I’m not certain I have a solid grip on reality as it exists in 2014. To me, the dividing line where real life ends and the virtual world begins seems to have blurred to a point that I can no longer clearly distinguish.

That feeling was emphasised on Monday when Toyota pulled the surprise of the Detroit motor show by unveiling a striking new concept, the FT-1, which some industry experts believe points towards a revival of the Supra nameplate.

Toyota stopped short of confirming that, although it did reference the Supra and the 2000GT during the presentation, so it doesn’t require a rocket scientist to work out where the Japanese manufacturer is heading.

Also during the reveal, it was announced that the Toyota FT-1 would be available in downloadable virtual form on Gran Turismo 6 driving game on the PlayStation from Tuesday.
