Default Hyper Ultra-Hybrid Sport Car for you !

New Toyota's Hyper-Ultra-Performance, Super Sport Hybrid for you !


In 1800, Alessandro Volta arranged zinc and copper discs in a column and invented the battery.

204 years later, Toyota has electrified automotive history with the first high-performance hybrid, named in his honor.

The Giugiaro-designed carbon-fiber body seats three people abreast and features "drive-by-wire" controls,

allowing you to position the steering wheel and pedals in front of any one of them.
And the Volta's 408-hp Hybrid Synergy Drive® (a 3.3-liter V6 with an electric motor for each axle) not only delivers 435 miles on a 13.7-gallon tank, but 0-60 acceleration in a mere four seconds. Somewhere, Count Volta is smiling.

Now this is the Sport Car. I'm selling my 97 Twin-turbo 6 speed Supra for this one ! Any takers out there ?

I wouldn't give up my Prius for anything. But I'd sure love to see some pics of this vehicle.

Hello Victor, Who says ? I think the Hybrid Super cars are coming ! Is not just a concept but shwroom ready very soon. Toyota does not have had the "Halo" Flag ship High Performance Sport Car since the demise of the formidable "Twin Turbo 6 Speed Supra" sport car that were the standard for performance Sports car builders to follow in those days.....Toyota needs a Halo car.. Not just any Super Sports car but a HSC such as; HybridSportsCar.
Nissan came out with the "Z" .... Toyota will bring out the "Hybrid Sports Car" my 2 cents on that ! I hope Toyota will use the new F1 format smaller displacement high revving V8 as the ICE instead of the V6. But again the V6 platform in conjunction with HSD are already in place so will be prudent to predict for Toyota to gain cost advantage... Using the already existing V6 in its upcoming HSC ( Hybrid SuperSports Car. )

Hello Victor, Who says ? I
Toyota.

The Volta was shown as a concept car about 2 years ago. Search here and on prius chat, if its sill archived. http://www.automobilemag.com/auto_sh...s_toyotavolta/


There is also a concept 2 seater, looks a bit like the Frog eyed sprint of eons ago. Its on the Toyota DE website under concepts.

There is an all electric sports car called Fetish made by a French company. That (i think) is available now.

Toyota killed the MR-2 and the Celica, here in the States due to sales dwindling down every 6 months. till they stop importing them. However they are going to bring the HSC be it Lexus bound first or Toyota brands
but definately on the build agenda table !

Yes the MR2 and the Celica are gone unfortunately. This is the norm for the MR2 which has always been a limited run car, Im surprised the latest MR2 was built for so long.

There have been reports that the Toyota "Priapus" would be built, the link above is an example, but these can all be traced back to a hoax article which is also the first mention of the name "Priapus". No car maker would produce a car with such a name due to the meaning of the word!

Title: well...
Comment: Ok I found out this thing was a hoax a couple of days ago (I had seen the original glossynews.com article on fark.com) And I zealously inquired about it. But here's the funny part, the dealership in San Diego took two weeks to finally give me an answer about this car (since their supervisors, managers, and toyota corp had nothing to say.) But what they told me is that it will initially only go on sale in Italy to see the demand. Sounded a lil fishy to me too but its what Kearny Mesa Toyota told me.

I suggest inquiring with your own local dealers and pushing them to call up Toyota HQ. See if you get the same response.
Its interesting to note that some articles say it will be released Spring 2005 in Italy, others say fall 2005 Germany (It hasnt been, I live in Germany). Prices have also ranged fro $56,000 to $150,000.

Of course if you have an official Toyota/Lexus press release you can scan and e-mail me, I will be off to my dealer to order one the next day.

I wont hold my breath waiting.
