Report: Scion planning convertible version of 2011 tC

2011 Scion tC

After waiting forever to get new products, Scion finally received some attention at the 2010 New York Auto Show. The 2011 Scion tC will go on sale in dealerships later this fall while the Scion iQ will go on sale in early 2011.

“The all-new tC features styling that is both refined and aggressive, appealing to a sports coupe owner who wants to make a bold statement,” Hollis said. “The tC has had the youngest median age buyer in the industry, and with more power, superior driving dynamics, and increased fuel efficiency, that should remain the case with the new tC as well.”

According to a report by Inside Line Scion is also working on a convertible version of the Scion tC for 2012. If the car makes it into production, it would not only be the first Scion convertible, but will also be the only convertible sold at Toyota/Scion dealers.

The Scion tC convertible is expected to share the coupe’s 2.5L 4-cylinder engine making 180-hp mated to a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic.
