well story is that the engine for the celica is the one Yamaha built, but the rason why the elipse is getting it is mostly political because Toyota owns 30% of the stock of Lotus and they basicly sadi that if the toyota "so called engine" is not in the elipse then they will not allow it to be sold in the US market. so in a way its sad politics dictates what people ride and drive.
