October 12, 2012

If you want to know where a car like the Scion FR-S comes from, you don't have to look farther than the 1970 Datsun 240Z,1978 Mazda RX-7, 1982 Porsche 944, and 1989 Nissan 240SX.

Sooner or later, everyone wants a sporty car with a roof. But it also has to be relatively cheap. and that's how the Datsun, Mazda, Porsche and Nissan each reinvigorated interest in sporty cars at a time when car enthusiasm seemed to be dead.
