    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.

    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.

    I agree with keeping the toyota name. I would feel like a 17 year old if i drove a scion...even though im just 21.

    Way too sporty to release as a scion.

    looks like a genesis almost. I'd drive it. Should be released as a Toyota though
