Default Toyota fell off?

Looking at Wikipedia, it seems that Toyota don't appear to make any of their renowned sports cars anymore. Now they just make "green" ****e like the Prius.

Toyota has a RWD sports car in development with Subaru right now. It will very likely be powered by a four cylinder Subaru Boxer engine, along with the STI's great 6 speed manual gearbox and should come in at under 2900lbs.

The V6 Camry is enough of a sports car for me. Pushing 270hp stock is impressive. Add a few aftermarket mods and that thing will pull.

heh heh, you didn't realize Toyota doesn't have a single sports car or sport tuner out nowadays?

If they were smart they would drop a more powerful engine in the Scion tC, the 2 door sport coupe. It is a nice little car but horribly underpowered.

Even with the TRD supercharger package it won't crack 14.5 in the quarter mile, and when you are paying 5000 dollars for that 'upgrade', mid 14's just doesn't cut it, in my opinion.

They made the Supra. So they CAN make a sports car, but they don't do it... The waste all their money on stupid hybrid cars that doesn't save the world.
But they have Lexus. Lexus made a sport car: the IS-F. And, I almost forget, LF-A. So I think that Toyota not going to relaunch the Supra, but Lexus is going to make sportscars! I hope so....

Talkin' to me? Huh? I have known it for years. It is just that until recently I could care less about making a thread.
