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 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]
