Went on Scion.com just to check up on it and they included a link to the March issue of Motortrend featuring the 2013 Scion Fr-S and article about it.

just saw that too about 30 min ago. Not much news there except they are guessing a $25k price.

I think I bought that issue about a month ago. There's another article in there on the FRS/BRZ too. I think got a goofy title, something like the Miata's Brother from Another Mother.

I read this when it came out. I got free subscription from LA Auto Show.

Anyways, the next page after these is the BRZ. Entitled, "... Brother from Another Motha".

Pretty sweet article. Mostly just about differences between BRZ/FRS and how the drive was around the track. The fact that he fell in love after 4 laps.

I just wish there was an everyday news on the FR-Z

You're right. I knew I should've looking in the magazine before I posted, it was sitting right next to me after all!

There's yet another article in that issue called "The Miata Coupe*" * Not build by Mazda.

http://blogs.motortrend.com/the-miat...zda-19869.html

I think I was combining the two articles together in my head

Not a review or a test in anyway.. Just another paid ad. Very typical Motortrend. 25k is about 5k too much for the Scion..

I wonder why Toyota/Subaru will not let anyone do a full test?....

I read that, just a little bit of work and I think I can drop that by 6 seconds.




But seriously I'd like mine going 0-60 in as close to 4 flat as possible.

The suspense. The drama. Must prolong.
