Think there will be mark-up on the first few that hit dealers? I wouldn't think so since the Scion should be held to their Pure-Pricing creed.
I may consider it as well. I really would like to know how much different the
motor will be than say what's in the WRX/STi. If doing a swap isn't too bad,
the price may still be worth doing a transplant and not wait for the turbo
version.

Just saw a clip with the Scion with a tach reading up to 9k. Could this be
on a boxer motor stock? The styling may be hit or miss, but I think the
mechanical engineering of Subaru and Toyota may actually work.

And by the way, those whining about it not having a turbo, you need to
drive a high revving 4 that is light and can corner. I guarantee you that
you will be surprised with this car. Being able to hold gears through long
sweepers is key on the track.
