With electric versions of the Audi R8 and Mercedes-Benz SLS on the horizon, Toyota is looking for its own electric halo vehicle to bring the fight to the Germans, similar to how the Japanese automaker did with their Lexus LF-A flagship.
With electric motors at all four wheels and selectable driving programs, the Toyota mimics the German’s layout, but aesthetic details are still murky. One thing we can be sure of is that Toyota’s new partner in crime, Tesla Motors, would be enlisted to help with the project, thanks to their experience with the Tesla Roadster.
Let’s hope that Toyota’s EV project won’t take them another decade to complete, similar to the LF-A.
