The next Scion tC May Touchdown to the US by 2010

There have been a lot of rumors and speculations about the new sports coupe brewing between giant automakers Toyota and Subaru, but not much has been said about the car’s availability in the United States. According to early press releases, both the Toyota and Subaru versions will be sold in the U.S. but there have been new speculations that only the Subaru version will be released for U.S. consumption.

The guessing game ended when a new report said that both Toyota and Subaru will be marketing in the U.S. but the new sports coupe will not be wearing the Toyota badge.

According to CarScoop, the new sports coupe will be sporting the Toyota’s Scion emblem and will be released in the U.S. as the new Scion tC—a compact car introduced by Toyota in 2004, which is specifically designed to appeal to the Generation Y.

It has been confirmed that the new Toyota/Subaru coupe will arrive in the U.S. sometime in 2010 or early 2011. It will be Scion’s first rear-drive model.

Rumor has it that Scion tC sales might plummet because of the new Toyota/Subaru coupe, which dons the Scion emblem as the next Scion tC instead of being sold as two, almost identical, models.

The Subaru version comes with an optional 4-wheel drive system and a turbocharged engine with 300 horsepower. However, the tC will stick with the 2.0 liter four-cylinder boxer engine producing 200 horsepower, this is so to keep the value prices of the Scion models.

    I think this is a bad idea. Toyota is giving up so fast on its own engines. To me, its a sellout. Put a toyota motor back in it!!

    This car looks dope, RWD!?!? I can hear the tires screeching already

    I think RWD is a great idea. If they are smart they do as the Italians and put the transmission in the back, Alfa Romao style.

    I think its kinda stupid.. They need to not include subura in the idea of the new tC.. I have a 09 and love it and the idea of rwd is really stupid .. I just think they should stick with there own ideas and forget subura
