Should Toyota bring back a newer looking old celica ? Sun, 29 August 2004 00:40 Go to next message

Should Toyota make a modern older style Celica ?[ 46 vote(s) ]
1.Hell Yes 32 / 70%
2.Shit no ! 14 / 30%

I figured seen as tho they r cutting it from the line up they could make a new celica styled like the older models like they have done with the land cruiser.
Ford and GM r doing it so y not toyota ?
it would at least bring the celica back.

I've been thinking about it for a while so i though i would ask u guys.

thats like saying that old monaro's are now less valuable since the release of the newer ones...i dont think this is the case
you'll always get what i term old school purists

i voted no, not sure why...it was the first responce that flew into my head. what i would like to see is a RWD celica. this has been discussed before i think, and aparently toyota develop FWD celicas because they're apparently targeted at a more female market who consider FWD cars to be safer than the "evil" RWD's
either that or bring out another GT4 but with a competitive price tag this time :/ But that would probably mean a lesser end product

na, it's been done before the newer celicas are alright but they need another GT4 in the current shape, give the Celica it's sporty GT4 back! Evil or Very Mad

I like every model except the RA40,60 (or what every they where) I reckon they look yuck (my 2 cents) my only beef with the new ones is there's no GT4!

The new one was designed for a small V6, instead they gave it a revvy 4 cylinder which is a gem of a motor just not good for that car. And they look ghey

im not going to vote cause im undecided, i woyuld love them to make another round of TA22s just so i could buy one not rusted Very Happy but at the same time i dont want them to build anymore so that classic cars can get more expensive...

its like FORD america, they have re-released the old skool mustang GT500 (eleanor) at $500000 australian... i wouldnt pay that much for it even though i would love to have one... so if they remade a TA22 i recon they would charge something like $40000 for it

A new version of the RA28 would be pretty cool, but if you look at the new beetles and mini's they have screwed the pooch a bit and have moved too far from the originals.

of course they wont, and they wont bring back old school celica's either. or supra's or MR2's

so we can all just keep dreaming and build the cars we want instead since toyota wont.

Nah, the GT4 is behind its time now...

If they were to do anything it should be build a 2.0L Turbocharged 4WD corolla, now that would be a bit of a fun box Very Happy

The fact remains as simon said, toyota dont build hi-po cars anymore and if they do they dont bring them here...

The best we see is the Lexus IS300 and thats not even badged as a toyota, oh and we get other stuff too like the sportivo range, but they dont count because they are FWD Laughing Laughing

There are no muscle cars in thier range anymore, like thier used to be with the supra and soarer, lets just hope they decide to build the IS430, that may give us some salvation Very Happy

No they wouldn't. In fact they would probably lose shitloads of money. Sure all the AE86 purists and Takumi-wannabes would snap them up (at least those old enough to drive Laughing ), but globally speaking that's a tiny market. The rest of the market will look at this strange little car styled like a 20 year old Corolla with a $100k pricetag, and say "WTF was Toyota thinking??"

Wouldn't the Lexus RS200 Be bordering on a Modern Sprinter setup?

Sorry, I have always looked at the IS/RS200 the same as a Sprinter. remove all the luxury stuff bring down the weight??

Just my opinion.

EDIT: Oh and I'd love to see a retro build of the pre 78 model Celicas. Would be such a nice daily driver if it was 1. RWD and 2. Very closely based on the old Skool Shape Styling.

I wouldn't mind seeing the old "Mustang" shape Celica back again, that was a nice looking ride. I liked the shape of the original FWD model, too.

I remember Nissan in the USA doing something interesting between axing the old 300ZX and starting the new 350Z ... they started buying up the original 240Z's and restoring them to their former glory. From what I've read, it was a pretty popular move on their part.

Perhaps Toyota could do something like that with one of the old Celica models. I was going to suggest doing a new T18 as well, but that's probably a silly idea! Laughing
