Scion has further fueled rumors that it will debut a replacement for the tC coupe later this month at the 2008 New York Auto by releasing a teaser shot today of what it's calling the Hako Coupe Concept. Being a teaser, it doesn't reveal much of anything about the coupe except that it's orange and appears to have a blocky front end design. Scion has been known to make big news at the New York Auto Show, having unveiled the well regarded Fuse concept there two years ago. What we're likely to see is a concept that takes cues from the Fuse and incorporates them into a more production feasible body shape. We'll know for sure is a couple of weeks when we hit the Big Apple.
