Scion has announced it will show its new FR-S sports car to the public at the Detroit Auto Show next week. The new flagship vehicle for the youth-oriented brand, the FR-S is essentially a rebadged version of the Toyota GT 86 (or just Toyota 86), which will go on sale in other markets later this year.

Powered by a 200-hp 2.0-liter boxer 4-cylinder engine with direct injection it can be had with either a 6-speed manual or six-speed automatic.

Weighing just 2,700 lbs, it boasts a 53/47 weight distribution and a center of gravity that is among the lowest of any production car.
