Toyota decided to revive another coupeSeptember 21, 2018
The Japanese, watching what a stir around the revived Supra is going on, thought about reviving another sport model – Celica.
Not so long ago Toyota took the course for emotional and bright models, in addition, specially for the “charged” machines was created a separate line of GR. But, of course, the special expectations of fans are associated with the revived Supra, which will appear on the market next year. Therefore, the Japanese thought about reviving yet another sports model.
“We want a new MR2, we want a new Celica,” Assistant Chief Engineer Supra Masayuki Kai said in an interview with Road & Truck Magazine. “We are returning Supra and now we must look at the reaction of buyers and make a final decision.”
Kai hinted that the greatest chance of a new generation in Celica. This coupe, in his opinion, should be all-wheel drive, to successfully supplement the two rear-wheel drive coupes (Toyota GT86 and Supra).
But the engineer stipulates that sports cars are expensive when created and unprofitable for automakers. Therefore, the new model, if approved by the company’s management, will be created jointly with another automaker, as has already happened with Supra.
