^ there seems to be no new information that I have seen... With scion now switching over to Toyota I thought the Facelift would be the Toyota version come 2017... but they would have more info about it if the 2017s are starting production August of this year.

You would only be crazy if you Googled it and then thought some clickbait was real.
Somebody has to be the first to find an official announcement maybe it will be you!

The change from Scion is a minor wrinkle in Toyota as far as the FRS goes. That change is not going to effect the announcement or facelift one little bit. It isn't a "Toyota version" coming out it is the same thing with a different badge just like the rest of the world has always been.
It is odd that we haven't seen anything about the Japanese update yet though as it is usually out by now.

I just want to see the new haircut. It will either be the 17 FRS or AP2 S2K.

I'm not sure if this has already been posted and I hate to fuel rumors/skepticism, but this does look rather convincing.

Computer render/photoshoped based up their best guess from the camoed car. Not real pics. Probably pretty good guess though.

It is probably pretty close even if just a best guess.

What does branding as a Toyota have to do with it? If still a Scion it would have looked exactly the same. The FRS doesn't look any different then the 86s around the world now so a badge change won't mean a thing.

tbh just because none of the nice cars toyota makes are branded as toyota in the us doesn't make it less of a good car just because it will now have a toyota badge.
honestly that makes no sense.
that's like saying if the acura nsx became the honda nsx in the usa, they would all be lowered, riced up, have 10 turbochargers, and have shitty gold rims.

I'm saying that rebranding a major market and seeing this spyshot could have a correlation to this redesign reflecting that of Toyotas form factor. To each his own I think I'm just rationalizing why they would take a decent looking car and make it look like....that.
