i think it will be Toyota FR-S (North America) and keep GT86 else where...same base model...hopefully you can actually add trim levels this time around.

Wow! So unexpected! I'd like to thank Toyota for making this possible... It's been a long hard road but we finally did it.

Well, everyone who rebadged was years ahead of the curve. Still, I feel a little off about it. Mainly because my stereo will says Scion on it.

Too bad. Scion was finally getting a pretty good lineup.

Nobody was "whining about clickbait" the sites that initially released that info had no official capacity and until it is stated by the actual manufacturer must be considered with some caution. The sites are notorious for making things up and need to be questioned and people need to be cautious until there are OFFICIAL statements made.

I was just about to buy toyota badges also haha

This sure came out of left field. Other than this car, I would never buy a Scion. Awful car selection. Their showing at the auto show was laughable, a bunch of cheap ugly cars, and the FR-S.

The lineup was never the main problem, marketing was the problem.

Who knew you cant sell cars the same way you sell Mountain Dew or Razor Scooters... I did.

As stated the line up stays just the badges change.
