It sucks, but, at the same time, I'm glad because a new one with a better engine would make the 7th gen resale value plummet.

Plus, I'd had to have an "older celica."

End of a great line of cars, I think Toyota is stupid for killing it in favor of lesser cars like XRS and tC.

Oh well.

Oh well, Maybe after a few years down the road they will do a retro comeback celica based on the 1st gen. Now that would be awesome.

I don't know why they didn't just put the revenue spent on those fucking Scions towards marketing the Celica. They gave up on the Celica years ago in my opinion. No one is gonna buy that under powered Scion coupe, and the one that looks like a fucking refridgerator on wheels.

I think I'm gonna go with Subaru on my next vehicle purchase. Toyota can kiss my ass. thumbsdown

cry No more CELICA. Poeple here at work kinda like the new scions. I don't know why, they say "They are so cute."
Even some guys are saying they are cute, but anyways, bad move by toyota and they will regret that they discontinued two of the greated cars.

its actually an honor for all you guys owning the last generation celica. but i think we should inform toyota for the made steps theyve been lately taking. maybe something like a petition, not telling them that we want celica back, just to let them know as "we, the young generation" dont love replacing supras, mr2s, and celicas with stupid scions. and also inform them about their bad decisions and that we will never buy toyota vehicles again.

yet in the end, its a good way to end a celica. the 7th gen looks like a mother fucker with a nice kit. hopefully they have more aftermarket parts soon. toyota is just giving up on creating good cars with extra speed, Turbo,... pussies.

btw, whoever said that parts will be harder to find for our cars since the car wont be produced: wrong. even a company stops making a certain car, they still make parts for it. toyota does make parts for older cars, unlike ford.

I bet that they will both come back in time. While they might discontinue production of the Celica and MR-S for a few years, they will make them again in the future. It happened with the MR2, they stopped production (at least in the US) and then reintroduced a new model a few years later.

oh well, i'm really not concerned about it. if my resale values go up then it's all good.

personally, the celica has NOT made me a fan of toyota--and i have no plans to ever purchase another toyota again at this time.

you can only stay behind the competition for so long before you finally wake up and realize that what your offering just doesn't cut it.
