The Toyota FT-HS Hybrid Sports Concept

toyotaconceptWho says hybrid cars can’t be sleek and sexy too? Some call it a Prius which has been pumped up on steroids, but you cannot accuse the Toyota FT-HS Hybrid Sports Concept of being ugly, that is for sure.

Of course, by all rights, it is no longer just a concept. Indeed, it is the first sports car introduced by Toyota since the manufacturer dropped the popular Supra over ten years ago, in 1997.

With this concept car, Toyota wanted something that could develop four hundred horsepower. They wanted a hybrid sports car, and that is what they got — an eco friendly dream than can go from zero to sixty in approximately four seconds.

The engine? A 3.5 liter V6 full of thrust. It would be easy to develop — or simply find — an electric motor to help make up the rest.
