Scion FR-S Release Series 1.0 Coming this Fall

Scion FR-S Release Series 1.0 Coming this Fall

Scion is readying an even hotter version of its FR-S and it’ll be arriving this fall.

Following in the footsteps of other Scion models, the FR-S will get its Release Series 1.0 model later this year and with it will be a unique Yuzu-colored exterior (as in, bright yellow) complemented with HID headlights and LED Daytime Running Lights. On the inside, the FR-S will benefit from dual-zone automatic climate control, a Smart key with Push Button Start and TRD shifter-plate with a sequentially-numbered TRD badge.

The Scion FR-S RS 1.0 will be prepared at the TRD factory and will come equipped with a TRD Aero Kit with spoiler, TRD lowering springs and a quad-tip exhaust system from TRD. In addition, the interior will gain a leather-trimmed steering wheel and shift knob. Like other RS vehicles in Scion’s lineup, the FR-S RS 1.0 will be limited to just 1,500 units.

Expect more info including pricing and availability later this year.

    Not a single performance upgrade. When will scion learn?

  • Rickers

    Apparently never.

    I’ve given up on this car and this Fall when I’m ready to buy I’m going to get something else.

    Really frustrating because this car, in my opinion, really only needs a little more power/torque – the rumored 2.5 litre would have been perfect.

    It needs to be recalled FT-86 under the Toyota banner for the US!

    It really does look like Toyota made a mistake naming it a Scion. I think the idea was that it would save the Scion brand… but that doesn’t seem to be working.

  • ColumWood

    I totally agree! A turbo would probably be too much and it could ruin the feel of the car, but a larger NA engine would be perfect!
