A source familiar with the product plans of Toyota and Lexus confirmed to Motor Trend that the Toyota FT-1 concept essentially previews the next-gen BMW Z4 and an as yet unnamed Toyota coupe, possibly the next Supra.

The two cars will share a platform, but will be styled very differently. 

As we previously reported, Toyota's technical partnership with BMW will yield one sports car for each automaker, similar to the tie-up with Subaru that produced the FR-S and BRZ.
