Default Toyota and Fuji Heavy put joint sports car on back burner:

Quote:
Toyota decided to delay the compact sports car it has been developing with Fuji Heavy, the Nikkei (sub) writes. The two automakers had planned to begin manufacturing the car in late 2011 for the domestic market, but the start of production will now likely be postponed until 2012 or later

I seriously hope this forces Toyota to reconsider using one of their own homebrewed powertrains, i.e. Lets take the 3SGE blacktop engine and Altezza transmission!

Say bye bye to anything performance. Better hope GM makes it, since they at least make cars with performance in mind... unlike the Toy.
