Scion sent out a teaser about the concept it will launch at the New York Auto Show this week. The name was confirmed, plus a teaser picture was made available. The picture, showing a little more than half the car, is pretty revealing. It looks like a squat, curvy xB, which I found surprising because I didn't expect the xB to be the basis for this new sport-coupe concept. I also messed around with Photoshop to copy half the image and split it to try to see what the whole thing would look like. I've got the grille basically right, but the perspective makes the cab look too much like a bubble, which I'm sure it isn't. I'll have the full story on the Fuse in a couple of days.
