Scion FR-S is Toyota’s sports car passion

Posted on 27 February 2013 by Tony Santos


Back in SEMA 2012 the Subaru BRZ and Scion FR-S were revealed to sum up Subaru and Toyota’s collaboration to build a sports car. It’ll be an unusual track for Toyota but it didn’t stop Akio Toyoda, president of Toyota to make his passion into reality. The Scion FR-S gets official as a sports car.

Much has been made and told about Toyota and Subaru’s collaboration to come up with its sports car especially if we’re talking with the design. Toyota admits that Subaru did most of the execution while most of the design was engineered by them. The all new platform and chassis are from Subaru with Toyota’s eight-injector direct and port fuel injection to Subaru’s 2.0-liter flat-four. The external seemed to have a breath of Lexus LFA supercar. Much of the execution, Subaru is responsible for the assembly of BRZ and FR-S.

The 2013 Scion FR-S is currently offered with starting prices of $25,255 for manual transmission and $26,355 automatic transmission. Both packages will come with default front-mounted flat boxer engine and a 6-speed transmission. The rear wheel drive FR-S is made for going places.

Harmoniously, that is how every parts of the Scion FR-S work. The sports car is designed for stability and agility that allows you to explore its features to its limit –you just need to bring your advance driving skills on the table.
