Recently, Toyota president Akio Toyoda was saying that “if the FT-1 makes a good strong impression on the market, then we will add it to the line-up.” However, the automaker knew the concept will make a hit after unveiling, as rumor is that the new sportscar is already on the drawing board.

A source close to Toyota told that the FT-1 will surely give birth to a new sportscar. Its entry level version is expected to be powered by a 2-liter turbocharged gasoline engine, while the performance version will come with 2.5-liter V6 hybrid powertrain and a transaxle, making more than 400 hp.
