The Downshift Episode 73 - Toyota FT-1 Concept!

On this episode of The Downshift, we talk with the designers of Toyota's new FT-1 concept, the car that could become the next Toyota Supra. The concept was designed by Calty Design Research who has been responsible for some of the Toyota brands most interesting designs including the FJ Cruiser concept, 2000 Celica and the Scion tC.

When I was in my early 20's, I remember how much I longed for a Supra, or even a Celica! Alas, I never got one, and had to console myself by occasionally borrowing a friends for an afternoon spin.  When Toyota stopped making them 15 or so years ago, I gradually forgot how much I loved them.  Until now.

HOLY HELL.  This is one sexy concept car.  That F1 inspired nose is amazing. The heads up display super next level....  I digress.
