It’s still unofficial, but a source inside Scion’s Canada division has let slip to AutoGuide that when the FR-S goes on sale later this year it will start at $27,500.
Initially commenting that the price would be somewhere between the $27,000 and $30,000 mark the insider, who wishes to remain anonymous, eventually gave the the $27,500 figure for the monospec model. By comparison, the 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe starts at $26,499 in Canada, a difference of $1,001.
It’s not possible to simply convert the figures to U.S. dollars, but this info does give a strong hint at American pricing, focusing more on the difference between the two than the actual numbers. With the Genesis Coupe priced at $24,250 here, look for at least a $1,000 increase, putting the MSRP at just over the $25,000 mark.
