer at Toyota's Calty Design Research in Newport Beach, California, the words describing the sports car's styling concept came first -- words like "sexy," "honest," "organic," "kick-ass." Followed by proportions -- front/mid-engine, rear drive, just the right scale. And a wild guess at price -- maybe $60,000? "It's a Toyota," says Shen. "It ought to be affordable." Only then did lines start to appear.

If they could only get rid of that LFA rear end it would be jaw dropping.

Ah, concepts. So little grounding in reality.

They sound just like the engineers and designers who created the GTR.
And it looks like a corvette. I like a lot about it and I dislike a lot about it.

was the hood a contributing factor in your decision? if so, i totally agree. the see-thru hood and the rear lines of the car to me are very c6/c7 vette-ish. on another note the front end reminds me more of a wannabe ferrari.

not totally against the car, but if it were more "down to earth" looking i suppose i would appreciate it more.

edit: if you have Gran Turismo 6, you can own one...lol.
