It was reported earlier this year that Scion may be planning a convertible version of the Scion tC to give the brand an exciting drop-top to capture more of the youth market – well, it’s not going to happen.
“There is no tC convertible planned nor being discussed,” Jack Hollis, vice president of Scion told Inside Line. “It doesn’t mean there’s not room for one, and we continually look at different designs for convertibles, but we just haven’t found anything we’ve gotten all excited about for Scion.”
Hollis said that convertibles tend to target a female audience and that the Scion tC is targeting men in their 20s.
Refresher: The 2011 Scion tC is powered by an all-new 2.5L inline 4-cylinder engine with dual VVT-i that makes 180-hp, 19 more than the previous model. The 2011 tC will be offered with either a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic with sequential-shift. Prices start at $18,995.
