Does anybody know what future plans Scion has for the tC, or any other models for that matter? What are the rumors you've heard?

Besides the TRD supercharger, I havn't heard much of anything about the tC. I am not really following the xA or xB because they don't really do anything for me. (The xB is a sexy box though)

I heard they might do a turbo in the tC but that was EXTREMELY hear-say. I don't know why they would offer a supercharged AND turbo version of the same car.

Turbo mag has been doing a project tC Turbo though, and I'm interested in seeing what kind of numbers it can put down.

What would the turbo do compared to the supercharger?

A turbo may produce more HP in the long rung but it wouldn't be good for stop and go driving, it would definitly cost more, and to much piping. The supercharger produces horsepower more quickly than a turbo.

Yeah, gotta watch out for turbo lag.

i only know a limited amount about turbos... if it was a twin turbo would they kick in at different times (one sooner than the other) so you wouldnt notice the lag?

probably not but i thought id throw that out their.

usually a twin turbo is setup sequentially (one kicking in later) usually.

it does not eliminate lag though, because the first turbo still takes time to spool.

Thanks for the info, SWFLATC. When I talked to the Scion salesperson, he said that there was already a waiting list for all the tCs but one; and by judging by all the good reviews and good talk about the tCs, I think this car will sell very well. If it does sell very well then would they actually discontinue the tCs after a few years? Or will they create a new, better model which will replace the tC?

the turbo from trd (or an outside contractor) is still questionable, though i do have a turbo boost gauge pre-listed as an eventually available accessory for the tC. now why would you need a turbo boost gauge if there wasnt a turbo coming enventually to match it with? as for turbo lag, the new 'chargers are more efficient, but the problem certainly does exist. a supercharger is still my personal preference for japanese 4 bangers. besides, if you dont drag your ride, top speed isnt necessary very often. i want to get to up to speed coming out of tight corners, so i can get to the next tight corner faster. i want my power immediately. but everyone has their own style. there are positives and negatives to both systems. my $.02
