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.

    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
