We’ve known Toyota has been working on a partnership with Subaru to bring back the Celica. But there has also been confirmation that plans were being delayed until at least 2012, if not indefinitely.
Now there’s a story coming out in next month’s L’Automobile Magazine that says the Celica will be here in 2010. The French publication says that this has been confirmed by Thierry Dombreval, vice president of sales and marketing of Toyota France.
We still are a little cautious about news of the traditionally frugal Toyota continuing plans for a sports sedan in unsure economic times (especially in addition to the rumored new hybrid MR2). But if Toyota is willing to take the risk on a new rear-drive car, we will be one its largest supporters.
