Toyota 2000GT SEV in the UK for Goodwood Festival of Speed

Is Toyota developing an electric sports car to rival the Tesla Roadster?

An appearance of the Toyota 2000GT SEV at the Goodwood Festival of Speed has sparked rumors of Toyota "going after Tesla" with an electric sports car.

A rumor is circulating that Toyota is developing an electric sports car that could rival the Tesla Roadster. While that's a curious claim considering that Toyota owns a chunk of Tesla Motors, the company did develop the Crazy Project Car (an electric Toyota 2000GT SEV), and signed an agreement with BMW to work on several chunks of technology, that may include an electric sports car. Coincidentally, at around the time Toyota and BMW signed the agreement, the Toyota 2000GT SEV made an appearance at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, in the UK.
