Scion FR-S Speedster - Just a dream?
Scion and Subaru teamed up to develop a new sports car. The Scion version is known as the FR-S. Now Toyota has introduced an open top version, at this time only a one-off, the FR-S Speedster. It will be on display and act as the Grand Marshall vehicle at the 38th Annual Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach IZOD Indy Car Race.
Shades of the MR2-Spyder only better! I'm not usually a drop-top guy but please Scion, make it real. The Scion FR-S Speedster is one cool car. Here's the specs of the one-off:
