Toyota will officially launch the Land Cruiser 200series there and i would hope to c a facelift Land Cruiser Prado there too.<p>Im interested about this Xone (Ipsum replacement) as the Ipsum was sold in Europe and Australia as the Avensis Verso.... so this Xone could come to Australia with a different name... if its good looking i hope it does.<p>If they reveal a Supra... ill be very happy, coz they really need a sports car in their global range<p>Im sure theyll also have a concept or two... but i hope its of somethin upcoming and not somethin thatll never be seen for the next 10years.<p>Maybe lexus will have the GS460 there and the production version of the IS-F. Maybe even a concept of the IS-coupe-convertible or next RX.<p>Im looking forward to seeing all the others u mentioned... especially the Mazda6 and Honda Accord (if its the Euro version)<p>Im expecting this show to be big now theyre only doing it every 2years (which suxs) and its also gonna sux as the show is after the Australian Motor Show... meaning any car revealed at Tokyo want be at the AIMS

dont forget the EVO X...and I would assume subaru would launch the STi there, if anywhere.

07-07-2007, 10:06 AM
Honda Accord is a same body for global also japan,europe,america,asia and another not a separated region version.

It looks like somebody finally somebody posted something here after my last post in mid-April of this year! <br>Tokyo looks to have some nice debuts this season, from what I see here.

07-09-2007, 01:51 PM
The EVO-X will debut at the LA autoshow so it does not compete with the GTR.

07-09-2007, 01:54 PM
I thought it would be Frankfurt...

I'm a bit disappointed reading that the upcoming Acura NSX will not premiere in Tokyo '07. It's another ride I was very much looking forward to see, V10 and all! I suppose we'll have to wait a bit longer and perhaps it will be a surprise release somewhere else. It could be possible that we can see official shots prior to a debut; I won't rule that out.

i just read an article we wont see this on the roads until like 2010 (2011 in america) because they would need to debut at tokyo i guess and the next tokyo show isnt until 2009...all i can say is that for all the waiting theyre making us do it better be the damn best supercar this world will ever see.

It seems like there will be a lot of interesting new models introduced in this upcoming Tokyo Autoshow. I can't wait for it.

2nd Gen Honda Fit/Jazz will debut as well.

08-04-2007, 03:58 PM
Audi will reveal the A1 at the Tokyo Motor Show... not the Frankfurt Motor Show.<p>The A1 thats going to be revealed will be a hybrid version.<p><A HREF="http://www.worldcarfans.com/8070803.004/audi-a1-to-debut-in-tokyo" TARGET="_blank">http://www.worldcarfans.com/80...tokyo</A>

Yes and it will be called T1 at Tokyo.

Is it a concept name or somethin

Tokyo1 maybe?

08-05-2007, 06:30 PM
T stands for Tokyo and 1 for A1.

08-05-2007, 06:36 PM
I was thinking that.... but thought y would they do that when they can just call it A1... must be a reason behind it, like it being the first Audi theyve revealed world wide in Tokyo (thats just a guess... i dont know if it is)

i couldve sworn they debuted the Shooting Brake there (name on the tip of my tongue). if you are using the logic of calling the concept what the production model would be then why not call the CrossCoupe Quattro the Q3?

08-06-2007, 03:30 AM
In the case of the CrossCoupe Quattro... that is exactly what the concept is... so there is a link between the name and the car... If they gave this A1 concept a name that indicated what it would be/is... then to me that makes more sense then calling it T1....<p>Im over it anywayz... just wonna c what itll look like.

add Mitsubishi's concepts to the list as well. The i MiEV Sport and Concept ZT will also debut at the Tokyo Show. the Concept cX will also be present, but it will debut at Frankfurt.<p><A HREF="http://www.automotto.org/entry/mitsubishi-to-showcase-three-concepts-at-tokyo" TARGET="_blank">http://www.automotto.org/entry...tokyo</A>/<p>Edit: Messd it up.

Seems like a little tokyo-trend to me - let's use the empty sides of the bumpers for some funny detailing<p><IMG SRC="http://img48.imageshack.us/img48/9510/tokyota1.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><I>f.l.t.r.: Nissan, Nissan, Subaru, Subaru, Lexus, Suzuki, Mazda</I>

It's not only Japan that has "detailing" on the far sides of the front and rear fascias. Every manufacturer has them on some or all of their cars. Often times it's better than leaving an ugly, misshapen empty bumper anyway.<p>You should also consider that many of these "details" are air dams and intakes are usually positioned behind them.

Has there been any more word or indication of <A HREF="http://www.autospider.org/index.php/2007/09/19/2007-tokyo-motor-show-preview-mazdas-rotary-coupe" TARGET="_blank">this supposed concept by Mazda</A> that was supposed to be unveiled at the Tokyo Show? It could have just been a wild rumor, but even so, it looks fantastic from those illustrations. Seems rather like a Kabura-inspired RX-7.<p>There's been a lot of talk of a genuine two-seat two-door sports coupe from Mazda. I'm certainly inclined to agree that the article might just be wild speculation, but has there been any other news on it?<BR><BR>

they announced another concept for NAIAS<p>"Company officials say this concept will be the most realistic yet, hinting<br>that this concept will be more likely to make it to production."<br><A HREF="http://www.worldcarfans.com/9071023.012/2008-naias-debuts-announced" TARGET="_blank">link</A><p>I think it's actually the <i>real</i> fourth concept and the Taiki was just made to have something wild for Tokyo.
