Wanna bet the FRS will become the GT86 again for the American market?

Scion Gone?

So supposedly scion is closing up shop? what does this mean for the future for our cars?

Would value for the frs go up since it was only produced for about four years?

Are we going to be ultra rare cars now?

Just read it as well. Sales for the frs were down 25% in 2015 and scion only sold a few cars.

Very interesting to think of the future of our FR-S now. Will it become a Toyota? Disappear? Will the Scion version be rare and desirable in 20 years or long and forgotten as everyone has the Toyota.

In a way I'm sad but, i kinda am happy that maybe the scion version will be rare or something and maybe in years the scion version will be the more sought after version of this car. Maybe just maybe?
