<font color='#000000'>Finally got the email back from toyota.. ticketboy was right.. heres a copy of the email:


Thank you for contacting Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A., Inc.
We apologize for the delayed response to your email.

Celica is Spanish for "heavenly or "celestial". GT and GT-S are meant to represent grade changes. Unofficially, GT stands for grand touring, and GT-S stands for grand touring sport.
