Toyota to revive the Celica?

In an interview given to Automobilwoche, Markus Schrick, vice president of Toyota Deutschland, said that Toyota will launch a new sports coupé in Europe. Due to be unveiled within two years, the coupé would replace the Celica, which was discontinued in 2005.

It is not a secret that the Japanese car maker is currently working on a new sports car in collaboration with Subaru. Destined for the Japanese market, this sports car would be only sold under the Toyota marque. Secrecy continues to surround the exact spec of the final car, although it is understood that it will feature a 2 litre engine and a Subaru's four-wheel drive. But, while the European sports coupé might arrive in showrooms in 2009, the Japanese sports car will arrive in 2010. So, at this stage, we can not say how the future European sports coupé will look like.
