About Scion FR-S

Inspired by the Toyota Corolla GT-S sport coupe of the mid -80s, Scion FR-S was jointly developed by a renowned Japanese automotive manufacturer Toyota Motor Corporation and a same famous Japanese transportation conglomerate Subaru Corporation's automobile manufacturing division - Subaru but solely manufactured by Subaru from 2012 to 2016 as a sports car exclusively for the United States and Canada markets. "FR-S" in its name derives from Front-engine, Rear-wheel drive, Sport. But due to the Scion brand was discontinued in August 2016, the FR-S was renamed as the Toyota 86 ever since though before that it won Best Affordable Sports Car and Car and Driver Magazine's Top Ten Best Cars.
Similar to the Subaru BRZ, Scion FR-S came with only one single trim level offered with Scion's BeSpoke stereo system. But for the 2014 model year, "10 Series" FR-S models were released to commemorate the 10th Anniversary of the Scion marque as well as "Monogram Series" and "Release Series 1.0". During its lifetime, FR-S was powered by a 2.0 L inline 4-cylinder engine rated at 200 horsepower and 151 pound-feet of torque. Power flowed to the rear wheels through a standard 6-speed manual transmission or an available 6-speed automatic with steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters.
