Scion FR-S Lets us Hear Its Boxer Exhaust Note [Video]

The Scion FR-S, née Toyota FT-86 II Concept, Subaroyota, etc, finally gets a chance to open up its pipes for us in this exclusive video.

The Scion evolution of the long-teased Toyota concept was shown at the New York Auto Show, but this is the first time it’s actually been turned on. Scion has said that under the hood is a Subaru-sourced 4-cylinder boxer engine, mated to a Toyota direct-injection system.

Now that we know there’s an actual drivetrain under that cherry red paint, it shows that Toyota is one step closer to actually putting it into production. And just think: maybe in about 10 years, they’ll actually get around to, you know, building the thing.

Click the jump to hear the Scion FR-S start up and rev itself. And don’t set your expectations very high.
