So I got to the mail box today and there was my new R&T there waiting for me, I open it up and what do i see but this article.
[/color] Toyota will soon introduce a hybrid SUV based o the Lexus RX300. And we hear that it will set the stage for Toyotas next big hybrid project, a sports car. It makes perfect sense for Toyota, a global leader in hybrid technology, to create a sports car with a hybrid twist. The new-wave Toyota 2+2 (below) is rumored to produce at least 300 bhp, sending power to all four wheels, using a similar system incorporated into the RX 330. The CC&S concept car displayed at the Geneva auto show was apparently a tease. Rated at only 145 bhp, the CS&S was created to gauge public opinion of a possible hybrid sports car. The reaction from the media and public was good, so Toyota may have decided to go forward with the program. This 300-bhp hybrid sports car would fill the void left by the Supra a few years. Ago. SM
