okay, remember back when i mentioned that the replacement for the tC will most likely be a rally inspired sedan?
rumors are hitting the press for MY09 already. and the Scion xR is one of them, listed as a 4 door rally inspired vehicle.
now, lets see where that goes.

1962 Ford F100
2013 Subaru Imprezza Sport


Racing FWD is like banging your sister. It may be fun, but it's wrong.

To be honest with you iGod.... the meeting we had with CATD and a few of the higher-ups this past weekend puts that statement well within reach.... a man we will call Mike stated in terms of launching new Scions: "Our goal is to have four vehicles and then each year launching new ones". Meaning once they get to four vehicles... the 1st would be ready to phase out & launch it's replacement, the next year the same with the 2nd vehicle, and so on & so on.

We were also told that the next gen tC will have many styling cues taken from the FUSE.

Do you think it will have a decent engine to back it up? I am just hoping it doesnt turn out to be a faux-racer like the Lancer.

Evo is as much a Lancer as STI is an Impreza and RZ is a Supra.

I know but what I was saying is that I hope it had a decent engine and doesnt end up like the Lancer. The Lancer is an underpowered version of a great car. I dont want the xR to suck.
