    Concepts somewhat at this point but it looks like Toyota does not want to be left behind.

    From Core 77, a great Industrial Design website.

    midengine is supposed to be 1 liter, but 660cc of honda s660 is maximum displacement for kei car classification for tax breaks in japan, and not sure how they can sell small engine for a sports car. toyota had patent on freepiston so that maybe be the way to makeup for small displacement and renualt said theyd put a smaller battery bigger engine version of nissan note nismo e power drievtrain in alpine a110 but its been long time no update.

    electric battery recyling doesnt happen and heavy weight costs road repairs in emissions and tax money, and production costs too. aptera is lightweight and handmade (besides electronics etc), so aptera is arguably better than the small turbo 1 liter which will probably not be small production to the point of being as much handmade, 0-60 will probably be nothing under 6 seconds despite maybe weight vantage of this toyota, not sure if theyll care enough to pay for a special non electric steering or expensive special system that other cars probably dont have and currently dont have.

    semitruck, modular multipurpose “amazon van” and side by sides are probably the only other type of car/tucks worth building, especially assuming their high budget for sake of lasting for as logn as possible in a future of delivery services, dense living areas, ridesharing including pay per use cars, two parent workers per household needing to go different 9-5 places at same time, given even today most of space in car is rarely used and two 2 seaters can act as 1 single 4 seater too by one car using selfdriving software to closely follow the car with driver in it.

    i guess if they wanted they could convince people to no longer value those other cars no profit loss with price control “gentlemens agreement” as japanese corperations did do for sports cars long time ago. they can also charge for luxury stuff including non software and personalization aesthetics pieces that can be switched out in and even outside the car ex. wood texture on driver side but leather for passenger side, etc. maybe they could charge per use with cars sold today like tesla said.
