Scion's first real sports car, the 2013 FR-S, is a collaboration between Subaru and Toyota. This unlikely partnership combines the strengths of both automakers, including a boxer engine and a rear-wheel-drive setup. The FR-S is a remarkable handler, but acceleration is lacking, according to Cars.com Editor Joe Bruzek.
2013 Chevrolet Spark
Consumers might shy away from Chevy's tiny Spark because of its compact
dimensions (and awful pink color, in our case), but looks are deceiving,
says Cars.com reviewer David Thomas. The Spark is roomier than it looks and
its small four-cylinder engine is also peppier than expected. The Spark is
at home in the city, but it's not very comfortable on the highway, where
the ride really suffers, Thomas says.
2012 GMC Yukon XL
In an age of perpetually volatile gas prices, who in their right mind would
want to purchase a very large SUV such as the 2012 GMC Yukon XL, you might
ask? It's certainly a valid question; the answer is folks who need to tow
as much as a pickup truck while carrying a lot of passengers or cargo,
according to Cars.com Industry Analyst Kelsey Mays. However, the Chevrolet
Suburban is nearly identical and less expensive than the GMC Yukon XL.
2012 Hyundai Tucson
The Hyundai Tucson has been on sale for nearly three years, and in that
time, a slew of new competitors have entered the compact crossover segment.
While the Tucson is certainly stylish and nice to drive, its harsh ride and
cramped interior left Cars.com Senior Editor Bill Jackson unimpressed.
Toyota 86 (Subaru BRZ / Scion FR-S) - Review 2012
The 86 as it's called in Australia and Japan, or GT 86 in Europe. It also
has sisters in the form of the Subaru BRZ and Scion FR-S.
In this video we review the Toyota 86 GT model, but in Australia Toyota
offer two choices; the GT and the GTS.
2013 Chevrolet Grand Sport Corvette Technology Review & Drive
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) There is no doubt that the 2013 Chevrolet Grand
Sport Corvette Convertible will put a huge smile on your face when you mash
down the accelerator pedal. The 430 horsepower sports car is one
of the fastest (if not ) the fastest and best handling American made sports
cars that you can buy today. But there's a lot of interesting technology
that makes the Chevy Corvette such a razor sharp racetrack tool and yet at
the same time a car that you can drive everyday. Check out this first drive
review video as we put the latest 2013 Chevrolet Grand Sport Corvette
Convertible to the technology test.

2013 Subaru BRZ vs Scion FR-S 0-60 MPH Mile High Mashup Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The almost identical 2013 Subaru BRZ and the 2013
Scion FR-S herald the return of the light and affordable rear-wheel drive
sports car. Jointly developed by Toyota and Subaru there's very little that
separates the two twins except for minor suspension differences. But since
both cars can be purchased as with either an automatic transmission or a
manual one we of course want to know which one is faster to 60 @1 mile above sea level...the
automatic Subaru BRZ or the 6-speed manual Scion FR-S? Check out this fun
TFLcar Mashup Review to find out.
2013 Scion FR-S

spends a little quality time with this 2+2 on the track at Spring Mountain

Scion FR-S vs Subaru BRZ at Consumer Reports test track
The Scion FR-S and Subaru BRZ are almost identical twins. Entertaining to
drive, yet affordable and economical, these cars are aimed at the driving
enthusiast. Find more information on the FR-S and BRZ on our website:
Scion FRS FR-S Subaru BRZ Acceleration test time 0-60 and 0-100+mph
The car have an intake kit, full Exhaust system from the headers to the catback,
a light weight crank pulley and a custom tune using ecutek.
With what I see here, I'm expecting to do the 1/4 mile in about 14.5 -14.8
I'm close to the performance of a stock 91-93 Acura NSX V6 with 270HP that
was doing the 0-60 in 5.5 seconds and the 0-100mph in about 14 -14.2
Not bad for a 4 cylinders 2.0 Liter car with only 220-230 crank horsepower.
My Ecutek flat foot shifting is not working like it should. Thats why It
look like I was powershifting instead.
1st Gear : 65 KM/H or 40 MPH or so
2nd Gear : 97 KM/H or 60 MPH
3rd Gear : 138 KM/H or 85 MPH
4th Gear : 175 KM/H or 110 MPH
5th Gear : 200-210 KM/H or 125-130 MPH
6th Gear : 235-240 KM/H or 147-150 MPH
