The research I have done makes it look like the 0-60 and 1/4 are faster.

http://www.motortrend.com/roadtests/coupes/1204_2013_scion_fr_s_first_test/viewall.html
0-60 6.2
QUARTER MILE 14.8 sec @ 94.3 mph

http://www.zeroto60times.com/Toyota-0-60-mph-Times.html Not sure on the accuracy
1990 Toyota Celica All-Trac
0-60 mph 7.4
Quarter mile 15.5


I would expect the FR-S to be a little faster since there is less drivetrain lost and it has newer tech, but, still doesnt make it better :) The FR-S is just a sexy bitch!

I think they have a lot of potential. I do wish there was an option to buy a more powerful model without having to mod it. This might be a car I consider in a few years if I want something else to play with and don't end up in a 4-door.

Great car for the ladies or a daily grinder.... Personally my GTO daily grinder dominates them in every aspect and for less. Unless you plan on doing alot of upgrades I just dont see the point for the price.

Guess its a matter of preference. I love the GTO, but would never own one. Too big for my taste. I like small cars.

I imagine the GTO wasnt as cheap new. 30k?

I had a ride in a 6 liters 500Hp+ GTO, this summer. Man, that was insane! So much power, not so much traction... Just wanted to share! :shock:

That looks a bit better, but still not that good.

Very true. If we are speaking new prices they were in the 30s.

I see where they were going with it.. Only 2700 pounds and RWD. Hell the GTO is 1k pounds heavier than that!! In todays sports car world the power numbers are high. If only it was turbo and atleast 300hp. That would be a sweet little car.

Not feeling those rims. They could do much, much better.

Love the new 86 platform, but I am really not sure about the boxer layout, Subaru reliability is`far from being excellent. Also, working on them is such a pain. I would rather have a FR-S with a beams 3SGE... Now this would have been much more interesting. Sure CG would`ve been a bit higher but nothing too dramatic.. .

They have put 2JZs in already, so a Beams shouldn't be too much of a problem? Should fit behind the axle, S2K style!

With a BEAMS 3S I'd be selling my kidneys to buy one!
