    New York 2011: Scion FR-S Concept is "friggin' really sweet" — Autoblog

    [​IMG]

    This is one of three vehicles that are conjunct between Toyota and Subaru.

    The Toyota FT-86 (spiritual successor to the AE-86 of old) , Scion FR-S(most likely the version to be sold on US shores) and the Subaru boxer sports coupe.

    all three are front engined rear wheel drive powered by 4 cylinders.

    As of this year these are the final prototype concepts and by next year or the end of this year we should see the final product.

    Now this I like. I hope it will be around 2700 lbs or less as people are estimating.
    With no turbo(yet?) it'll need as little weight as possible to get the best bang for your buck.
    I am glad those wheels are prototype only though. They look pretty gaudy.

    Very tasty, Toyota is getting its mojo back :) . Also, way I hear it is that the Toyota version is a N/A engine and Subaru's version is turbo-charged.

    That is one sexy car. I love the looks that Scion puts out.

    Those rims look like they could grind someone into little pieces though. :lol

    Looks like the closest thing to a Supra we've had in years since they stopped making Supras.

    Yeah it really does. I've always liked that car though, so it's all good.
