After the global economic collapse, compounded by a spate of major recalls and a general lack of new product, Toyota Motor Corporation has today announced a new Global Vision that puts the focus on developing the brand in emerging markets, while injecting more passion into its cars. Toyota also intends to continue to grow its strengths in building reliable and efficient cars, listing key focal points such as: quality, constant innovation, respect for the planet, and the idea that there is always a better way.

"All 300,000 of us at Toyota worldwide will take part in laying a foundation for sustainable growth," said company President Akio Toyoda. "Working side by side, we will strive to earn smiles by exceeding customers' highest expectations. Together, we will write a new chapter of Toyota history."

Specific to new products, Toyota is putting the priority on "product appeal," ranking it even ahead of building environmentally responsible cars in its new plan. Toyota aims to build "genuinely exciting models" and "greatly improve the design and feel" of its cars.

I'm glad to hear this from Toyota. The 90's were probably the best time to buy a Toyota or Lexus, they had so many amazing vehicles such as the Supra, SC300/400, Camry, Corolla, GS and LS. Proof is up until today these cars from the 90's still exist and are running strong. Actually, 1/2 of these cars were far ahead of their time. Not sure what happened with Toyota within the past 8 years, but it seems to me we can expect that 90's era of Toyota/Lexus cars to repeat it's self this time around....Hopefully.

a lot stuff I read on the net, say the Lexus LFA is the Toyota Supra replacement.

and some say the Scion FT-86 is a Supra replacement. seems like u know a bit about Toyota/Lexus.

Do u think Scion has a Supra under the name of FT-86?

Finally Toyota is creating exciting cars again. i though they had lost it all with, almost every car in their line up being a boring bland car with no excitement. With a there eco box corolla, a confused matrix, and other cars that Toyota, just seems plain boring..

I mean there is the Venza that has potential but everything bleh.

its nice to see the FT-86 and bring back exciting cars, finally something that's not an econ box =]
