Scion introduced the FR-S Sports Coupe Concept at the 2011 New York Auto Show. This new sport concept from Toyota’s Scion division features rear-wheel drive and a flat 2.0-liter boxer engine utilizing Toyota’s D4-S direct and port injection systems.
The FR-S Concept, which stands for Front-engine, Rear-wheel drive, Sport; is Scion’s definition of an authentic rear-wheel-drive sports car with compelling style, exceptionally balanced performance and handling, flexible utility and surprising MPG.
The flat-four can mate with either a six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic transmission. The manual offers quick and precise shifts with a short-throw, while the automatic transmission features aggressive, sporty shifts that are initiated by steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters. Power is distributed effectively via a limited-slip differential.
