The FormTrends article on it was interesting:

Too bad. I think the original xB and even the tC had a lot of promise. Maybe we should do a Scion revival design challenge :-)

Scion showed how to not build a youth brand. Kia did a good job. Mini did an excellent job.

The Scion FR-S becomes the Toyota 86.

I saw a commercial for one of the old Scions that has been rebranded Corolla something-or-other. Good riddance.

I like how the jalopnik article was at first very humourous to then it suddenly took a a more serious tone.
Anyways...
Its a pity that Toyota cut Scion and that they "got scared of taking risks" like the formtrends article expressed.
Im curious to see what Toyota will do now.
