The 43rd annual 2013 Tokyo Motor Show will be held this year from November 20th to December 1st and naturally, Toyota will be a big player at their hometown auto show.

Under the slogan "Fun to Drive, Again", these concept vehicles will show the company's future vision to bring the joy back into driving a Toyota. The concepts include a groundbreaking next-generation fuel-cell vehicle, a compact sports hybrid vehicle, and the "FT-86 Open concept", which is a convertible version of the popular rear-wheel drive Scion FR-S (known as the FT-86 outside of the US).
