Apparantly rumour has it Papadakis Racing already has a chassis that they are building for Tanner Foust to use later this year.

Going by this it appears that it will be badged as a Scion in North America.

See I would take the Scion, isn't the subaru going to be AWD? Plus I like Scion racing.

I guess it will be a Toyota in most places so really you could swap the badges and be JDM.

just doing so research and buying the scion FT-S "could" be more fun. Take the $40,000 price tag of the subaru one and buy the Scion version and take the ej25 NA and swap the manifolds and exhaust + add a turbo and you have the same thing but rwd? Hhmmm.... scratch

See, I think there is some pontenial to be had there, however people are also mad about the engine.

I mean it is the internet, so I know it is impossible to be positive but it would seem people won't be happy until Toyota makes another Supra... However, it will have to weigh less then the MKIV and make more power and cost a little less then the GTR. But it can't be too cheap or eveyone can have it and nobody wants those kids in tight jeans to get their hands all over it, what with their Rock and Roll music!

The average car enthusiast (not exempting myself) must be the most annoying thing to car Companies. We sit and complain that there are no decent RWD for cheap like back in the day. So a company listens, builds one then everybody hates anyway because they spend there time comparing it to an econo car from the 80*s.

In the end the people who are complaining are never going to be the ones who buy it because they think that their used sports car from the 80's and 90's are the bees knees. When really it is just an excuse because they don't have the money to buy a new car anyway.

Huh.... and here I am thinking the Hyundai Genesis 2.0T is the AE86 of our time. But in truth, it's a much more advanced car. But in a price range available to anybody.

I wonder if a small RWD econobox car would sell again?

I was actually waiting for you to weigh in, I thought you could be insightful. The same people who hate the Scion/Toyoto never mention the Genesis, it is not even a blip on their radar. I feel like these cars are great platforms but people are well you know...

just my two cents here..

I have never had any personal problems with hyundai just to clarify the only thing that i believe puts people to think that hyundai is garbage is because how can you sell a brand new car for under 10 000 (including mark up taxes etc) and still make money... i understand huge processing/fabrication of parts makes them cheaper but still it shows the guality of the product of what you are buying. The genesis (I have seen all versions) is no doubt a decent looking sports car with exceptional performance however hyundai will never make their mark in the "sports" car world by going from tiburon to genesis. Need more options for sports cars better quality and a better re-sale value

Hyundai has actually been ranking pretty high in quality as of late. They went a long way to refute the idea that you have mentioned. As for sports cars they have a solid relationship with Rhys Millen and have been doing pretty good at building a reputation with the use of their race teams. There are few companies that are willing to stand behind their product like Hyundai.

Even when some manufactures had an unimpressive attendance at SEMA or didn't even show Hyundai actually had a pretty impressive showing.
