2011 Scion Tc: What could have been…



At least on pictures, the “all new” Tc is a big disappointment.

The 2006 Fuse Concept (That’s right, 4 years ago!), looked so much more original.
You would think that in 4 years they could have come up with a slightly toned down production version of it.
Instead, 4 years later, we get a slightly more blocky version of the same old design.
I am not a fan of “Tuning”, but I do like some of the elements of the version Five Axis showed at the New York auto show this week.
The giant fenders alone make the car so much more original…

  1. This is a perfect example of how Toyota is turning into the next GM. Take a great concept car, cheap out and force the design onto an existing chassis. Result: mediocre design that everyone can see through. Aztek anyone?

  2. All three images are rather sad in that there is nothing about any one of these cars that makes me want to own one. And I like the current TC. It's not news, but Toyota has lost its way.

  3. I can't believe these monstrosities ever made it through feedback from potential customers!

    The Fuse concept was ugly to begin with and this latest Tc is just a watered down version of that ugliness.

    I also have trouble believing it's a generational thing either. I'll really be surprised if 20-something year olds are salivating over this warthog.

  4. I like the red one.
    Everyone whines and moans about all new cars these days but i quite like it because it is different.

    I don't like the red one, or any of them. But unfortunately for you, the red one is heavily modded and never is going to happen.
