I'd normally agree but there is one rare example from long ago that id call sexy and it's the 2000 gt beautiful little car
Zachary Fix Mar 11, 2012
Sexy and Toyota don't mix The praise is a ground breaking What about Honda they where the first car company to sell a hybrid to the public and ford and GM they where one of the first to try and sell electric cars
Rami Wilson Mar 11, 2012
Sexy and toyota should NEVER be used in the same sentance.
Trent Bourgeois Mar 11, 2012
Nice name. It must be opposite day.
Paul Lissona Mar 11, 2012
We had an extra car a 90 Camry and sold it in one day after I put an ad on craigslist $1,900. That's good right now for it.
Alex Leu Mar 11, 2012
They sell you can't argue that
Patrick Joseph Mar 11, 2012
Mechanically speaking toyotas are great. But look wise they are a little dull. You buy one cause you don't wanna see your local mechanic more often than your own grandma. Not because you want to be thrilled. They need to work on the looks.
Brandon Whybrew Mar 11, 2012
exactly what I thought when I read it
Buddy Robinson Mar 11, 2012
Never thought I'd see those three words in the same title
Description: Word on the street is that the FT-HS could be the spiritual successor to the Supra. Toyota's conceptual sportscar is designed to compete with the Nissan 370Z and would boast a 400hp hybrid engine...

Just wish some of you guys can see the fuel prices in other places besides north America. I just filled up my Lexus as cost me $122 and it was only 58 liters. :-/ Times are changing.
Jason Brown Mar 11, 2012
David you are absolutely right. Times are changing and the smart manufactures are thinking about the future and the demands of their future consumers. Putting more hybrids in the market now will only help to reduce their prices later.
Patrick Schalk Mar 11, 2012
For real. Prime example, the CRZ. If they would've just put a nice NA 2.0 in it with a manual it would've sold SO much better. AND it would maintain good mpgs and still be really fun to drive. It'd make it a lot easier to tune too.
Alex Leu Mar 11, 2012
The lancer is coming back as a hybrid I thought..anyways if the supra did come back with over 400hp but was a hybrid im sure it would still be fast
Patrick Joseph Mar 11, 2012
I get your point David. But true car enthusiasts love their manual transmissions and their classics. You don't revive an old name if you're going to dramatically change the essence of the car. It will tarnish the name.
Matthew Reindorp Mar 11, 2012
I agree with both of you... There should be a good mix of hybrid and normal throughout the car industry but they should be new cars not existing ones
Matt Piccolo Mar 11, 2012
370z, challenger, mx-5, camaro, mustang, lancer, impreza, their not hybrids and r doing fine, so y does Toyota have to change it with theirs, I mean I know many cars r going to go hybrid in a few years but leave the sports cars
David Morris Mar 11, 2012
I hope they do it. Times are changing. Get used to it. If the car is awesome being hybrid wont matter
Micah Buffat Mar 11, 2012
Not my idea of "sexy"
Abraham Mendoza Mar 11, 2012
I'm sorry for sayin this, but they won't make it. I saw this concept like, 6 years ago.
Mikey Jimenez Mar 11, 2012
Matt this is the only time I agree with it's not the same when you can't smell and hear what's working underneath the hood. I can't really explain why I love gas powered engines but if you're a true gear head you know what I'm trying to say...
Matt Piccolo Mar 11, 2012
With the nsx and skyline for performance.. Y not do it again!!!!!
Matt Piccolo Mar 11, 2012
I've been thinking, if Toyota gave this enough power, this by far has the looks to be a super ar... I think it looks beter than the lfa, it could once again compete with the Nsx an gtr... Back in the 90's this was way beter than a 300zx.. And was up
Thomas Lee Mar 11, 2012
I agree with Scott why are people crying about that. Gawd worse than my little cousins fighting over a Jolly Rancher flavor
Zachary Sindelar Mar 11, 2012
Damn, look at that one! (bug guts)
Scott Gracey Mar 11, 2012
Don't really see why it matters if it's hybrid or not, as long as it puts Down good numbers
Matt Piccolo Mar 11, 2012
Again, their are tones of sports cars out their, 2 or 3 are hybrids right now, y change it... Make the rest of ur cars hybrids and leave one ( ur sports car) alone... If all other sports cars aren't hybrids, people won't buy this, or at least not as many as if it weren't a hybrid!!
David Morris Mar 11, 2012
Because they are smart and see that works isnt the same as it was back when supras were in production
Matt Piccolo Mar 11, 2012
So why in the world would they want to take such a good looking car, give it an iconic name, and they making it a f**king hybrid!?
Jason Brown Mar 11, 2012
Later this week I'll be able to test drive the GS is Seoul, Daechi dealership. Pretty excited, looks much better in person.
Jason Brown Mar 11, 2012
They don't sell the concept cars there. They built the showroom/dealership to bring out innovation. My friend told sometimes they let special guest test drive new models, like the new Lexus GS before it entered the market.
kcool Mar 11, 2012
looks kinda like a future camry
Abraham Mendoza Mar 11, 2012
Oh I remember this one. I feel so old saying that...
Alex Leu Mar 11, 2012
Actually looks decent imo
Brandon Whybrew Mar 11, 2012
@Jason. that's pretty sweet Ive never heard of dealerships having concept cars.
Kevin Rehbock Mar 11, 2012
Why would they do that? Most concepts aren't street legal.
Elijah McCord Mar 11, 2012
Do they eventually sell the concepts at the dealerships?
Matt Piccolo Mar 11, 2012
Beautiful... Theirs not one thing I would change on this!!!!!!!! 400 + hp and it's perfect.... BUT NOT A HYBRID!!!!!
Jason Brown Mar 11, 2012
@Brandon. The Toyota tech display store on Champs-Élysées, Paris has concepts all the time. I was there two almost two years ago and saw some other off the wall concepts. Wish I had seen something like this one.
Sam Oglesby Mar 11, 2012
Change the front bumper and it could be a winner
Steven Nevets Mar 11, 2012
Wider headlights and this would be perfect
Carlos Gallego Rodriguez Mar 11, 2012
Yes.... Obiously it wasn't on sale
Chris Bridgers Mar 11, 2012
Some dealerships showcase concepts in large dealerships..
Brandon Whybrew Mar 11, 2012
it hasn't even been made. which is why it says it would have a 400hp motor
Brandon Whybrew Mar 11, 2012
you saw a concept car in a dealership?
Carlos Gallego Rodriguez Mar 11, 2012
I saw this car 1 month ago in a dealer in Paris and it was just.... Perfect
Tanner Middleton Mar 11, 2012
this would look alot better if the vent in the front lip was open wider
Description: It's a darn shame that Toyota decided to put the A-Bat on the shelf indefinitely. The A-Bat had Hybrid Synergy Drive, a four-cylinder engine and a bed that could be extended from four to eight fe...

I'm waiting for this... Toyota/Scion, please build it.
Caner Ozdemir Mar 11, 2012
Pickups aren't meant to be "Sexy"
Paul Lissona Mar 11, 2012
Toyota doesn't need this dumb thing.
Mike Conrad Mar 11, 2012
This concept has been around a few years now
Matt Piccolo Mar 11, 2012
I love the ridge line but this just looks retarded and really, a 4 cylinder?? Come on
Sam Oglesby Mar 11, 2012
So which end is the front
Connor Wagner Mar 11, 2012
Just like the ridgeline
Description: The future of the Prius is looking slightly sexier thanks to the recently unveiled NS4. The NS4 is lighter than the Prius and would have a longer all-electric range coupled with a shorter charge time....

Still not liking that barn owl face front end.
Daniel Bramhall Mar 12, 2012
I've seen this in an article before
P_R_N_D Mar 12, 2012
its still better than a prius
Devin Babyn Mar 11, 2012
My only problem with this is they just put an Alfa Romeo hood and front end on it
Scott Gracey Mar 11, 2012
Yeah the headlights are what sold me as well
Devin Babyn Mar 11, 2012
Those headlights are so sick
Hektor Yberg Mar 11, 2012
That is f&@€$£g ugly!!!! I would rather drive a teacup or something!!!
Abraham Mendoza Mar 11, 2012
Looks like a hawk. Or a bird.
David Pires-Ihsaan Mar 11, 2012
if it wasn't a prius then you would like it ... im tired of people judging cars on brand names..
Alex Smith Mar 11, 2012
Still looks like a pile of shit.
Description: Even if none of these concepts ever become reality this custom Prius still proves that there's hope for the future. Elvis Haggbom and Kenny Kyrk are the masterminds behind this creation which fea...

I really like the body on a high rear glass hatchback. My only wish is that some manufacturer would have the brains or balls to build one with a fold down tailgate and electric rear window that exposes a hard truck-like bed like cargo. Something like this, but with no spare tire and a deep under cargo storage like the BMW X6. If they made this I'd trade my truck in and save a fortune in fuel eac...
Zach Pate Mar 19, 2012
Idk what's worse, the car, or the calculator the person used to take the picture.
Dale Schroeder Mar 13, 2012
So they took a car that uses batteries and electric power to be more efficient... and then stuffed it full of power hungry electronics. BRILLIANT!!
Brandon Whybrew Mar 11, 2012
did they eliminate the back doors to make it look cool? hahaha
Abraham Mendoza Mar 11, 2012
That's....pretty bad.
Matt Piccolo Mar 11, 2012
Wow... Uhh...that's.... Well... Interesting?
Chris Bridgers Mar 11, 2012
even ricers reject priuss...idk wat this is
Nick Schnee Mar 11, 2012
That guy needs a better cam.
Brandon Whybrew Mar 11, 2012
wow ricers won't go away.
