2013 Scion FR-S Long Term Road Test

2013 Scion FR-S: Origins

July 06, 2012


Back in 2007, Toyota unveiled the FT-HS concept. When I saw it up close, I was struck by its sharp lines and compact, athletic stance. It always seemed to be in the back of my mind.


I see a lot of the FT-HS's underlying form in the FR-S, but the beveled edges have been rounded and smoothed over. I still think the FR-S is an attractive little coupe, but imagine if the FT's lines had survived. Yowzah!
