The Toyota FT-86/Scion FR-S/Subaru BRZ cars have all been introduced before over the past year, but the 2012 NAIAS was the first opportunity many people had to see the new RWD sports coupe twins side by side. Well, not really side by side since the Scion and Subaru displays were in different parts of Cobo Halls big floor, but close enough to get 3D photos and video of both cars so you can compare them side by side here. We’ll start off with the Scion FR-S, how Toyota has decided to market their twin in North America, apparently to boost the brand, which has never quite met their sales expectations. Scion was supposed to be the brand for young people fast and furious to customize their cars for hot import nights. That never quite happened. The xB was a success with older folks, at least the trim 1st gen xB. The FR-S is being deliberately offered without all sorts of electronic gizmos and nannies so maybe the tuner crowd will warm to it. With FT-86 chief engineer Tetsuya Tada suggesting that Toyota itself may work with Porsche to develop other boxer engines more powerful than the 200 HP Subaru built engine in the FT-86, and saying it in the context of people putting LSx V8s in Mazda Miata, it won’t be too long before some tuner puts a flat-six Porsche turbo in a FT-86/FR-S/BRZ. BTW, when I say “exclusive” I don’t mean you can only find these particular photos here. As far as I can determine, these are the only 3D photos of the Scion FR-S that are available anywhere.
