Toyota To dDrop Celica and MR2

Hi
I saw this in a newspaper and on the net and I think it really sucks it said:

Toyota Motor Sales (TMS), U.S.A., Inc., has announced the intention to discontinue sales of the Celica and MR2 sports cars by the end of the 2005 model year. The models will then be dropped from production. Don Esmond, senior vice president and general manager of the Toyota Division said, "The Celica and MR2 have been a favorite among sports car enthusiasts since their introductions in the U.S. The past few years, however, have been very challenging for both Celica and MR2 as competition in a segment where 'what's new' dominates and we continue to add more exciting and youthful products to the line-up such as the Matrix and Corolla XRS, Solara sports coup and recently the Scion xA, xB and tC."

What do you all think of this

I didn't know about the MR2.

Someone is being a dumbass at Toyota. Give the Celi a Scion engine & a few mods & it would be king.

Hey Valentino, it might take a while for information to reach the Caribbean from the states, but we've known that for a little over a month now.
