So after a pretty short departure, the Toyota Celica is back! It turns out that the FT-86 project Toyota has been jointly working on with Subaru is in fact the 8th generation Toyota Celica.
Obviously, Subaru will have a sister car. I’ll be interested to see how the styling differs. I like Toyota’s take, and while I love my Impreza, I’m not all that a fan of the newest generation Impreza that was recently revealed. Ah, I miss my old 6th generation Celica.
This new Celica will go back to rear-wheel drive and has Subaru’s Boxer engine under the hood, giving it a 0-60 time of under 7 seconds. Supposedly, the FT-86 concept is pretty close to the actual production car that will revive the Celica name badge.
