Everyone Is Wrong About Subaru BRZ And Scion FR-S Sales

The Subaru BRZ and Scion FR-S are The Cars We Demanded, but lately everyone thinks they're The Cars No One Is Buying. But do they really deserve that reputation? I did some digging, and I don't think Toyobaru sales are worth freaking out over yet. » 3/11/14 9:30am 3/11/14 9:30am

Keep Buying The Scion FR-S And Its Siblings If You Want A Faster One

Of course you remember the Scion FR-S. It and its Subaru BRZ twin were all we were talking about in 2012. Well, based on comments from Toyota people and the sales figures, seems like we might've forgotten. » 2/20/14 2:20pm 2/20/14 2:20pm

Can't you just see yourself flying sideways down some glorious back road with the wind in your hair in your convertible Scion FR-S, aka the FT-86 Open? There's just one problem: Subaru won't build it. But here in the U.S., Scion may do it themselves. » 1/22/14 5:30pm 1/22/14 5:30pm

Regular Car Reviews Asks If The FR-S And BRZ Will Save Us All

"Save us, FR-S! Save us from ourselves! Save us from mundanes! Save us from front-wheel drive! Save us from bootleg Type R stickers!" Our friend at Regular Car Reviews sums up all that is expected of the Toyobaru twins. But do these two cars really have what it takes to be our saviors? » 1/20/14 10:20am 1/20/14 10:20am

The Subaru Cross Sport Design Is The BRZ Shooting Brake Of Our Dreams

I now have additional proof that Subaru executives are sneaking into my house at night and reading my dream journal: They debuted what is essentially a BRZ shooting brake at the Tokyo Motor Show. Let me say that again just to be clear: BRZ. Shooting. Brake. » 11/20/13 9:26am 11/20/13 9:26am

The Toyota FT-86 Open Concept Looks Damn Good In Red

Technically, the FT-86 Open Concept that's on display this week at the Tokyo Motor Show is nothing new. There's only one big difference between this car and the one that debuted at the Geneva show earlier this year: it's red. But here, that makes all the difference. » 11/05/13 12:20pm 11/05/13 12:20pm

Awful Scion FR-S Sedan Photoshop Creates Dubai Motor Show Mystery

A four-door Scion FR-S is coming. Maybe. If Subaru gives it the thumbs up, anyway. But a Facebook post over the weekend has led some to believe it may appear as soon as the Dubai Motor Show this week. Or was it just a mysterious social media screw-up? » 11/04/13 12:01pm 11/04/13 12:01pm

What Could These Mysterious Toyobaru Patents Mean?

The Toyobaru! I love it and so do you, but we're all pining for a version with more power in addition to that delectable handling. Now some mysterious patent drawings have cropped up that make us wonder if something special is in the cards. » 10/08/13 1:16pm 10/08/13 1:16pm

500 Horsepower Is An Appropriate Amount Of Power For A Subaru BRZ

Crawford Performance builds fast Subarus. That's what they do. So when the BRZ and its paltry 200 horsepower entered the shop, they blew it out to 500. Then they gave it to another man familiar with that number: $500 rally car ace Bill Caswell. This is what it can do on track. » 9/26/13 12:13pm 9/26/13 12:13pm
