While the new FT-1 Concept car was specially designed for the new Gran Turismo 6 racing game, we have a strange feeling that it previews the new-generation Supra . In fact, Toyota announced that the concept car previews the company’s future design language, meaning that a new sports car may be right around the corner.
The new concept car is named the FT-1 and the name was explained as follows: FT stands for "Future Toyota," and the number "1" represents the ultimate. According to Toyota, the design team started to work on this new concept car about two years ago, and it’s pretty clear that it is a continuation of the FT-HS launched in 2007, with some design elements taken from the 2012 Lexus LF-LC .
The concept was designed by the Calty design team and comes just in time to celebrate the team’s 40th anniversary. It was officially unveiled at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show .
Updated 08/14/2014: Toyota unveiled a second version of the FT-1 Concept, this time featuring a graphite exterior paint and a new interior with natural leather on the seat combined with brown edges.
