For years now, Toyota enthusiasts have been patiently waiting for the return of the Toyota Supra, a popular sports car produced from 1979 to 2002.
The car has developed a cult following. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like the Supra is going to be rolling out of Toyota’s factories anytime soon.
On the bright side, Toyota recently released the Scion FR-S/Subaru BRZ. This sports car will definitely fill a decade-old void left by the Supra. Here are some reasons that you’re going to love this car.
- Joint Development – This vehicle was developed by engineers at both Toyota and Subaru. You’re getting the very best from two of the top auto manufacturers in the world.
- Great Power – For a four-cylinder engine, the FR-S gets 200 horsepower at 7,000 RPM. That’s not bad considering the Supra got 220 horsepower in some models.
- Excellent Technology – You’re really getting the very best technology in the FR-S. The sports car includes an eight-speaker Pioneer audio system with iPod connectivity and many other features.
- Safety – You probably don’t think about this when buying a sports car, but you should. The FR-S comes with an assortment of safety features including side curtain airbags, traction control and an engine immobilizer.
These are just a few reasons that you’ll love the Scion FR-S. Don’t take our word for it. Take it out for a test drive to see for yourself.
