    How about the Subaru Supra?

    "Celica was interesting between 1970 and 1985"

    It was a front engine rear drive car from 1970 to 1985. Over the years it kept getting fatter and less interesting until it became a parody in 1986 with the switch to the FWD platform, meaning that most of the cars were secretaries cars with the exception of a few turbo awd cars. That meant the average post 1986 celica was boring and the enthusiast version became too expensive and competed with a higher class of sports car on price. Cheap electronic stability control enables a return to a basic, low weight, front engine, rear drive car that could be just the thing for the enthusiast on a budget. I just hope they make the body style day-to-day useful like a GTI and not too "sports coupe" like the hyundai genesis.

    "ST!"

    @GJames: I can't believe I'd never heard "secretarial transport" used in conversation before, but it's a PERFECT descriptor. Exactly the car Shelley Duvall would've driven in 3 WOMEN (even though she wasn't technically a secretary).

    "ST?"

    I wonder if they will bring back the base ST version (secretarial transport)

    "AE86 replacement"

    This is the rumored AE86 replacement. I'm hoping for a rear-drive, hatchback, manual trans, high rev 4cyl car, under 2800lbs, with folding seats for decent cargo room and I'll sell my Infiniti G35.
