The mythical FT-86 to oficially be badged as a Scion.......

Toyota unveiled the 67th version of the FT-86 concept at the NYAS yesterday as the Scion FR-S. Can't say I'm surprised about this, but it would be nice if they could finally say...."So this is what it WILL look like...and here are the official specs." Until they do......I call shenanigans.

From Jalopnik: Scion FR-S Concept is so hot we can taste it

After the most difficult gestation since someone decided "Spiderman" needed to be a musical, the Scion FR-S Concept finally appeared at the New York Auto Show, carrying the hopes for a true compact rear-wheel-drive sports car — actually coated in candy.

The latest iteration of the Toyota-Subaru joint venture known as the FT-86 appeared with a body that makes a pledge to uphold Toyota chief Akio Toyoda's pledge to put some passion back into the company's vehicles. Blunt, smooth and compact, yet with the long hood of a proper rear-wheel-drive car, the FR-S should easily be the most handsome Scion ever when a production version appears within a year.

Toyota only revealed partial information about the heart of the FR-S, saying it would sport a 2.0-liter boxer engine of unspecified power tweaked with a Toyota direct injection system, paired with six-speed transmissions of either manual or automatic stirring.

It's such an attractive car — the kind of sports coupe forgotten in a rush to fuel savings — that we could almost taste it. Apparently it would taste pretty sweet, according to this line from the press release: "The FR-S Concept is layered in rich coats of Code Red, the appropriately named color that consists of a custom blend of candy and a developmental additive from BASF called Mearlite SSQ."

Scion. First with cars you want to lick.

Candy is the perfect word to describe that paint. Jury is still out on the car, however. If they keep showing it over and over, albeit different iterations, before it is released...it's going to be like the release of the Volt... "Hey. There's the Volt. Ooh a penny."

I wish they kept it in the Toyota name. Other than that I still cannot wait for this thing to hit the showrooms.

Way too sporty to release as a scion.
