Exclamation First Spy Pics of Scion FR-S / Toyota FT-86 Production Test Mule! (Updated 5/17)

We bring you the first photosof the latest Scion FR-S / Toyota FT-86 production test mule! It compares most closely to the FT-86 II Concept car rather than the recently revealed Scion FR-S.

What’s curious is that it wears 17″ Subaru/Enkei wheels.

I think it's production version of Mk2. Look at the rear wing. I notice that the head and taillight look a bit bland when they translate into production car.

Production car are always "neutered" from the concept/prototypes shown off. Concepts are just that, a concept. Used to gain interest in the car, show off what they can do...etc. Much of that won't be put into production due to cost and not being feasible on a budget car.

Too early to judge. The jewel is inside the camo.

Edit: at least, they get rid of LED and front vents from mark 2.

Those are certainly Subaru wheels, I have a set on my forester. The spoiler and the door handles also have a Subaru look to them.

Some of you were really expecting too much after seeing Five Axis' custom FR-S. But this is looking good to me. My only complaint so far is aimed at those stupid portals next to the mirrors. I think those belong on minivans. I really dislike seeing them on cars. Oh well. It can't be helped at this point.

Yes, you're correct. They're Subaru/Enkei 17 w 215/40/17. Along w brakes, few stuff too.

Those wheels are a really high offset for a RWD car. Although it looks like there's a lot of space between them and the edge of the fender. Could they not find some wheels that actually fit on the car for the test mule?
