This is very, very, shocking news honestly. Instead of the FR-S's becoming more valuable(if they every will) I think the TC's might. They are no longer making the TC. I think they're only bringing over the iA, iM, and FR-S.

Kind of surprising overall, seems like there are quite a few tc's in my area. Did anyone else notice on there plate renewal this year lists the frs's vehicle make as toyota? Seems at the very least Illinois has it this way.

Ya, I wasn't very clear on that. They are keeping the planned NEW line up and just rebadging.

Looks like I'll be getting a Toyota GT86 lol

haha, same here!

That is the most difficult part to change. I was going to get the 86 badge from speedfactory but now with this news I will wait. Maybe if they get that 86 version of the wheel, I'll just buy it from the dealer!

I wonder if new Toyota FR-S owner's will be willing to badge swap with the scion guys?

MisterSheep 02-03-2016 11:30 AM

Also, does this mean the new RS2.0 will still be released as a scion? Kind of like a last hurah or will it be the first toyota FR-S?

Why do people like the tC?

It has always been like that for me here in Florida since 2013.

Mine was always listed as a Toyota FR-S when I registered it on my insurance in 2013. Also had to call up my toll collector and speak to an agent to add the car in there.

:popcorn:

Don't do it...Toyota will be doing this for free starting Aug 2016.:lol:

I will now handle my Scion 10 Series book with cotton gloves. It is now a piece of automotive history.

MisterSheep 02-03-2016 11:35 AM

I am also curious what they will be doing with the car.. They said they are stopping production of the scions on August 2016. And all cars with MY17 will be toyotas. Wasn't our car due for a facelift as well? Maybe they'll incorporate the new facelift with the new toyota cars that will be coming.
