Scion FR-S: First Drive

If Scion sold cars like drug dealers sold drugs, they'd be giving away little bits of the FR-S in baggies to everyone they see. They'd have local news channels running panic stories on the "Scion FR-S problem." Keith Richards would be trying to snort one off Anita Pallenberg's naked behind. Yes, it's just that easy to… » 4/25/12 12:00am 4/25/12 12:00am

Toyota GT 86 is the production version of the FT-86

After a freaking eternity of teasers and concepts, we've now learned the Toyota FT-86 will be called the Toyota GT 86 when it debuts at next week's Tokyo Motor Show and goes on sale next year (it'll supposedly be called the Scion FR-S here). You didn't think they'd call it the FT-86, did ya? » 11/26/11 9:03pm 11/26/11 9:03pm

The 197 HP Scion FR-S is the new Mazda Miata

The Scion FR-S / Toyota FT-86 gets talked about as a Mustang Killer and competition for the Hyundai Genesis and other muscle cars. It really isn't, although maybe the Subaru BRZ will be. But new specs from FT86club make it clear this car will actually compete directly with the Mazda Miata/MX-5, even if it's never… » 11/03/11 2:30pm 11/03/11 2:30pm

Toyota FT-86 will conquer beige with TRD performance parts

"Will TRD offer aftermarket performance gear for the Toyota FT-86 / Scion FR-S?" That's the second most obvious question on the minds of Toyota/Scion fans after "will it be a car." The answer is yes on both counts. Get used to hearing that word, yes, because Toyota's apparently on a beige-busting binge. » 11/02/11 10:00am 11/02/11 10:00am

Subaru BRZ STI concept gives first look at Subieyota

This bright blue backside belongs to the Subaru BRZ, Subie's variant of the Scion FR-S — or Toyota FT-86, depending on where you live. It's the right end to show given it's Subaru's first modern RWD sports car. » 11/01/11 8:45am 11/01/11 8:45am

Scion FR-S: All the specs

Our friends over at FT86Club got their hands on a Toyota FT-86 / Scion FR-S / Subaru BRZ training sheet and we finally have a look at the specs of the most anticipated sports car in a long time. Just expect some aspects to get lost in translation coming over the Pacific as a Scion FR-S. » 10/31/11 12:30pm 10/31/11 12:30pm

Scion FR-S: This is it?

It appears that images of the Toyota FT-86 — or, as we'll be calling it here in the United States, the Scion FR-S — the car the super number one best automaker from the land of the rising sun claims is the spiritual successor to the AE86, have again leaked from the sieve known as Japanese buff books. » 10/29/11 10:00am 10/29/11 10:00am

Toyota FT-86: This is it?

These brochure scans of what appear to be a final production model of the Toyota FT-86 / Scion FR-S may finally show what the real car looks like and end the protracted concept car nightmare parade. Maybe. Sort of. Hopefully. Do you like it? » 10/27/11 8:45am 10/27/11 8:45am

The Toyota FT-86 is the perpetual concept car

Would coverage of a modern motor show be complete without Toyota’s ever tantalizing FT-86? Impossible. Here, then, is the car in its latest state as a FT-86 II — colored red. It’s pretty and, of course, it’s still not real. » 9/13/11 11:15am 9/13/11 11:15am

Watch the Scion FR-S/Toyota FT-86 test its massive wing

There's now video of the Scion FR-S/Toyota FT-86 RWD sports coupe with the interesting bodykit. It was spied testing the massive wing out on German public roads. It didn't fly off the ground so it must be working. » 5/20/11 10:45am 5/20/11 10:45am

Scion FR-S/FT-86 caught sportin' massive wing

One version of the Toyobaru, a.k.a. Scion FR-S-cum-Toyota FT-86-ne-Subaru 216a, will feature a gigantic wing if spy photos from the 'Ring are to be believed. We're down with downforce but this is a tiny bit ridiculous. » 5/18/11 9:30am 5/18/11 9:30am

Scion FR-S is the new Toyota FT-86

Our concerns over the Toyota FT-86 becoming the Scion FR-S numbered two: it would look boring and it would still cost too much. These first pictures of the FR-S show we don't have to worry about the first part. » 4/20/11 8:30am 4/20/11 8:30am

The Scion FT-S/FT-86 sports car is real

A rumored Toyota FT-86-like model for the company's baby brand, possibly called the Scion FR-S/FT-S, will debut in New York on April 20th. Another concept version of the same car. Yeah! » 4/13/11 2:00pm 4/13/11 2:00pm

Toyota FT-86 II Concept continues turning balls blue

The Toyota FT-86 will eventually add to the Toyota lineup the dose of fun long missing. Until then, here's some more video and images of them teasing you with the FT-86 II Concept. » 3/25/11 10:00am 3/25/11 10:00am

Toyota FT-86 II Concept: Oh, what a Supra feeling!

We just saw the second version of Toyota's FT-86 concept, conveniently dubbed the "Toyota FT-86 II Concept" — and here's the live photos of the new Toyobaru. » 3/01/11 3:54am 3/01/11 3:54am

Toyota FT-86 II upskirt in Geneva

The day before a major auto show, the guys setting up the displays own the show floor, although as a group, camera-toting media earlybirds comprise a close second. Here's the already-teased Toyota FT-86 II under its sheet. How's your imagination? » 2/28/11 4:30pm 2/28/11 4:30pm

Toyota FT-86 II Is The New Toyota FT-86

Toyota released this teaser of the new Toyota FT-86 II, a near-production version of the Toyota FT-86 RWD sports car with a less aggressive grille. The "II" makes us think the actual Toyota FT-86 will have a non-alphanumeric name. » 1/26/11 9:30am 1/26/11 9:30am

Toyota FT-86 Logo Shows Off Boxer Engine

The upcoming rear-wheel-drive Toyota FT-86 was developed in collaboration with Subaru, and it's been said all along the car would sport a 2.0-liter flat-four. We guess if this purported FT-86 logo is accurate, doubters should put those worries to rest. » 12/23/10 12:00pm 12/23/10 12:00pm

Scion FR-S Is The New Toyota FT-86

The Toyota FT-86 may not be the vehicle to save Toyota from itself, as sources report the vehicle will be branded in the U.S. as the Scion FR-S, cost $25,000, and get a boring redesign. But wait, it's worse! » 10/11/10 1:00pm 10/11/10 1:00pm
