http://drivencarreviews.com/ Scion has done "sporty" cars before, now they have done a true sports car. The 2013 FR-S has the potential to become an instant classic. Tom Voelk attends the press launch in Las Vegas, NV and spends a little quality time with this 2+2 on the track at Spring Mountain Raceway.
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.

vehicle is all about beginning with the start up, performance data, fuel
economy, the occasional track data, and build quality. Also, I will teach
you how to use most of the interior and exterior features in a detailed
fashion, that before, you could only get from going to a dealership
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
designed to give others a greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.

presented in a more detailed fashion than ever before. Basically, this
gives the viewer the chance to view the most detailed 1st person look you

consistent in the way I present so viewers know what to expect in my
presentations. I treat every vehicle with the same respect whether a 1960
Chevrolet Impala SS or the 2012 Lamborghini Aventador. I film all types of
vehicles from past, present, and future while broadening the knowledge of
the automotive enthusiast. You will see everything from vintage, brand new,
exotic, mainstream, old, etc. I am very proud of this channel and have
built it up from amateur videos years ago to what you see today. I wanted
to share my love for the automotive world with the rest of the world. Be

Seat of YouTube!

2013 Subaru BRZ vs Porsche 911 Carrera S Mile High Mashup Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) Most people certainly won't cross shop a 2013
Subaru BRZ and the all new Porsche 911 Carrera S. Yet in many ways the two
cars are very similar. They both have a similar type of flat engine, they
both seat 2 comfortaby but you can get 4 people into the cars in a pinch,
and they are both are classic rear wheel drive sports cars. Of course the
Porsche cost 4X the money and has exactly 2X the horsepower of the BRZ and
yet it is currently and possibly the most desired car by twenty something
year olds. The Porsche is verging on super car status and yet it is
possibly the most desired car by forty something year olds. Check it out as
we mashup these two cars in this Mile High review to see what makes them so
similar to each other.
2013 Ford Mustang vs Scion FR-S Mashup Drive & Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2013 V6 Ford Mustang and the 2013 Scion FR-S don't
compete directly. The Mustang has 2 more cylinders, 105
more horses and weights about 700 more pounds. However, in two important
ways they compete: 1) Price and 2) the Fun to drive factor. In fact, we
would not be surprised if drivers crossed shopped the two very different
cars. Which of course begs the question....which one is better? In this
video review we mashup the established American Icon with the much heralded
Japanese new comer to decide which car is the better?
