I've seen this earlier today on Carscoops and it made me think. It really looks like it's straight out of the 90s, with the only thing giving it's modernity away being the lights. I wonder whether this is a running concept or just a clay model.

The proportions certainly suggest that it could be mid-engined.... Or perhaps the powertrain is electric or hydrogen?

A bit awkward from some angles, but it's a fun-looking car that's quirky w/o following the strange, grotesque trends of today (incl from other Toyota designs). I'd be interested in seeing this further developed.

probably some puny engine in the front and electric drive in the back or a hybrid system in the back who knows its not going to production unless BMW wants it

Not a clay model. I think it's even production ready.

It's scathingly ugly.

Whilst I usually like small cars and even more so small coupes and roadsters, this looks very weirdly proportioned. Like someone took a Mini Coupe and melted the rear end.

It is likely very aerodynamic though, probably some record Hybrid or EV?

Definitely there is no engine that fits in that front, unless is it absurdly small. I bet it is hydrogen, I don't think the proportions are right for a pure electric.
