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.

Toyota FT 86 Open Is The FR-S Roadster You Can't Buy Yet

But when it does, watch out, Miata.

Not every vehicle coming to the Geneva Motor Show is a high-horsepower wonder that costs as much as a house. Case in point: The Toyota FT 86 Open Concept, which is pretty much a dead ringer for the all-but-inevitable convertible roadster of the Scion FR-S.

Scion FR-S Roadster Coming To, Yup, Geneva

Will car makers leave anything for the New York show?

It was only a matter of time before Toyota and/or Subaru trotted out an open-top version of the FR-S/BRZ/FT-86/GT 86/86.

0-60's 18 Favorite Cars Of 2012

Many will enter, some will win.

This article also appears on our sister website rides-mag.com, hence the watermarks.

Story: Michael Crenshaw and Will Sabel Courtney

We're lucky enough to drive a lot of new cars every year. One of the perks of the job. (Actually, the biggest perk of the job.) So this year, we thought we'd celebrate what's been a good year in fun cars by compiling a list of our 10 favorite vehicles we drove this year. Which then escalated to 12 cars. Then 15. Then, ultimately, 18. We could have done more, but we had to draw the line somewhere, and it is the week before Christmas, so we've had a lot to do.

Anyway, please click through the gallery above and enjoy at your leisure. Happy holidays to all of you, and thanks for being such loyal fans of 0-60! We appreciate it more than you know.
