The folks over at Toyota were kind enough to give us a 2015 Scion FR-S for a whole week and it was just dropped off today. We are thrilled to be giving this budget sports cars the full once over and wring it out to it’s full potential.
In the coming weeks, we’ll be writing several pieces on exactly what we think of the FR-S including a full review; initial reactions from some friends, family, and industry people; and a piece on just how utilitarian it truly is. I started a thread on Reddit (r/cars) last week and asked for some user submitted suggestions on what to do with the car. We’ll be doing as many as we humanly can over the course of the next week so stay tuned!
