The Future of Mobility,
as Imagined Three Decades Ago by Toyota
Concept cars that are displayed at motor shows represent contemporary automobile engineers’ ideas about the future of mobility.
The technologies and design features incorporated into earlier concept cars were well ahead of their time. They still look novel; yet they now strike us as evocatively familiar, too.
In this exhibition, we present the concept cars that Toyota exhibited at the Tokyo Motor Show around 1990, together with some commercial models that followed.
Learning about the concept cars designed three decades ago—and understanding how their futuristic visions played out—may help us in our own attempt at foreseeing the future of mobility.
