Scion FR-S Crashes the Party at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance

Scion FR-S Crashes the Party at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance

A Scion is about the last car you’d expect to see at the prestigious Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, but the FR-S concept has a design worthy of a six-, or even a seven-figure price tag.

Set to be unveiled as a Toyota model at the Tokyo Auto Show later this year, the production FR-S is then expected to be revealed at the NY Auto Show in 2012. Toyota has continued to be nearly silent on details, but what we do know is that this light-weight coupe will be powered by a Subaru-sourced boxer 4-cylinder engine, using a Toyota direct-injection system. Power will be delivered though the rear wheels using either a six-speed auto or manual (your choice) and a limited slip differential will be standard.

    I want this car and I hope it comes with turbo already.I hope it will look just like that when it comes out, low profile and small wheel gap wish this car have power.

  • Melma L Proper

    I love this elegant car can i have it please, please, please,

  • Bruce

    I hope that unlike the shapely, beautiful and exotic Charger concept, this one comes to market. Suspect I’d be one of the many that would jump at a chance to own one!

  • Anish

    Omg the Car of my dreams. This is also gonna be my first car for sure <3

  • Alex

    what’s the COST!!!!! COST!!!! COST!!!!! COST!!!!!

    It should have Subaru boxer engine with Toyota direct injection tech, which produces around 200HP. It should be a quite performance car in twisty road yet not so fast on a flat straight lane. However, Subaru might have additional engine options: 2.0 NA boxer w/o direct injection or 2.0 turbo boxer which potentially makes 240HP. For its design, as many already know, Subaru almost certainly will not use as much curves as FR-S concept shown here. What would be your choice, power or beauty? ๐Ÿ™‚

    oh, price will be around $28K. I know, I know… Many will turn to Mustang, Genesis or Camaro for “power-for-bucks.” Just remember that BRZ/FR-S is designed for different purpose. Simply see how many Miatas were sold despite small engine displacement and HP figure. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Clearly no one has been flowing this car from the early stages from years ago
    The car will NOT come turbo
    Roughly 200bhp NA
    Neither will the Toyota which will NOT be released in north America
    Was designed to be able to do a motor swap for other subu engines if power is desired but this car is suppose to have the most perfect weight displacement and such low center of gravity that it’s just insane on corners
    Price ranges about 28k
    The entire reason behind this car was a light weight low cost performance RWD car to bring back the old AE86
    The thing has spots in the dash for a roll cage so you don’t have to cut it up
    This car is leaning towards drifters and tuners
    TRD will be making most after market parts for it

    Phil I see you covered most of this but I didn’t know that until aftr I made this and I don’t wanna delete it:-p
