Rumoured Toyota Hybrid Sportscar is Prius-based

 />The thing that's always kept me from wanting a hybrid car is that they aren't all that fast. And the ones that are fast cost <a https://www.gizmodo.com.au/2008/11/what_it_feels_like_to_drive_a_tesla_roadster-2/too much money. That might change with Toyota’s MR2 Hybrid.


The rumoured MR2 Hybrid is said to be built around the Prius design, but would go 0-100 in under 7 seconds and come equipped with paddle shifters. Jalopnik thinks that the engine would be similar to the FT-HS’s 3.5-liter, V6 Hybridised innards from a few of years ago. The price? Supposedly it’s would only be around $US24,000. I think I’m starting to get hot flashes. [Auto Express via Jalopnik]
