Like lets say there is a car show and their gonna build a car like 80 percent of the time they have a civic build up.
It is also Toyotas fought they dont support their only sportcars they just focuse on older people cars.
Why do you think Scion was invented
Reason why ppl build up Civics is two fold. One, civics are affordable cars and everybody drives them, so aftermarket performance part companies have found their market. The reason that market exists is because, 2, civics with body kits look similar to the Nissan Skyline in Japan. Of course, the two are not matched in speed, but its looks that are important.
The reason Toyota dropped their Celica and MR2 line is beyond me. Scion is NOT sportscar related. The Scion tC is marketed as a sportscar, but in reality, it is nothing more than another economy car with sleek looks, just like the Celica (which is also not that fast, to address your first post). Toyota focuses on Camrys and Corollas because thats what at least 70% of ppl walking into Toyota buy. Both cars have won numerous awards and much prestige year after year after year. Motor Trend, JD Power and Associates, Consumer Reports, on and on. This is the demand and when demand runs out or diminishes, the company focuses on their better selling product and either discontinues or introduces a new product to catch market attention (Scion).
I hope this clarifies. Long response, I know.
