Toyota FT-HS Gets the Green Light

2007 Toyota FT-HS Concept - Side ViewThe Toyota FT-HS concept that drew a lot of praise has the green light from Toyota to go into production. With any luck, Toyota will change the name to something less, well, awful, than FT-HS. Something like, say, Supra. Just a name off the top of my head, you know.

The FT-HS is a little loud, style-wise, but knowing Toyota, they’ll tone it down some for production. From a performance standpoint, this car can absolutely live up to the Supra legend, even though it won’t be powered by a turbocharged straight six.

In case you’ve forgotten, here’s a quick rundown on the proposed specs of the FT-HS.

  • 3.5 liter DOHC V6
  • Hybrid powertrain
  • Combined 400+ HP
  • 0-60 in the mid four second range.
  • 30+ MPG
  • 2+2 seating
  • $30,000-$40,00 target price
