Buy the first FRS!
 
The Very First Scion FR-S Sold In The US Can Now Be Yours

The owner of the very first 2013 Scion FR-S sold in the US has put the special vehicle up for auction on Cars & Bids. As of this writing, the highest bid is $12,500, and the gavel falls on September 21 at 2:00pm EDT.

The car has a Whiteout exterior and black interior with red accents. The owner has performed a few modifications over the years, like adding a window tint, short-throw shifter, and aftermarket light bulbs. The FR-S has spent its entire life in California.

The odometer shows just 48,700 miles, which is remarkably low for a performance car from the 2013 model year. The only flaws that the seller mentions in the listing are rock chips on the hood and front bumper, the bumper separating from the headlight, and scrapes on the rear bumper.

The car came with lots of special goodies as the first FR-S to be delivered in this country, like a carbon fiber license plate frame, RC car, a car cover, and various pieces of paperwork. The seller is including all of these things in the sale.

The FR-S and its close sibling the Subaru BRZ were big deals when they arrived. There hadn't been a rear-drive, vaguely affordable performance car available from a Toyota brand since the demise of the MR2 Spyder in the 2007 model year. Subaru had never had a model like that in its American lineup...

I must say that is pretty cool

I think the owner was on this site early on. Several of the first FR-S owners were.

I ordered mine the day they went on sale in 2012 and took delivery around June 8, 2012 making mine one of the first delivered in Canada.

I have the same mileage, plus an HKS blower, Ohlin's, brakes, wheels tires, etc. Still probably worth less than that one

It has spent its entire life in California. Meaning it definitely had the recall done :'( Poor thing.

I'd still buy it if I didn't have my own, it'd be one of the greatest honors.

which recall?

I bought my 2016 used a while back and it was likely done too

I wonder what Five Axis Designs had to do with it. I almost bought their Scion tC gen 1 concept after they were getting rid of it. Troy has an awesome company. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/202...79bd467f02.jpg

The second concept had a 5:AD body kit on it iirc.

The 2016s didn't have the valve spring recall.

Looks just like mine, except mine is in better shape - except for the big dent in the rear bumper.
