Great gas mileage = low power. There is your confirmation.

Front brake rotors are something like 11.25" or 286mm Dual piston slider calipers are better than one but not very exciting.

Anyone else see what looks to be front headlight washers [the square covers below the headlights]. Also fog lights in the outer bumper polygons with the turn signals, and [gasp] LED DRL's in headlight cluster. Looks to be a projector beam headlight

Also note the mini shark-fin antenna on the roof; no stupid whip antenna!

Kinda ignorant aren't you. The C5 Z06 gets 30 MPG hwy. I've peaked 37 MPG with my Exige S during a road trip.

I think those have been legally required on new cars in europe for a while now. Judging by the plate, that's probably where these pics were taken.

I expected a car that looked amazing, that I could dump a ton of money into to make it fast. Unfortunately they butchered the car. I forgot that it was toyota/scion, I should've known better

Why don't you just keep your Z06 then? The FR-S will never be a straight-line car [DUH!]. It'd be like buying a Miata and expecting to kill at the dragstrip.

Is it just me or does it look similar to an Infiniti g35 coupe?

Yup. If you are going to "dump a ton of money into a car to make it fast" why not just throw a twin turbo kit on a Z06 and get +700hp out of it.

I had no intentions on getting rid of it and if you're implying the z06 is a straight line car, well lol, please do some research

This actually brings up a good point. Scion might be bringing out a more aggressive/"stylized" version of the car than Toyota because of Scion's "image". If that's the case, then the car coming out as a Scion is only good news. But of course, this is probably more of a hope than actual prediction.

What I love about the FR-S is the wide/aggressive fenders and shallower roof line.

It's certainly toned down from the concepts - but they even said at the auto show that the concept represented what an owner might do to mod this car - so everyone should pretty much expect a "blank slate" with good engineering under it so you can modify the cosmetics to taste with aftermarket. That said, I hope the final production version has *some* pizazz to it - maybe a "sport appearance package" with ground effects or something - so we don't have to wait for aftermarket support (poor fitting issues, etc).

Because it's already quick enough. 200 doesn't quite cut it though

Your lotus is an 1800 pound car with, what, 240hp? Sure, that makes anything a straight line car. Congratulations. Unfortunately for you, your lotus would still get slapped around.

a quick (really quick) photoshop interpretation of what we can imagine behind the stickers, the holes on the bumper have disapear i think, it can't be able on the stock car

For the rest, i think it's quite the same thing than the concept but not so agressive, and more realistic





Finally, it will really looks like Celica or Honda RSX, but RWD

I don't like this one bit. I was ready to sell my kidney for the Scion FR-S concept. If this is the FRS, which it will likely be, I will be looking at a use s2000.
