Continuing the trend towards off-road sports cars.

Don't look too closely—the Heisenberg uncertainty principle might kick in if you do and throw the whole thing off—but we think we're seeing the beginnings of a trend towards the off-road sports car.

Scion Might Be Planning FR-S Sedan

Because what every lightweight sports cars needs is more doors.

We're fans of the Scion FR-S here at 0-60. We'd probably be bigger fans of it if we'd driven one with a manual instead of the acceleration- and fun-sucking slushbox, or if it had another 75 pound-feet of torque and 50 horsepower, or if it didn't use a stereo head unit that looks like it was installed by Best Buy back in 2004, but we're still fans of it. It's a lightweight, beautifully-proportioned, incredibly driftable, incredible-handling sports car that sells for around $25,000. How could we not like it?

Toyota GT 86 / Scion FR-S May Find There's No Replacement For Displacement

Toyota's little sports car could get a bigger engine.

The Scion FR-S is a pretty damn impressive little sports car, with a Porsche-worthy chassis and tenacious yet pitchable handling. But if the car has a weakness, it lies beneath that long, low hood. With only 200 horses and 151 lb-ft of torque, the 2.0 liter boxer four Subaru developed for the Toyota GT 86/Scion FR-S/Subaru BRZ is adequate at best—but the car could handle so much more.

SEMA 2012: The Giant Scion FR-S/Subaru BRZ Post

All the Toyobarus at SEMA fit to print. Or, rather, post online.

[gallery]

We weren't particularly surprised to learn that the Scion FR-S and the Subaru BRZ were two of the most popular cars at this year's SEMA show. But we were still a little taken aback by the sheer volume of them in the Las Vegas Convention Center.

Turbo & Roadster Scion FR-S Models Are A No-Go

Apparently we Americans are just too cheap.

The Scion FR-S is one of the few entertaining bright spots in Toyota's dull lineup—indeed, it's one of the most entertaining cars to drive out today, especially when you consider its $25,000 price tag. But it only comes in one version—and as Porsche will happily tell you, the secret to sports car profitability is variants, variants, variants.
