The Toyota FT-Se is one of the many sports cars shown in prototype form at the recent Japan Mobility Show. The two seats with Gazoo Racing logos have aroused a lot of interest and some media, such as InsideEvs, managed to interview its designer to find out if its possibility for the street is on the right track. The answer is yes, as confirmed by Hideaki Iida the intentions of the Japanese manufacturer to bring this prototype to production for the second half of this decade.

Gradually, more details of the potential street variant are revealed, such as the target design of the engine, its possible rival and even plans for set a lap time on the Nürburgring. In fact, Toyota attaches great importance to the Green Hell, with one of the main goals of the FT-Se being to complete more than 20 kilometers of the German route in a good time, although the chief engineer of car – Fumihiko Hazama – did not reveal what time to beat: “Unfortunately, I can’t tell you what our target lap time is, but in the future we will take a prototype to the Nürburgring,” he told Top colleagues Gear.

However, Hazama pointed out New generation Porsche Cayman as one of its possible rivals Well, let’s remember that the 718 will be a 100% electric sports car. Due to the design of the FT-Se, it has been suggested that this car anticipates a kind of electric revival of the MR-2, although the Japanese two-seater is by no means a rival to the Porsche, so Toyota’s new creation may be more sophisticated.

All-wheel drive

While most of the objective details were not shared, Hazama suggested an acceleration time from 0 to 100 km/h in about three seconds and a top speed of almost 250 km/h. Those numbers should come from a dual-motor, all-wheel drive setup, unusual for a Toyota sports car but quickly becoming an industry standard for a high-performance electric vehicle. The Japanese engineer also assured that the body is made up of a mixture of aluminum, steel and carbon fiber reinforced plastic, with the aim of making it “light and rigid at the same time.”

Aside from final plans to go into production, the FT-Se is still awaiting a name, price range, and final design. That puts the prototype where the GR86 and fifth-generation Supra were first shown in concept form under the FT-HS and FT-1 designations in 2007 and 2014, respectively. Both took another five years to reach production, but the FT-Se timeline appears to be faster expected after 2026.
