Is a favorite Toyota sports car making a return?

As many of you probably know, Toyota is currently working on the rebirth of the Toyota Supra. But that N Charlotte Toyota sports car may be joined by another retired Toyota model. It’s rumored that Toyota patented the Toyota Celica nameplate with the United States Patent and Trademark Office. So, there is a strong possibility that Toyota is thinking about giving this car a second chance at life. Here are some of the features on the original Toyota Celica that we hope are included or built upon in its possible reintroduction.

Rear-wheel drive

Most people that love cars because of the way they drive usually love vehicles with RWD. The Toyota Celica’s that were made before August 1985 were made with RWD, then this Toyota sports car was changed to FWD.

Turbocharged engine

This Toyota sports car near Charlotte had 4-wheel drive and turbocharged four-cylinder engine from 1986 to 1999. The turbocharged engine gives the engine more power so it makes the Toyota Celica more fun to drive.

Multiple model types

This Toyota model was around for years and went through many changes. Over the years, the Toyota Celica has been available as a liftback coupe, a notchback coupe, and a convertible. Any of these sporty styles will look great on the roads! N Charlotte Toyota
