Well it's just a rendering. FT means Future Toyota, alot of concepts have began with that. But I think we all know you are talking about the FT-86 which actually took styling cues from the FT-HS which most likely would have became a Supra successor if it had not been for the 2008/2009 economy slow down. I agreed, I would like to see something new with Toyota's newest flagship concept.

I know its a rendering. Seems like people are raving its looks. To me it looks boring and recycled previous FT (sportscar) concepts. Id like to see something unique. I am hoping its something special.

I think the raving is more the fact that another Toyota sports car be it new or a modern interpretation of the Supra comes to fruition.

No, Im specifically talking about the red rendered image. People think that looks good, I dont think so. Something different is needed. Not a bigger gt86 car or small LFA. If its the bmw collaborated car, Im thinking big things.

True. This car need to be a revolutionary design, not a half-a**ed done car like GT86. Transition from concept to production killed the car. performance-wise, GT86 is good as is, but got beaten by Miata in many reviews? Well...

I think the production 86/FR-S looks pretty good. I also recall a good number of reviews where the 86/FR-S was chosen over the MX-5 Miata.

Hold the F up. Is that an actual render that Toyota has released? Looks like the love child of a Lotus Elise and Corvette and I think I am in love!!!

Sorry to get your hopes up everyone. But someone on Supraforums pointed out that this maybe a teaser for another automaker and NOT Toyota...

But Carscoops is reporting the Toyota sports concept will be called "Mirai"
