Thanks for the news...
The styling and design department should be handed over to BMW, seriously. Toyota styling sucks and this is yet another proof..

Looks like a prius trying to be i8.. dunno how it drives though..

Are you serious? This looks kick ass. Punch some holes in the front though.

" It's not clear if the design of the new Toyota will be inspired by the 300kW hybrid six-cylinder FT-HS concept (pictured) that was lauched at the 2007 Detroit motor show"

I like the idea of joint ventures, it brought us the BRZ last time Toyo did this.

It also brought us the Geo Tracker so I wouldn't get too excited.

Wasn't the tracker technically a 3rd party build? Not so much a collaboration, more like an outsourced build. And that was the 90s. And it was Chevrolet and Geo. not exactly apples to apples.

I quoted this for a reason. The car pictured is not necessarily the one the article is talking about.

Possibly.

I dig the silver one. Delete the hybrid and Stick a 6mt in it, and I'll give it a look.
