Toyota FT-HS (Cars)

The Toyota FT-HS is a hybrid sports car concept introduced at the 2007 (11 years ago) North American International Auto Show. Calty Design Research designed the concept and suggests that it could fill the place of the Toyota Supra. FT-HS stands for Future Toyota Hybrid Sport.

The goal of the rear wheel drive hybrid powertrain is to produce 400 hp (300 kW) and achieve 0-60 mph in around 4 seconds. This is accomplished by combining a 3.5 L V6 and an electric motor in a manner similar to the Lexus GS450h. Unlike the GS (and virtually all other current hybrids), a production version of the FT-HS would make use of a capacitor system designed specifically for quick charging and increased performance. Since the debut of this concept, Toyota has exhibited such technology in the Supra HV-R race car.

The 2+2 vehicle features a unique retractable roof similar to a targa top. The rear seats would be folded down when the roof is retracted however.

In spite of the FT-HS being only a concept vehicle, Toyota's desired starting price for such a vehicle is stated to be in the mid $30,000 range.

According to Automobile Magazine, Toyota is planning to launch a production version of the vehicle in 2009 (9 years ago). Toyota has yet to make an official announcement. An Aug. 2008 (10 years ago) article from Automotive News indicated that a production version was no longer being considered. However, a Jan. 2009 (9 years ago) article from Edmunds Inside Line states that "the V6 Supra replacement is still in the pipeline and is set for an early 2011 (7 years ago) debut".
