Default Toyota Le Mans Racer Could Inspire Hybrid Sports Car


Quote:
Is Toyota planning a new hybrid sports car? According to the man in charge of the automaker’s hybrid racing plans, it would seem so.

“My ultimate goal for the near future is to develop a hybrid sports car using technology accumulated through this project,” said Hisitake Murata, speaking in a video interview posted on the Toyota UK blog. Murata is the General Manager of the Racing Hybrid Project and the man responsible for the Toyota’s Le Mans prototype race cars.

“Our technologies are shared with the whole of Toyota Motor Company,” he continues, before envisioning a future Toyota sports car. “If we made a conventional sports car we could apply a super capacitor system or combine a super capacitor system and hybrid battery to achieve a similar braking performance,” he says.

Is this what is to live under the hood of the FT-1 production vehicle? That seems unlikely as previous reports stated that the Supra successor would be gas-powered.

Wink Zero Percent Auto

There are a lot of car dealership that offers a lot of zero percent interest on their cars but it's not what a lot of car owners think. There are still a lot of fees that needs to be payed before you can purchase a brand new car. No matter what there is, there is a catch, even on zero percent financing. The loan might be interest free, but shorter term meaning greater payments if you can qualify, that is. Know when to buy new car for you. If you need help with your expenses for your car, try availing an auto loan right now. You will be able to buy the car that you have always wanted to buy.
