I'm not much of a car enthusiast but I don't see Scion DNA in this at all. I've always associated the Scion with the consumer who wants a car with a good balance of style and flexibility, at a decent price. I don't see that in this concept.
I'd rather fail than to have never tried

The Scion variant of the AE86, the joint-Subaru/Toyota car that probably won't see production. Rear wheel drive though. Could be a 1-series eater.

FR-S seems to include all the requisite elements for street racy-ness, big obnoxious diffuser, deep wide fenders, loud graphics front and rear. Doesn't seem to fit the Scion brand in that all the modding looks completed, rather than starting with a vanilla car and letting the consumer add fiberglass.

I used to think, why can't they make cheap cars look like cool sports cars, but now I get it. Do you pay extra for door handles?

mrtwills: Good one hehe:)

What surprises me is how far this is from the '86.

The '86 had a geeky modernism about it. It was a kid with a pocket protector that could run a marathon. This thing looks like the kid that picked on him. Obnoxious, brutish, flashy.

I think Scion has always been (tried to be) a more rebellious youth brand. I think this car fits pretty well with that. It's small, styling is on the provocative side, and there's lots of room for more spoilers. The rear skirt is a little much even for me, but I like this.

"Obnoxious, brutish, flashy" Niiiiice. :)

I love it.
Much better than their previous "AE86 inspired" concepts.
Considering it's styling among the current Mazda3 and Genesis coupe, I am relieved that Toyota is actually paying attention. I was beginning to think that they were turning into Subaru.

I think they did a great job. It's a boy racer ride through and through. If I was 18-22, I would have wanted this.

I'm 27 and want this, but if the Toyota FT-86 or Scion fr-s do not come out, well then I'm just going to use the money I saved up to get a aircooled 911 (or bmw z3 m coupe)

It looks great in person. Not nearly as tacked together as in the photos. A real baby Maserati GT.

has all the characteristics of a sports compact home run

affordable, light weight, RWD, well balanced (engine placed further back behind axle), low C.G. (boxer), direct injection, and no shortage of factory backed performance upgrads (STI and TRD) among other aftermarket supports

Other than a bit too busy up front, this side profile view is beautiful. Especially if they are going to soften/smoothen up the fender curves.

They are making slow progress, but in a good direction.
