Limited Scion Monogram Series Brings Premium Features to FR-S [see full details]

From Toyota:

The 2014 Scion FR-S and tC gain premium features with the competitively priced, limited edition Monogram Series™ models on display for the first time at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. The Monogram Series vehicles will be available in dealerships starting in February.

“Through this limited edition Monogram Series, Scion brought together extra comforts and conveniences in the FR-S and tC without sacrificing value,” said Scion Vice President Doug Murtha. “By incorporating these features as standard for a limited time, we provide a great price to go head-to-head with the competition and encourage more drivers to get excited about experiencing a Scion.”

High-end features like Alcantara® inserts in the FR-S and navigation technology in both the FR-S and tC set the Monogram Series apart. Vehicles will be available in all standard body colors and both transmission options. Just 2,000 of these limited FR-S models and 2,500 tC models will be available this year.

FT86CLUB forum member Cjymiller shares this great first track day journal with us, recounting the first day driving his car home from the dealer, to the first time on the track with his BRZ.

The final 2013 sales figures are in for the 86 twins and they were a success by any traditional measurement.

The FR-S sold 18,327 units while the BRZ sold 8,587 units, for a total of 26,914 sold.

Compare this to the first full year sales of rivals cars – the 370Z sold 13,117 units in 2009 and the MX-5 Miata sold 16,897 units in 2006.

FT86CLUB member shawrf1 will once again be attending the Tokyo Auto Salon and bringing to us more of his great photography.

He’s taking requests (in this thread), so if you have any particular cars or items you’d like to see photos of, make yourself heard!

Toyota 86 owner Ryan Lee recently transformed his car into a life size Lightning McQueen 86 for his 3 year old son Lucas. For those unaware, Lightning McQueen is the lead car character from the Cars animated motion picture.

“I actually thought my son would feel really cool if he rode Lightning McQueen to school,” said Lee. We know who should be getting the father-of-the-year award!
