Alas, unfortunately, this time around the example we see in the gallery and neatly embedded below is merely wishful thinking. Besides, it only vaguely resembles the classic front mid-engine, rear-wheel-drive, two-door, two-seat grand tourer. Instead, what we are dealing here with is a proper revival, albeit only a digital, double bubble-topped one.
And it stems courtesy of the imagination of Czech Republic-based virtual artist Rostislav Prokop, better known as rostislav_prokop on social media, who is keen to discuss our vintage JDM dreams while he continues the imagined periplus alongside HotCars. Well, in between Boss 429 Mustangs, Plymouth Road Runners, Supra Mk4s, Countach, and Corvette Sting Rays that look just like virtual restomod cannon fodder, this 2000GT sure is a welcomed change of pace.
This time around, we are dealing with a proper modern reinvention, just as it happened with the crimson Audi Quattro, and there is a modern styling on top of the classic 2000GT DNA, which is most visible from the rear, not necessarily the front. Alas, the one thing that is completely missing from the description is also the most important one – a hint regarding the potential oomph tucked under the hood.
Well, I am already dreaming of yet another Toyota-Yamaha collaboration that could top their 4.8-liter 1LR-GUE even-firing V10 work done for the Lexus LFA!
