Friday Video: Celica Panic!

After seeing a prototype of Jun Imai’s latest design in the flesh at JCCS last weekend, we’ve had nothing but Celica on the brain all week here at JNC.

    Oh how I long for that power plant under my corolla’s hood. I’m definitely feeling that video!

    At first I thought 2JZ, but there are only 4 ITB’s, what motor is this? Did any other music geeks catch ratatat in the background?

    Sometimes I wonder if Toyota could bring back the Celica. Infact why don’t we just take the current tC and make it rear wheel drive. It looks good, the motor is good, Aasbo has a RWD converted one in D1. The window design even reminds me of the older celicas http://maydaygarage.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/09/Dylans_mint_1974-Toyota_Celica-_GT-CustModCars.Com-5.jpg vs

I’m glad we have the FR-S, but at the same time a more affordable RWD would be fun too. I gladly picked my 2013 tC for $21k. Even as a FWD its a fun car but there will always be times where I wish it wasn’t.
