The Toyota Supra is back! Well…not really, but Toyota basically blew the doors off its hall in Detroit this morning by unveiling this – the FT-1 concept.

Standing for ‘Future Toyota’, the FT-1 hails a more exciting future for Toyota which has promised to stop building “boring cars”.

Toyota is desperate to appeal to a younger audience (the type who grew up on computer games and social media), with the FT-1 the first attempt.

The catch? Sadly, despite its striking looks – which many hope could hint at a potential Supra successor – Toyota has no plans to put the FT-1 into production.

No word on engines or performance either, but with those provocative Lexus LFA-inspired curves and interior, it’s clear Toyota’s vision for the future is on the right track.

What if Subaru made a new Brumby?

Subaru has said it has no plans to return to the Brumby, but what if the new Hyundai Santa Cruz and Ford Maverick utes were just too much to ignore..?
