Interesting perspective. I don't think the hip hip community is going to flock to it if it comes out, but I could be wrong. Then there is the advertising approach by Scion, and they have always used hip hop / urban themes. The radio stations that they use for the big events (Scion Night, Exprescion) are hip hop stations, the acts they book are DJs and MCs and hip hop groups. It would be strange to see that happen, and I won't count it out. Tell you what, if it comes out I won't have them in stock for a long time. We will go back to an order basis like the first year and a half of the tC unless they launch it with a bunch already produced and ready to ship fast. That car would cross demographic lines like crazy.

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

Yes, there is a 09MY planned. No changes from the 08MY.

I will say this though - the wife and I were looking at Celicas. She wanted one. We saw the tC completely by accident. We bought the tC. It's a much better all around car than the Celica for a lot of reasons. The rest is, as they say, history.



The one hiding in the back is here:

Emotional Arguments - they're not just for chicks anymore.

Most performance mods need a watch and timed course to demonstrate actual improvement. Few deliver the advertised claims. Many are actually worse than stock. The best performance mods are made to the driver.

Look at your comment, now back to mine. Now back at your comment now back to mine. Sadly it isn't mine, but if you stopped trolling and started posting legitimate posts it could look like its mine. Look down, back up, where are you? You're scrolling through comments, writing the comment your comment could look like. What did you post? Back at mine, it's a reply saying something you want to hear. Look again the reply is now diamonds. Anything is possible when you think before you post.

Well the new tC here might be marketed in the rest of the world as the Toyota Celica. Which could be good or bad depending on your few point. Though I doubt it will be an AWD or RWD car. I have a friend who is still involved with TMS, and Toyota Marketing when they killed the MR-2 sypder and Celica they got alot of angry mail. The fact was that they just were not selling. fast foward a few years people still want the mr2 the tC took away the celicas market but the rest of the world doesnt have the tC. So my friend happened to make a comment about this subject the other night. and said basically do not be surprised if the rest of the world get the tC badged under the celica nameplate. This new car would be slightly larger and compete with the 2.5 altima coupe.


I heard from Toyota Lexus Scion (TLS) and correct me if I got this wrong. I heard that the Scion tC might come with a 2.5 V6 Dual vvti and about 200hp. Not to long ago Toyota fitted a 3.5 V6 on their Toyota Blade (Matrix in the US) and it fitted perfectly, and it seem to TLS (What I've been told from TLS) that Toyota might take this same V6 route on the Scion tC but with the 2.5 V6 in FWD form.

What Toyota need is to have an rwd coupe, and needs to be in their Scion brand just for pricing purposes, because Hyundai is coming out strong with their Genesis coupe, starting below $20,000, two choices of egines, 2.5 I4 turbo 220 hp and a 3.8 V6 310hp. And I believe you can switch to regular gas but hp will be sacrifice a little, I think they called this swill. This Genesis coupe not only reminds me of my teen video games years, but also reminds me of the yellow Toyota coupe that was shown on the begining of the post. Hyundai grew pretty fast and is still growing, Toyota will have to stop them before we all end up Driving Hyundai's, and this website becomes yourgenesiscoupe.com not!
