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.

SRV 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...

Moe 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.

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.

Lando 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.

probabaly not, but you might see a Mazda 86 or possibly a Scion badged Mazda3... (which Toyota IS helping to hybridize)

You'll be waiting a long time, possibly next generation.

With the MPG's it gets with Mazda's 1.5 mated to a 6-speed automatic, it will have a long "shelf life"
