The Toyota Sports Car You Will Love

The Scion brand was only around for a short thirteen years. This sub brand from Toyota was meant to strike a chord with younger shoppers to ensure they could purchase a great vehicle at a reasonable price. The overall thought was to offer a brand of vehicles that had only a few options to help keep the pricing consistent and affordable. The transition for a car shopper of Scion was for them to purchase the Scion at an early age, move to a Toyota model in the second phase of car ownership and eventually head to the luxury arm of Toyota by purchasing a Lexus model later in their lives.

You Won’t Believe the Sales

With 2015 behind us and a quarter of 2016 gone we now get a chance to look back at the sales that were 2015. This past year was the strongest year ever in the automotive industry. More cars were sold than in any one year previously and you might think that every car had a banner year, but you would be wrong. For an unfortunate few models sales did not reach anywhere near the goals set by the manufacturer, even though these models were good cars and offered features that should have attracted more customers.

When You still Want to Shift

For many years the idea of driving a sports car with an automatic transmission was laughable.  These transmissions were capable of taking the shifting off our plates but couldn’t give us the fuel mileage we would get from a manual and certainly couldn’t give us the performance we desired.  That has all changed and now more cars are fitted with automatics than ever before because they are now made to deliver better fuel mileage and certainly can shift faster and smoother than we can ourselves.  Even with that thought, if you want to enjoy a manual transmission and handle the shifting duties yourself, here are twenty cars that still allow you to do so.

For the Subaru BRZ and Scion FR-S, Tim Allen Needs to be Called

Possibly that is a stretch in the title to say we must call on Tim Allen even though anyone familiar with his brand of comedy and his television show would know he has always advocated for more power. To Tim it never mattered where that power came from as long as you could put more of it in whatever you were working on. The Subaru BRZ and is cousin the Scion FR-S are certainly cars that offer the need for more power. These two are amazing performance inspired vehicles which offer great handling and control in order to experience exceptional capability. With the thought of more power for this already awesome pair of cars, we can continue to complain and whine until Subaru wakes up and puts a strong V8 inside with a better exhaust and shaves off some weight from the car, or we can do ...
