Whatís a Scion tD? Allow us to explain. Scion is on the press conference schedule for the 2009 New York Auto Show. And with the way things are going in the industry these days, even Toyota isnít going to pay up to have a press conference for the xB 11.0 Special Edition.

Hopefully it's not another "concept".

I don't understand why they'd have to change the base name.
There can be different generations of tC, like there is a Golf I, II, III, IV, V, VI... not sure which number they're at now.
Scion 2005 to 2009 were still tC I. They could just arrive with the tC II.
Why tD? tD sounds like turboDiesel...

Yes, maybe Toyota/Scion needs a higher end Coupe, with all these G37, 370Z, RX8, S2000, Genesis on the market...
They need a 300 hp Coupe in the $30K price range.

EDIT: And make it a hard top convertible could be sweet and would allow them to differentiate... just a thought.

True. I had forgotten about this Toyobaru.

Most companies can't afford to stop all investments.
Because you must be ready to launch stuff when the economy turns around.
It means you need to develop them while you're in the downturn.

Personally, I believe we're starting to see the end of the tunnel.
A good bull market, Citi Group up 200% in 2 weeks...
Bank stocks had started the mess, they're the first ones out.

Building a 30k plus 300hp car is about the opposite of what Scion is aimed at. I would say that is NOT what they need for this badge. I would love for toyota to make something like that, I just dont see it being placed under the Scion brand (would be cool, but improbable).

As far as those pics are concerned... they are hideous IMO. But I am sure some would like it...
