The Scion FR-S is a re-branded version of the Toyota 86 2+2 sports car jointly produced by Toyota and Subaru from 2012 through 2016.
In North America, the FR-S was initially marketed under Toyota's Scion brand, with its name originated from a summary of the platform: Front-engine, Rear-wheel drive, Sport. Scion adopted a clear "pure price" sales model that avoided traditional factory choices in support of fixed pricing and customer customization via dealer-installed accessories.
Because of the abandonment of the Scion brand, in 2016 the FR-S was re-branded as the Toyota 86 for the 2017 model year and beyond.
The Scion FR-S comes in a single trim level. It's powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine rated at 200 hp and 151 pound-feet of torque. It comes paired to either the standard six-speed manual transmission or the optional six-speed automatic with paddle shifters.
