The FT-HS or Future Toyota Hybrid Sports, was originally shown at Detroit's auto show in January. It is described as a concept of "the sports car of the 21st century." The FT-HS is a front-engine, rear-wheel-drive sports car with a "projected" 0-62-mph acceleration in the 4-second range. Toyota says the FT-HS "shows the potential of hybrid technology."
