Scion tC is a compact car introduced by Japanese automaker Toyota in 2004 as a concept car under its recently introduced Scion brand name. The scion tc is based on the European-market Toyota Avensis. The tC is powered by a 161-horsepower, 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine that makes the tC quite entertaining to drive with the standard five-speed manual transmission, or adequate for most needs with the available four-speed automatic. Its low price is a major feature, as well as the pure pricing marketing style that Toyota has adopted. The Scion tC received a subtle makeover in 2008, with changed front and rear lights and enhancements to the interior. The grilles changed from a honeycomb style to a metal drill out style on top and a three line plastic bar style on bottom. At a press conference back in April, Toyota CEO Katsuaki Watanabe had confirmed that his company was jointly developing a pair of rear-wheel-drive sports cars with Subaru. The rumor mill has been spitting out bits and pieces about the upcoming sports coupe currently being co-developed between Toyota and Subaru, but details about the car’s U.S. availability have been relatively scattered. Early reports suggested both cars would be available for U.S. consumption, while others speculated that only the Subaru version would be available in the States. But according to a new report, both guesses are wrong.
