Subject: 2013MY Scion FR-S Price Announcement


Scion is pleased to announce the starting price of $24,200 for the highly awaited 2013MY Scion.

FR-S which will arrive at Scion dealerships in June. Even with DPH, the starting price is still under $25,000!

2013MY Scion FR-S Highlights:
This high performance sports car is the fifth model to join the Scion family. Inspired by the
Toyota AE86, FR-S is designed around the core goal of achieving, “Pure Balance.” This
balance begins with the use of the world’s only front-engine, rear-wheel drive configuration
using a flat boxer engine.
Some of the great standard features on FR-S include:
• 2.0 liter, 200 horsepower, naturally aspirated four-cylinder boxer engine
• Toyota’s cutting edge D-4S injection system with direct and port
injection
• 6-speed manual transmission that offers quick precise shifts with a short
throw
• 6-speed automatic transmission with rev-match and steering-wheel
mounted paddle shifters
• Torque Sensing Limited Slip Differential
• 17-inch alloy wheels and ventilated disc brakes
FR-S’s interior ****pit instantly exudes a “sports car” feel. The front sports seats are shaped to
accommodate manual shifting and support longitudinal and lateral G-force. The leather
wrapped 3-spoke sports steering wheel, utilizes the smallest diameter in the Scion lineup.
The idea of “Pure Balance” is further realized by FR-S’s lightweight design and compact size.
This allows the car to be quick and nimble into and out of corners. This combination is further
proof that Scion is truly “Bringing the Sport Back to the Car.”
The FR-S will be available in seven colors including Raven, Asphalt, Hot Lava, Argento,
Ultramarine, Firestorm and Whiteout.

Pricing Summary Documents:
MSRP for the FR-S six-speed manual and six-speed sequential automatic transmissions are $24,200 and $25,300 respectively.

Model Transmission Description 2013 Base
MSRP
6253 6MT FA20 $24,200
6252 6AT FA20 $25,300

All prices listed above exclude the Delivery, Processing, and Handling (DPH) fee
Pricing will be announced to the public on Thursday, March 22, 2012. Please keep this
information confidential until Thursday, March 22, 2012. Pricing details will be available in
the Scion FR-S Price Guides posted in the “Secure Area” for Dealer Principals on Dealer Daily.
Please contact your Regional Office or local administrator if you have any questions.

*Update*
Looks like the Destination Charge is going to be $730.

That definitely makes it legit!! hehe (don't take offense, just teasing)



hmm, this is a little higher than I'd like. I wonder how this impacts the BRZ pricing. If the BRZ comes in at 25k like the rumors seem to say, then... no one will buy the FR-S. But most likely, we'd just see the BRZ be more like 26k/28k.

Too high. Puts the base BRZ even higher than anticipated; no good.

As far as I remember when it came to car purchases, AT were always more expensive than MT.

With number of manual 3er's out there, you'd think they were optional.

I'm not going to believe it yet. If it's true, that will be a bit disappointing considering that it isn't noticeably cheaper than the upcoming 2013 GC.

Sounds believable, undercuts 2013 gen coup (barely), after all is said and done the out of pocket expense is over 27K, way to high for me but ill bet the broader market will accept it. Veloster turbo just started looking slightly better.

500 too high imo. Hopefully the Brz will be 25400/27400 but I'm starting to grow doubtful.
