It's not often the terms "Toyota" and "sexy" are thrown around together.

The company that's known for making such cars as the Camry and Corolla is usually associated with words like "sensible" and "reliable," but if the FT-1 concept reveals Toyota's future, then we might soon be seeing a racier side of the automaker.

Toyota unveiled the FT-1 at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit Monday. Though the car company hasn't yet said what will power the sleek sports car, they did say it is front-engined and has rear wheel drive, and its proportions certainly reflect that.
