Remember the Toyota Celica? We think it’s time to revive the icon
Toyota’s Gazoo Racing has been producing a plethora of performance vehicles in the GR Supra, GR 86, GR Yaris and GR Corolla, but there’s a gap to fill in the line-up, namely in the front-wheel-drive-based coupe slot.
We fully support the revival of one of the brand’s icons: the Toyota Celica. Check out our renders and reasoning here.
The hype dies down on electric vehicle company, Rivian
Rivian has been on struggle street since it became public in November last year. Since then $US132.78 billion has been slashed from its valuation, a loss of approximately 85 per cent – including a 17 per cent drop in the past week alone. Check out the full story here.
