Dream Car Make and Model Mixmatch: Is that a Scion iM? Or Toyota Impreza?

1 of 7

The Scion iM Concept was revealed yesterday with a full body kit, lowered suspension, and 19″ wheels.

Yes, it’s known as a Toyota Auris in other parts of the world, but it isn’t a wagon.  If it had a different name, it may as well be called a Toyota Impreza hatchback.

Now, that’s a random name, but could you imagine mixing your favorite manufacturer with a separate model name?

Could you make a dream car out of the name?

Take your favorite manufacturer and separate model vehicle.  Imagine that you chose a Subaru and a Porsche 911 GT3.  Combine the two.  What would a Subaru 911 GT3 look like?

Would it be an all-wheel drive version of the current GT3? Would it retain the same short-gear ratios as a GT3, as opposed to the current 911 Turbo and Turbo S?  Would you keep the same flat-boxer four cylinder?  A lower priced 911 GT3 with a turbo-boxer four sounds quite appealing, don’t you think?

I’ve led a career path in the automotive world for nearly ten years.  It has given me the opportunity to drive all sorts of different cars and a few exotic ones as well.  Test drives may have been short, but they are easily memorable.

You can imagine how that has shaped my automotive tastes.

We’re going to name five different, random make and model cars of my choice.
