By the way, it looks like a grill to me on that Scion. Still nice though.

This is info from speed magazine. There was a post about it on some new celica sites. Just run the engine code in google and the links pop up.

For the corolla concept they claimed less then 3,000lbs. If they do the same for this car, I may be selling my Z.


WHOA!!! hehe...

2az-FE based ?

A blurb here.

http://9thgencorolla.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=2157

and here
http://toyrolla.com/forums/index.php?topic=1938.40

I saved the brief article.
https://wfs.bc.edu/melket/Public/Car_st ... rrolla.jpg

2.5l ? 3azgte

Based on the 2az-FE in the Camry/Scion TC; With a G-head ? :-)
Maybe VVTI ?

Based on the Caldina platform ?
Does that mean Auto, or will Toyota bring back the 5spd ?

We'll have to wait for the anwers. though.

Me too.

I'll cross my fingers and hope that the WRC Corolla that Bryan referred to above really happens and makes it to US shores.

well i was interested for the first few paragraphs, it sounded pretty badass. until i read about integrated tv's, led spokes, different color forlights, and standard lambo doors. thats just a little bit overkill to me. and i am sure that if all these ideas are incorporated, these may be cool for like the first month, but then everyone and their brother will own one and they will be nothing special.

and then the pics-i liked the teaser pic. but thats just, shit i dunno, i just really dont like it.

I was willing to ignore the pics while I read the article, but it didn't talk about what I would care about (non-FWD, forced induction, suspension setup, etc.). Going on and on about fancy features that aren't worth it and would break within a year anyway... when will they learn?

oh well, it was nice to hope for a little while
