Toyota’s FT-HS…keep this stuff coming!
We’ve got some momentum with these cars – let’s keep it going…honestly! This one is quite nice, while its not totally electric like the Tesla – it’s a great step forward. A hybrid sports car that doesn’t looks ridiculous – actually that’s a matter of opinion on this one, but I love the hard lines on this one. Not a huge amount to say on this without reading the article, which I just briefly read at the grocery store, but the main idea is that you have an amazingly fast (400bhp) hybrid, great design, some crazy interior treatments, and an interesting launch proposal. What makes the launch of this car interesting is that it would replace Toyota’s Supra (their relatively non-green flag-ship sports car) with a hybrid. They would be the first car company to do such a thing…good for them. I would prefer a totally electric sports car, but until the prices of batteries come down its going to be hard to convince someone with an entry-level Aston budget to get an exhaustless ride.
