'The Big T' is back. Toyota dealers are selling 86 coupes faster than they can build them, and the carmaker has confirmed it will develop a new sports platform with German giant BMW.

Yes, a new golden era of exciting Toyota cars is here. Or at least, it's coming, and today's new FT-1 Sports Coupe Concept is another glimpse of what lies around the next bend.

Officially conceived for the new Gran Turismo Vision video game, the FT-1 joins a slew of powerfully styled concepts developed by the likes of Mercedes-Benz, Honda, Subaru, Volkswagen and its own Lexus brand.

Toyota says the FT-1 is a design study only, but its name - which means "Future Toyota - Ultimate" - suggests there might be more to this particular coupe concept.

Could we be looking at an early preview of Toyota's take on its platform partnership with BMW? Is this our first look at the spiritual successor to the legendary Supra?

“Our team was heavily influenced by Toyota’s sports car past, especially Celica and Supra, and we sought to capture some of that history," said Alex Shen, Calty’s Studio Chief Designer. "It is an aggressive, track-focused sports car concept with a presence that has been amplified for shock and awe"

Toyota isn't saying anything about a showroom debut, of course.

But, while production plans for the 2007 FT-HS concept were brought undone by the global financial crisis, rivals like the Nissan GT-R and Honda's coming NSX have ensured that Toyota is ready to get back in the ring.

As for what's driving the FT-1... nothing. Toyota says the big coupe is a rolling concept only, although it envisions "a high-technology, high performance internal combustion engine".

If the FT-1 goes into production, we suspect you'd also see a good amount of hybrid technology in the mix.

Whatever Toyota is planning, it is clear that fans at last have reason to rejoice. 'The Big T' is back.
