2013 Scion FR-S Review - One Year Later
One of the most hyped vehicles in recent memory, the FR-S wowed just about
anyone who drove it when it arrived a year ago. But now, the honeymoon is
over and it's time to revisit this baby sports car and see if it still
lives up to that first drive.

Which is better, manual or automatic transmission? Paddle shift or stick shift? Ending the debate!
http://carlylespicks.com/?p=142 Which is better, manual or automatic
transmission? Paddle shift or stick shift? Ending the debate!
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
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.

An Automatic Sports Car? 2015 Scion FR-S *Auto* Test Drive Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/?id=32972 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.
