    "Toyota and Subaru are joining forces to develop a sensational new sports coupé together, shown above in an Autocar image."

    "A naturally aspirated version of the petrol boxer engine with 175bhp is being considered for the base model, and there is potential for a hot 2.5-litre turbocharged model later."

    No, upon further inspection: I don't believe this rumor.

    Fuji and Toyota have no working interest. That establishment would take 4 years, at best, to congeal within the Japanese Island.

    Toyota builds better motors than Subaru. Sorry, but it's the way it is. Subaru has this thing with AWD, and neither have anything to do with pure hatchbacks anymore. Toyota will fill it's RWD dancecard with the Alessandro Volta, and Subaru has it's sports hands full with the 3 guys that currently add spoilers and huge foglights to economy cars.

    This isn't going to happen.

    If they keep it looking the way it does in that picture, who cares how it's badged.

    I'm not sure if you guys realise this or not, but the TC is a BANGIN car. It's a secretary car, but it's still a nice thing for a 4 wheel cage.

    I'm not saying there's anything wrong with Scion..... I just don't think it should be badged as one if this concept were to make it to the streets.

    Meh, I see waaay too many girls driving them to ever really want one. It'd have to be really manly looking.

    Hey I can have an opinion can't I? I'm sure yours looks fine, but the only people I know that have Scions are girls. Maybe if the only people I know that had Scions were dudes I would feel oppositely.

    True, but I rarely see girls driving them around where I drive. I know a ton of guys that have nicely modified Civics. So it's all just a matter of opinion.

    You probably already know this, but through research for one of my classes I've found that BMW plans to have a hybrid offering for the X6 and there is a hybrid X3 concept ready to roll out as well.

    Apparently the X6 was a joint venture between BMW, Daimler, and a third company. I just saw the first commercial for the car the other day.
