Scion has just unveiled eight cars at the 2013 SEMA Preview Event today. Among them are several FR-S models.

Check out some first pics INSIDE.

Subaru has revealed its BRZ Premium Sport Edition for Japan. The special edition BRZ includes a host of cosmetic upgrades.

The exterior features a variety of possible body paint schemes, 17-inch black alloy STI wheels, and black side mirrors. The interior sees a two-tone leather-wrapped steering wheel and seats, as well as alcantara trim through various parts of the cockpit. Tan leather is used for the doors and black leather with tan stitching on the gearbox and handbrake levers.

Other parts upgraded include STI start button, aluminum pedals, silver accents and a carbon fiber trim on the dashboard.

The BRZ Premium Sport Edition will go on sale in Japan at the end of the year, at a starting price of 3,034,500 yen (approximately 31,000 USD / 22,600 EUR / 19,300 GBP).

Still confused about what the actual differences are between the Scion FR-S and Subaru BRZ? An FT86CLUB member has put together this great video explaining them all.

While we wait for that to happen, have a look at some digital artists’ idea of what a FR-S/BRZ sedan could look like.
