Scion FR-S teaser

The Scion FR-S is a concept car from Scion that was revealed at the New York Auto Show in April of 2011. It’s a sports car and the FR-S apparently stands for Front-engine, Rear-wheel drive, Sport. The idea behind the FR-S is to achieve what Scion is calling “pure balance”. It features a light-weight design and a short wheelbase to make it more agile around corners. The powertrain is mounted lower and gives it a lower center of gravity and a favorable front-to-rear weight ratio. It’s supposed to be an homage to the AE-86 Corolla. The video above shows off the car and features the Scion VP Jack Hollis. It’s a little hammy just to warn you.
