Both cars have the air vent behind the door. Headlights are also a little similar.

And the vents on 918 and R8 probably copied from FT-HS too since they have B pillar vents, and R8 is heavily influenced by FT-HS since the headlight is also similar to NSX. I'm not defending NSX, but hate on Lexus forums toward Acura is disgusting.

Lol, I wasn't trying too "hate" on Honda/Acura. Besides the upcoming NSX, their whole entire line up is pretty bland (and this coming from a TL owner).

FT-HS, and the 918, and R8 look nothing alike.

You should go look on those Honda/Acura forums. They hate on everything that doesn't have a "H" or and "A" on the hood. I agreed with you that there needs to be less hate across all the boards. But with all the fanboys out there it is most likely isn't going to happen anytime soon.

Maybe you and LexFather can take your flight somewhere else. And can we please get back on topic? This thread is about Toyota's upcoming sports car concept.

And NSX doesn't look like FT-HS either. Well maybe the way I look at it is different from you guys.

Sorry guys, I wasn't trying to go off topic. Let's get back in.

^ I can see the similarities.... The main one being the vent behind the doors.

Not hating ... Just observing.

I can also see it...I don't know if others say different, but I clearly see it.

The weird thing is that I never see Ferrari look similar to a Lambo

I agree that the headlights and vents near the B-pillars are similar....but that's Toyota's bad. Smaller Honda is beating them to the punch with the new NSX being released sooner, so this design will now rightfully become theirs.

It is truly inexcusable how long it has/is taking Toyota to offer any type of sports car replacement for Supra/MR2 Turbo. We're now closer than ever to one finally being released... but that just means we only have to wait a few more years, lol.

That "Few" can be as much as A Few Few more years.

Toyota usually take years, and I mean 3-4 years or even more before production

Which is good though, I can keep on saving money LOL!

i hope they don't compete with NSX and GTR. i hope it won't topped out at $45k loaded. if so, it'd be sell like hot cakes just for its name plate.

It will. Expect a bit more

Because it just makes all the senses.

MK3 was costing nearly Corvette price. 45k

This will also be around the same as C7 price

kinda looks like this

the media, again, is using the s word in every article about a toyota coupe. the swan neck wing gives away that its probably a GT race car and not necessarily a road car.

If the car is going electric hybrid, I don't see it priced anywhere close to the base C7. It's probably somewhere in C7 Z06 territory, which is where the audiences don't care much about efficiency, but performance.

LF-A concept yes, but that was a special project.

I really don't know where you are getting your facts from.

Lexus displayed its Sport Coupe concept at the 1999 Tokyo Motor Show. The production version SC 430, debuted a year later at the Paris Motor Show in 2000.

FT-86 was shown at the 2009 Tokyo Motor Show. Two years later the Toyota 86 was unveiled at the 2011 Toyko Motor Show.

LF-CC was shown at the 2012 Paris Motor Show. One year later the Lexus RC was unveiled at the 2013 Toyko Motor Show.

Thats fine, every thread pretty much goes off topic at some point.

I don't think anyone is saying the new NSX is rip off of the FT-HS. But instead it appears to have some of the same styling clues. Which is fine, because a lot of cars borrow styling clues from other cars.
