Real Videos: 2013 Scion FR-S, the Driver's Sports Coupe
Here we are with another Real Video, the Real Review featuring the 2013
Scion FR-S sports coupe. As you might have seen from our Real First
Impressions Video on the FR-S (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I6QqilUWwqk),
this car is a bare bones, driver's sports car. It has enough features to
make it liveable on a regular basis, but really excels at being a raw and
pretty powerful performance sports car.
Join us as we discuss the current design, the excitement factor and
day-to-day living with this 2013 Scion FR-S. About $25K and equipped with
what you will find out is a short list of available options, the question
that will be most pertinent to our views is whether this car can live up to

Scion FR-S Test Drive & Driving Impressions
Experience the new Scion FR-S from the driver's seat.
I took a test drive the other day and filmed my impressions so my
girlfriend could get a feel for the car. She just got her wisdom teeth
taken out and wasn't in any shape to go on a test drive so I came to her
rescue and made this video of the experience.
Shameless plug: If you're local, around SE Michigan, be sure to ask for
Jamar Daniels at Victory Toyota of Canton, MI for information &
availability on the Scion FR-S. Had a great experience with him, he was
very helpful and generous with his time.
1. It has four wheels, which seemed very round when I inspected them.
2. Doors with which to enter and leave the car (you don't have to enter
through the windows or the top or bottom of the vehicle)
3. While driving the car, there is a round knob (though not as round as the
wheels) that controls the wind inside the car. The wind can be a mild
breeze, or a vicious tsunami blowing from little holes in the front
console. It can be cool or warm, and you can direct the wind. It makes you
feel very powerful.
4. There is also another button that lets you listen to people talking and
singing in the car, I believe Jamar called this a radio. This device only
allows for listening, and is therefore a one-way conversation. I tried
talking back to the people in the "radio" and they either couldn't hear me
or didn't feel like responding. I imagine they have a lot of people trying
to talk to them through the "radio." If you don't have a lot of friends and
want someone who never stops talking, this radio device is probably a good
thing for you to order.
5. The cloth seats have a red stripe on them. I assume that this is
probably from the animal's skin that was used to make them. The red stripe
tells me that the animal was fierce and vicious, trying to warn its
predators of it's danger with a warning color, much like bees and the
yellow jackets they wear. However, it mustn't have been a match for the
Scion hunters, as I hear many FR-S's are filled with seats made from this
In short, the FR-S makes me feel like an ancient hunting warrior that can
control wind, talk to spirits, and chase down fast dangerous animals.
Enjoy the video, I hope you find it helpful in your quest of filling the
empty void in your heart with a lightweight rear wheel drive sports coupe.

sea level and some a mile above sea level from 0-60 MPH in real world
driving. So without further delay here are the top 5 new sporty cars that

2014 / 2015 Scion FR-S (AKA Subaru BRZ & Toyota 86) Review and Road Test - DETAILED
Check out my other videos! http://vid.io/xqoB
Who is Alex? Find out here! http://vid.io/xqoF
The Scion FR-S, Subaru BRZ and Toyota 86 are all essentially the same car
and together they are probably one of the most misunderstood sports cars
sold in America. Misunderstood you ask? Why yes. Many assume that the sexy
coupé is rocket ship fast. It's not. Many assume the svelte 2-door grips
the road like it has claws. It doesn't. Many have heard rumours that it
wears Toyota Prius tires. It kinda-sorta does. What most people don't know
however is that these traits combine to create one of the purest, most
enjoyable and certainly most affordable rear wheel drive sports cars in
In the same tradition as a classic lightweight English sports car, the 2+2
Scion FR-S' raison d'être isn't to eat Ford Mustangs for breakfast, it's mission
is to be the best balanced track car. And it succeeds. The 200HP and 151
lb-ft of torque are unquestionably low for our modern era where even a
Camry cranks out more power, but the power is perfectly balanced to the
car's weight AND grip. The low-rolling resistance tires allow the FR-S to
get just the right amount of tail-happy on a small track and the manual
transmission is perfectly suited to an autocross style event.
Sure, putting the FR-S on a larger track like Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca
reveals the FR-S is out-gunned by plenty of rivals, but doing so also
misses the point. I like to think of the Scion/Toyota/Subaru as baby's
first track car, the kind of car you can use to hone your driving skills
before moving up to a more-powerful, faster and deadlier vehicle. The key to
loving this low-slung 2+2 is to understand what it is, and most
importantly: what it isn't.
Scion FR-S Chasing Porsche 997 GT3 @ Circuit Of The Americas (Track)
**Subscribe and dont forget to rate more videos in my channel*
In car video chasing a Porsche GT3 @ Circuit of the americas COTA in the
FR-S. Best lap from Feb 01-03 was a 2:40.8 and top speed in the back
straight was 117 MPH, as the day warmed up so did my front tires and i
started getting a bit of understeer and my time would go up. The FR-S is a
well balanced car but lacks power in a track like COTA. Im sure the GT3
driver was either on street tires or not pushing the car all the way but
man i had fun chasing him down. Just for reference a well setup gt3 should
clock a 2:22.0 - 2:32.0 depending on driver, brakes, suspension, and tires.

2013 Scion FR-S on The Dragon - WINDING ROAD POV Test Drive
Earlier this month, we headed down to Tennessee and North Carolina to drive
some real winding roads in a 2013 Scion FR-S. All week we'll be uploading
videos from our trip. We figured we'd start things off with an evening run
through the Tail of the Dragon at Deal's gap! Also known as US Route 129,
Deals Gap, or the Tail Of The Dragon, this twisting ribbon of tarmac spans
11 miles and includes 318 turns. Sounds perfect for a light, rear-drive car
like our FR-S.

yourself! Throughout the video, I will highlight key styling and unique
differences about the vehicle, any available options, and of course it
would not be an enthusiast car video without the good ole engine portion
with rev and Exhaust note with
interior and exterior perspectives. A thorough tour/review of this car
