An Automatic Sports Car? 2015 Scion FR-S *Auto* Test Drive Video Review The 2015 Scion FR-S is the same great front engine, rear wheel drive sports car that we came to love when it was first introduced back in 2012, whereas the original FR-S was sold as a mono-spec vehicle, today you can choose from leather clad Monogram Series, glow in the dark 10th Anniversary Edition or the bright yellow TRD tuned Release Series 1.0. Upgrades for the 2015 FR-S include a fixed shark fin antennae mounted atop the roof replacing the old pointable stubbly black stick as well as slightly larger tailpipes that fill out the existing Exhaust cutouts much better than before. On the inside the FR-S gets a new carbon fiber look dash trim panel instead of the old school Toyota logos that are hidden like Easter eggs throughout the vehicle. Starting at $24,900 for the six speed manual and $26,000 for the automatic equipped FR-S, one of the biggest enhancements for 2015 is that the Scion sports car is now available with an optional touchscreen navigation display. The biggest question here is whether or not a sports car can have an automatic transmission, and with the FR-S's strong suits being it's chassis dynamics (suspension and steering) that make it such a great handling car, and we all know about being down a good 50 HP or so, but at the end of the day, will it be worth giving up a third pedal for a more peaceful ride in rush hour traffic.

[For the true enthusiast, the clutch pedal and gear stick or shifter are a JOY to use...NOT a burden. Traffic is the one exception but we are talking about the car enthusiast. We drive fr PLEASURE, NOT to get to work or get groceries. So traffic is not an issue when it's 7AM on a Saturday or Sunday and you are headed to your favorite country road. For the enthusiast, the clutch pedal is a PLUS not a minus. It is a critical part of what makes driving a stick shift an art. Automatic is email and manual is a hand written note. A dying art that is much more involved and personal than email. Making a perfect shift, makes me smile like NO paddle shift will EVER do! Manual is a piano played with a live band, automatic is one man with a Casio keyboard in his basement with automatic accompaniment generated by the keyboard. The feeling of playing a complex piece correctly dwarfs any reward of pressing ONE note and having the Casio keyboard play a bunch of chords automatically. Is a paddle shift a manual transmission? Being able to request gears manually does NOT make a transmission automatic. Remember in the automatics from the 80s you had "2" "L" "R"? So automatics have allowed you to "change gears" since the 80s. This is just like modern paddle shifters do. NOTE: A sequential gearbox is NOT the same as the classic automatic gearbox, but the point is, you could ALWAYS select/request gears in automatics. So the ability to SELECT gears does not make it manual. You need the ability to physically disengage the clutch by moving the throw out bearing and also to physically change the actual gears. This is all mechanically done, not electronically. It requires focus, finesse, strength, timing and skill and it's rewarding to do correctly.] _________________________________ *Carlyle's Picks -* Reviews, information and ACTION videos on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays!!
