Official Scion FR-S Concept

Toyota and Subaru’s joint partnership in which a rear-wheel-drive sports car is being developed has shown itself a third member. Following Toyota’s FT-86 II concept in Geneva earlier this year, and Subaru’s intensions to create the same, the Scion FR-S Concept is the third in the line-up. The FR-S Concept will inspire a new model coming to the Scion brand next year.

The FR-S Concept stands for Front-engine, Rear-wheel drive, Sport. The naturally aspirated 2.0-liter Boxer flat-four can mate with either a six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic transmission. The manual offers shifts with a short-throw, while the automatic transmission features shifts that are initiated by steering- wheel-mounted paddle shifters. Power is distributed via a limited-slip differential.

The FT-S rides on sharp 20 inch wheels, hiding an absolutely monstrous set of 18 inch carbon ceramic brake rotors that are fixed to the wheels like a motorcycle.
