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.

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

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
