2013 Scion FR-S
2013 Scion FR-S

New For 2013

The FR-S was introduced in the spring of 2012 for model year 2013. It is nearly identical to the Subaru BRZ; the FR-S is slightly less expensive, but it has a bit less standard equipment.

Overview

The FR-S is the first-ever sports car for Scion, and it’s a radically different machine from the boxy subcompacts that the brand is best known for and is nothing like even the sporty tC coupe. The FR-S is the result of a collaboration with Subaru, and Subaru is selling a virtually identical car, the BRZ. Subaru also builds both versions, and the engine in the FR-S is a horizontally opposed Subaru four-cylinder. The benefit of a so-called boxer engine is its low overall height, which allows the FR-S to have a lower center of gravity. The 2.0-liter is good for 200 hp and comes with a six-speed stick or a six-speed automatic with shift paddles. In keeping with the pure sports car idea, the FR-S is rear-wheel drive and, equally important, is very light weight, at about 2750 pounds. The small two-plus-two does have rear seats, but they’re pretty cramped; the rear seatbacks do fold down to expand trunk space. Performance-wise, the FR-S is not a powerhouse, but it’s definitely quick. The car’s overarching character, however, comes from its beautifully balanced chassis, which makes for neutral handling. The FR-S is fun to drive in a way that no previous Scion has ever been and few other cars are.

Safety

Front, side, and side curtain air bags; traction and stability control; and ABS are standard.

Scion FRS 2013 Profile

2013 Scion FR S Front Left View
Ann Arbor, Michigan -- Since the Scion FR-S debuted, people have tried to milk more power out of it. FR-S owner Mark Sanew loved his car's balanced chassis and handsome bodywork but bemoaned its straight-line shortcomings. "I lost a drag race to a Ford F-250," he admits. Yeah, that hurts.
2013 Toyota Gt86 Front Three Quarters 2
Although many were disappointed that the recent Subaru BRZ STI preview turned out to be a mild tuning upgrade rather than a full-on STI model, fans of the sports car twins may be able to turn to Toyota for a higher-powered version. This is exciting news for those who have expressed their concern that the standard car's 2.0-liter, 200-hp boxer four-cylinder is simply not enough power for the capable, balanced rear-wheel-drive chassis.
TRD Griffon GT86 Front Three Quarter
Toyota Racing Development has released photos of its newest project car based on the GT86 (known here as the Scion FR-S and Subaru BRZ). Called the TRD Griffon GT86, the modified sports coupe will make its public debut July 12 at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.

So Toyota's GT 86 (sold here as the award-winning Scion FR-S) is a success--what's next for the automaker and its stable of sporty cars? We hear that the Toyota/BMW sports car project briefly mentioned late last year is still taking shape.
