Toyota is closing down?

Hey guys I heard from motoring.au that Toyota will be closing all of their plants . Anyone else have any information on this? Something about Fr-s sales being so low, and production costs being so high that the company is going bankrupt...

I understand that they are just going to run the WRX through a press to flatten it and weld the rear doors shut and use that as the new 86.

Rescinded because this was legit...even if the facts weren't strictly correct.

Toyota is shutting down the SCION brand - see here: http://www.motortrend.com/news/break...Motor+Trend%29


this is putting into question the future of the FRS...which, will likely impact the future of the BRZ too.

Personally, I think they should rebrand it as a Toyota Celica! This is the closest thing to the original Celicas since before 1986 when they went FWD.

From Toyota's announcement:
Quote:
The FR-S sports car, iA sedan and iM 5-door hatchback will become part of the Toyota family.
Is it wrong that I chuckled at this thinking of all the guys who re-badged their FR-S with the Toyota logo?
