What are the odds that there will be a production version out by June 2015?

So... I know it's all still up in the air and this is just a video game, but the revving sound in that video seems to absolutely confirm the FT-1 using a V8 (as rumors are indicating).

I was expecting it too be white like in the MotorTrend video.

Default Toyota's FT-1 Vision for Gran Turismo is an important step toward reality

Click the image to open in full size.

Quote:
Can an automaker make a virtual car for gaming and then not make it a production model. Maybe, but the evidence is mounting that the Toyota FT-1 will be the next Supra.

The name FT-1 Vision GT does not roll off the tongue as easily as “Supra.” Still, fans of the Toyota grand touring/sports car of the past still look forward to its return and any name will do – for now. Yesterday Toyota made an announcement that seems to indicate the car might actually be coming back.

Virtual Cars Become Real Cars
Toyota has partnered with Gran Turismo 6 to create a gaming version of what might be Toyota’s next true sports car. The FT-1 will soon be available for virtual driving. That is exciting, but what it says about the possibility that this car will be a reality someday soon is much more exciting. Toyota would be crazy to create a concept car, virtual car, and build hype without someday releasing the actual car.

FT-1 Vision Is A Place-Holder Name
FT is Toyota’s prototype designator for a sporty car. For example, the FT-86 became the US’ FR-S sports car. In some markets, FT-1 may indeed be the name of the possible vehicle. Hopefully, if the vehicle is a rear-drive, 6-cylinder car, it will be called Supra. Using a forced induction 4-cylinder and hybrid drivetrain has been talked about by some as a possibility for the future car, but that would not really be a Supra.

Supra Legacy
The Supra began as a rear-drive Celica in the late 1970s. Over its four generations, it became more and more capable and ultimately was one of the best grand touring cars on the road. The coupe always had an in-line six-cylinder engine and turbocharged versions were available in the last couple generations. The car was discontinued in 2002. Toyota may have backed away from the Supra to step back to more practical on-road sporty cars. In its final years the Supra was so capable it was more than a practical (affordable) GT car, and had become a near-super-car for its time.

Default Toyota FT-1 Party - It's a party, an FT-1 party!

Seeing the concept in person at a private party

Quote:
There isn't any groundbreaking news about Toyota's FT-1 Coupe yet... But we finally had the chance to see the concept in person at a private party held during the New York International Auto Show. Toyota closed off a section of The Standard Hotel and put the FT-1 on display. The party had an old school feel with retro arcade games, while famed rapper, Biz Markie, was on the 1s and 2s. There's still no word what motor or what plans are next for the possible Supra successor, but seeing this Formula One-inspired concept with our own eyes has us still dreaming about the possibilities today.

Just a fun comparison of what FT-1 would look like if it was scaled back 10%.

SF moderate Troux has posted what a 10% reduction to FT-1 would be like.

Quote:
If you insist on trying to measure, then you should realize that cutting down all 3 dimensions by 10% doesn't make the car 10% smaller.

Example:
10"x10"x10" cube = 1000 in^3 cube
9"x9"x9" cube = 729 in^3 cube

That's a reduction of 27%

Pretty much impossible to do a fully accurate volume reduction, but if we treat the LWH dimensions as those of a rectangular prism, then your factor for each dimension is the cubic root of the factor for the volume. If your new car is 90% the size of the old car, then each dimension is ~96.5% of the old, as (.965)^3 = .90.

We get:

FT-1 (10% Less)
Wheelbase: 104.2 in
Length: 177.1 in
Width: 74.9 in
Height: 46.5 in
Pretty close to the old MKIV and C7 Corvette.

MKIV Supra
Wheelbase: 100.4 in.
Length: 177.7 in.
Width: 71.3 in.
Height: 50.2 in.

C7 Corvette
Wheelbase: 106.7 in
Length: 176.9 in
Width: 73.9 in
Height: 48.6 in

Sorry.. but without a point of reference (such as a man standing next to it) the resizing of the pic is pretty pointless.
