    Who's getting one? I can't wait for this car the be release. I want a fun car to drive and stay with Toyota brands. I love the way this car looks. Gotta say its the best looking Scion yet.

    Should be a fun ride. If I remember correctly, will be a Subaru boxer 4 with about 200 hp and 150 lb ft torque with low lbs and RWD... Subaru will be using the same platform but, will be a little more upscale...if memory is correct.

    Looks too good to be a scion. The aftermarket for that thing is gonna go crazy.

    So that's the final product of the Subbie/Toyota team up? That's cool I've liked it since they made it a prototype. I thought it was going to be a 3rd(?) gen Celica? Either way I'd buy one.

    Looks great. Too bad it only has 200hp.

    Everywhere else, yes. But for the US market it's a Scion.

    It's probably not all that heavy so 200hp will probably do it justice. I think you can put some serious boost pressure into a stock Subaru motor anyway.

    Yeah you can put pressure to a boxer engine built for pressure but if it is a NA then the high compression pistons won't allow for too much pressure.

    I think it will be a pretty neat car. Supposedly it has a lower center of gravity than a Ferrari Enzo, so handling should be good.

    Edit: I meant the 458 Italia, not Enzo.

    Ya the FR-S is pretty sick. My GF drives a tC so she really wants one of these, and quite frankly, I wouldnt mind driving it on occasion either!
