2013 Scion FR-S
This long-awaited collaboration between Toyota and Subaru is no disappointment. The FR-S is very comfortable on back roads or even at the track thanks to its well-matched Subie flat-four and rear-wheel drive. The 2.0 liter puts out 200 horsepower matched with a six-speed transmission in a package that weighs around 2,800 pounds. The FR-S will do 0-60 in just over six seconds and is no slouch in cornering responsiveness. While the FR-S has stability control, it is more fun with STM turned off for those that can handle a car that has the juice and setup to push the rear-end out if asked to do so. The FR-S is a long awaited bit of automotive passion from the Toyota team who seemed to abandon the sports car market by ending production of the Supra, Celica and MR2. In short: the FR-S signals the return of a proper sports car from Toyota and that return is a welcome one.
