One of the most interesting cars in 2012 and into 2013 has been the Scion FR-S and Subaru BRZ.
And while Subaru and Toyota are strong contenders in the supercar kingdom, the reality is that BMW brings a whole lot to the table as well.
So when we heard about the BMW and Toyota joint project we were, well, sort of shocked. First it was "WTF" then it was "Hmm."
As of now there's tons of speculation regarding what kind of motor, what kind of sports car and who will use who's motor. Nothing has been mentioned whatsoever, we just know the car has allegedly been under development for an extended period of time.
Until then, we can take a look at what an artist has come up with.
When BMW and Toyota announced their intention earlier this year to produce a jointly developed, midsize sports car, it took some industry watchers by surprise. You can certainly argue Toyota needs help building up its performance portfolio, but you can't say the same for the gang from Munich, which already has a garage full of Ultimate Driving Machines.
It all starts to make sense when you look closer at the budding BMW-Toyota tie-up, which began in late 2011. It's the sort of mutually beneficial relationship that is starting to become more commonplace in the industry...
