When you think about sports cars, you almost certainly imagine something fast, stylish, and expensive – like Lambo or Aston Martin. However, there are sports cars that are fast and stylish, but not expensive at all. The Scion FR-S, for instance, is exactly like this.
2016 Scion FR-S
The MSRP for the basic Scion FR-S model starts at $27,200 which makes it one of the most affordable sports car on the market. There’s also the Scion FR-S Release Series 2.0 Exclusive Sports Car; the MSRP for it starts at $31,405. Comparing the Subaru BRZ and the Scion FR-S, you may find out that the basic Subaru model is somewhat cheaper.
Scion FR-S’s Generations
Toyota and Subaru have been jointly developing the 2+2 sports coupe since 2008. In 2012, it entered the world market under various names including the Scion FR-S. The car is still in its first generation. This year, Scion has introduced the Scion FR-S Release Series 2.0 Exclusive Sports Car in addition to the basic model.
Scion FR-S’s Future
The Scion marque will be discontinued in August 2016. As to the vehicle itself, it will continue the battle for young customers under two brands – Toyota and Subaru (Subaru sells it under the name Subaru BRZ). Since the Scion’s discontinuation, the Scion FR-S will be sold as the Toyota 86. Toyota has already used this name across the world: in Asia, South Africa, South America, and Australia.
