Behind the design of the Toyota FT-1 concept

January 13, 2014 - 12:01 am ET
The inner sanctum of an automaker's design studio is as classified as a top-secret government spy shop. Many top executives from the car company itself aren't allowed inside, much less civilians or the media. But Toyota Motor Corp. allowed Automotive News unparalleled, exclusive access inside its Calty Design Studio in Newport Beach, Calif., to witness and track the development of the FT-1 concept sports car. Over the past six months, Automotive News veteran West Coast Editor Mark Rechtin has chronicled the development of this concept car. He spent days interviewing the key players in the development of the car. He provides an inside look at the FT-1's design process with a 14-minute documentary film filled with exclusive interviews and footage.
