Scion has just about exhausted the mileage it can get from itsvarious and sundry "Release Series" editions of the tC, and the front-drive coupe is the oldest thing in Scion's lineup. There is, though, on the New York International Auto Show schedule, a Scion press conference. What would Scion have in store that would justify spending for a presser instead of assigning a flak to type up a .pdf and blast it out via email?

Vice president Jack Hollis has intimated that there's a replacement for the tC on the way within two years, and the sleuths over at Inside Line did a little digging for clarity's sake. Winding up at the U.S. Patent and Trademark website, Toyota has apparently trademarked the "tD" moniker, which seems pretty logical. Drawing a line from the name to the press conference, there's a good chance that we'll see a new coupe in the Scion lineup soon, but whether it's a concept or production car is anyone's guess.
