We’re already getting a sniff from what could come up from Toyota’s stake purchase in Subaru after GM let it go.
Toyota Matrix XRS
Motor Trend Magazine says Toyota might add a four-door rally-inspired car to it’s Scion marque called the Scion xR. A turbocharged engine, Subaru’s wonderful all-wheel drive. Perfect formula for an Evo-killer.
Perhaps a tuned up monster based on the Toyota Matrix? There is already a Toyota Matrix XRS model that comes with a VVTL-i 164hp engine. A Toyota Matrix XR also has 4WD options.
Or maybe a souped up Scion tC.
Motor Trend estimates it might hit our roads in 2009, that’s a pretty long wait. Of course, it’s just a forecast.
