You,and that’s okay, because you deserve a car that starts every time, a camry, or a prius. that being said, toyota wanted to be hot. it was time for toyota to go back to school in swerve city. in 2007, toyota showed off a concept they hoped would get them back on the right track. it was called the fths concept. it . Wasa front engine, rearwheel drive car powered by a hybrid v6 powertrain, and it kinda looks the gt86 that we know today, but honestly, not really. the bones were there, though. and then, in 2008, toyota bought a $311 million stake in fuji heavy industries. fuji was the parent company of one of toyota’s .

Nowat first it .
Wasreported that subaru and toyota were gonna develop an . Suv,but remember, toyota wanted to be hot, and suvs are not hot. subaru pitched a bunch of collab ideas to toyota, and one of them was a . Sportscar, and toyota agreed, with one stipulation. it had to be .
Rearwheeldrive. the man toyota chose to lead the project was a 20year veteran of the company named tetsuya tada. now, he had dreamed of building a sports car since he first arrived at toyota, but had since spent his time as a chassis engineer on a lot of their . Lesshot products. but when tetsuya’s boss, toyota vp akio toyoda called him into his office, mr. toyoda laid out . Hisvision. “tetsuya, i want you to give me a sports car. “one with no limits. “you can do whatever . Youwant.” and the first thing he did was call up his friend and chassis engineer yoshinori sasaki. “dude, you are never gonna believe “what the boss wants me to do, man.” “scratch his back?” “what?” “mow his lawn?” “dude, no. “he wants me to design a freakin’ sports car, dude!” “what?” “and i want you to” “give you a .

Aresult, toyota sat on the . Projectfor . Sixmonths, but after some of the bosses drove a prototype that the team had built, apparently it blew their freakin’ minds off, and they allowed the project to continue. that’s bold. chapter two: how they built it. the team looked through toyota’s family .
