Hmm I question this a lot of reasons:

- No official news from Toyota lately regarding this car.
- If it set to release late 2015 as a 2016 model, I would think Toyota would have introduced something at the Detroit show as to what the production would look like.
- No test mules have been spotted at all EXCEPT the BMW version (which who knows if it has to do anything with the Toyota project)
- No info on where this came from (not even saying an 'inside source' provided this) not that it would give it much more credit but you get the point

Nice find though, it's the latest thing we do hear about this. But besides that if it is TRUE, priced at $100k for a 4 cylinder + turbo + HYBRID or not even if they name it Supra. count me out for that price alone but even at $60k I may be looking else where.

This doesn't seem completely legit. I didn't realize that they were even selling this in this form. Pretty sure we have yet to see something in production form.

DETROIT, MI - Infiniti reveals the new Q60 Concept to the media at the 2015 North American International Auto Show January 13, 2015 in Detroit, Michigan. More than 5000 journalists from around the word will see approximately 45 new vehicles unveiled. The 2015 NAIAS opens to the public January 17th and concludes January 25th. (Photo by Bill Pugliano/Getty Images)
The re-incarnation of the Ford GT and Acura NSX swept the stage at the North American International Auto Show this week, leaving some stellar machines including the Toyota FT-1, Infiniti Q60, Maserati Alfieri and Lexus GSF to escape detection, until now.

Toyota’s FT-1 concept was created for PlayStation’s Gran Turismo drivers, but was too hot for the company to leave on digital streets alone.

The 2016 version of the spiritual successor to the legendary Supra sports a turbocharged 2.0-liter inline 4, complimented by two electric motors for a combined 450 horsepower and 480 pound-feet of torque. Capable of hitting 60 m.p.h. in less than 4 seconds, the “Future Toyota” caps out at a top speed of 180 m.p.h.

The FT-1 is expected to ship in late 2015 and price around $100,000.
