2005 JDM Celica GT-4
I heard a rumor recently from one of the Toyota guys in town that Toyota is going to be producing a 3S-GTE powered, all wheel drive version of the celica for the Japan market only in 2005. I don't know yet if this is true or not, but I hope that it is. I'm thinking that a GT-4 conversion on my car would be very nice wink , and the best part is that it would be almost a direct bolt in!

Has anyone else heard about this, or know anything I don't?

I was hoping that someone else had heard this also, so that I would be able to put some more faith into my friend's word... but apparently not.

Alright, well, i posted this thinking that maybe i could find some constructive input from some people on the forum... but I guess I was way out in left field to put this up here, so I'm gonna go back to my interior work and install guides, and leave the information to the experts. Later.

well..technically it is constructive..cause you found out what you wanted to know (that toyota hasnt said anythinga bout it as of yet). just some ppls deliverence of contructionism (is that evne a word? rofl) might seem overbearing.

but really...don't hesitate to put your opinions up about something or to speculate about rumors. a lot of times they will end up like this..but sometimes they will turn out to be true. thumbsup

with a AWD turbo (3SGTE) option, i deem it worthy, but i didnt think the replacement would be in the form of a wagon-sort-of-thing... idunno

yes, but the speculation is that the celica will be replaced by the incoming scion XC. the xa looks allright.

ahhhhhhhhhhhh you people!!!

you and that caldina bullshit...aye

the caldina is NOT the celica replacement for the states...

the third model Scion is COMPLETELY BRAND NEW and is just another entry for the Scion line, not intended to replace something. Toyota most likely got rid of the Celica because of poor sales, just like the MR2.

the idea of having a celica powered by the 3s-gte powerplant is awesome but we'll have to wait until toyota unveils the details
