This is where beauty meets brains. At our Calty Design Research facilities in Ann Arbor, Oakland and Newport Beach, some of the most innovative minds in the automotive industry are creating bold and innovative exterior and interior designs for everything from cutting-edge Lexus concept vehicles like the 2012 Lexus LF-LC to our halo 2020 Toyota Supra.
While the Ann Arbor, Michigan design studio works closely together with engineers at the Toyota Technical Center on North American production trucks and cars like the rugged 2016 Tacoma and the all-new 2021 Sienna, the California’s Newport Beach studio works on advanced and experimental designs such as the exciting 2014 FT-1, the futuristic 2017 Concept-i and the expressive 2018 Lexus LF-1 Limitless. The Oakland, California studio called the Toyota Innovation Hub focuses on improving the human mobility experience. Calty Design Research has contributed to the design of 55 production models – from the 1978 Celica to the 1997 Prius and on to the 2021 Sienna. With more than 100 team members and a $7.9 million investment, Calty designers have helped to create over 125 production, concept and NASCAR vehicles.
