I think the Scion brand is great for marketing cars towards younger generations (disclaimer: I'm only 26). I get it, kids want fun cars with cute shapes that have things which tie into their devices (phones, tablets, iPods, etc). However, to put one of the best performance cars you have ever made into that same marquee is silly. Just because it's not "priced" like a Toyota would be, doesn't mean it should be in the Scion brand, even if it is a 'cool' car.
I'm saying abolish the brand entirely.
