I was talking to the manager of the local Daihatsu dealer here in SA - we still have them - and he tells me that some years ago, Daihatsu brought a few 1500cc Copens into South Africa... Now I know that the Copen came in 660cc & 1300cc flavours but I had never heard of a 1500cc. Has anyone else heard of such a beast? Is there any way to verify the story? Seeing how much empty real-estate there is under the bonnet of my 1.3, I am dubious that a bigger engine could be squeezed in there. Also, he tells me that all the Toyota engines of 1.5l or less are actually Daihatsu engines. Is there any truth to his claims?
