Eight-Six Awakening

One of the more exciting new concepts at the 2011 New York International Auto Show belongs to the Toyota group, as Scion, the youthful brand of Toyota, revealed the FR-S, a new concept car derived from the FT-86.

The compact rear wheel drive sports coupe is in line with Akio Toyoda's vision to put back some excitement into the Toyota family; something that has been lacking in the brand for the last decade or so. The new Scion FR-S signals the continuation of the vision, with the production model likely to come with a boxer engine, rear wheel drive, direct injection and a variety of 6-speed transmissions.

There is no word yet as to when the production model of the FR-S and other FT-86 derivatives may come, but rest assured, we will bring then to you as soon as we get news of them.
