Mazda 86.... they already have the Miata, no need.

But a Scion Mazda3 or just a Mazda-based Scion sedan that sits above the iA is what I can actually see happening, a volume model that fits the Scion portfolio.

I'm not so sure about a Scion EV but I do think that we will see some Mazda fuel cell vehicles in the future. Toyota was probably happy to share that technology to help it proliferate more which will encourage more infrastructure to be built.

THats not true, Mazda has always a true coupe. The Miata is a great roadster but always suffered because it was only a roadster.

I'm better the MAzda/Toyota tie up is the reason the media is bzzing about this baby 86.

Very true, the closest they ever got was with a hard top.

Mazda coming out with a true sports coupe will do wonders for them and Toyota, possibly having real success, sustained success, unlike the 86/BRZ which only lasted for so long.

Interesting, the notorious rumor RAG Motoring.au is saying that Toyota is working on an open wheel car based on the Miata platform with a 100 hp 4 pot...

More speculation on the Toyota/Mazda tie up. Looks like Toyota will recieve Mazda skyActiv diesels to drop into its compacts in Europe, Mazda will get PHEV technology. As the well the two are supposed to be working on a diesel hybrid CUV based on the Prius....

Was always wondering when Toyota would get into diesels like that. Partnering up with Mazda to use their diesels instead of developing their own probably saved hundreds of millions.
