those were some weirdass ads lol

Well they certainly were not targeting most of the people on this forum that is for sure.

Weird ads.

SO Toyota played with the Idea a sport car would actually be wanted in a variation of beige if that’s a “color”…


That's way up there playing with my sanity just like finding out about Sara N little secret…


I need another drink…

They wanted the 2.0 to exude Luxury to cater to that "sophisticated" crowd so they spruced up the interior and gave it the strange beige/grey/green exterior colour.

But they never tweaked the suspension to match the intent so the thing rode drove just as good/bad as any other twin. That plus the Scion badge itself was the poster child for cheap and would never be associated with "sophisticated and luxurious"

The cloest you get to this intent is the uplevel twins (or the subaru limited models) post-facelift. But even if you spruce up the post-facelift cars it'll never be right for that target market.

No one's ever asked for their $500 bottle of scotch to light up. But a $20 dollar bottle of vodka? Absolut-ly

I liked the colour! The interior was nice as well except they got carried away with the tan.
Can't have a discussion on the possible new colours without considering the past ones.

The basic colours have changed a few times and there were the handful of special edition one off colours so the potential pallet is much larger than some thin.

Does anyone know when the ordering process will start for these at Dealers? Hopefully by the time they arrive to the US shores we wont be dealing with Supply Chain constraints like we're facing now!
