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.

2013 Scion FR-S 0-60 MPH
http://MPGomatic.com drops the hammer on a 2013 Scion FR-S (automatic
transmission) for a 0-60 MPH acceleration test.
The FR-S is equipped with a flat four-cylinder (Boxer) engine that produces
(HP) . Test performed in VSC Sport Mode with Traction Control OFF. Two runs
So yeah, these runs look slow. Edmunds hit it in 6.6 seconds from a dead
stop and "6.3 seconds with one foot of rollout like on a drag strip," as
they like to say.
Stick around for the preview of "Formula Drift : Rise of the V8," in an
excerpt that includes Scion/Greddy driver Ken Gushi.
MPGomatic produces car review videos with a unique focus on gas mileage,
in-cabin technology, and driveability. Yep, we're the folks that shoot
those 0-60 MPH tests.

2013 Subaru BRZ top speed run
Follow me on Facebook and Instagram!
Facebook.com/JTPhotos / Instagram @speedracer38
At the end of May I got a call from the Subaru dealership telling me my
2013 BRZ Limited had arrived and was ready for me to take delivery. After
a grueling 1,000 mile break-in period I was looking forward to see what the
car was capable of. I shipped the car to the autobahn to do some high
speed runs in the car and attempt the top speed. The car is limited by its
aerodynamics unfortunately so I had to get a good stretch which favored the
car which allowed me to get up to 147 MPH. This isn't very high speed
compared to other exotic cars but for a 200HP Subaru I was very impressed
seeing what it's capable of on the top speed spectrum! For those of you
who don't know this is a rear wheel drive Subaru and the car is fantastic
to drive along with drifting ;)

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.
Scion FR-S Drift in Japan with Ken Gushi
This footage is from my personal Contour Camera. I had my camera loaded up
in the Scion FR-S as I took a few laps around a forest track in Chiba,
Japan. I was told not to trash the car so I didn't do anything crazy but
here is some raw footage. It is fun to drift!
2013 Scion FR-S vs. 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe Comparison
The affordable sports car shootout.
AutoGuide asks the question: which affordable rear-drive sports coupe is faster, the Scion FR-S or Hyundai
Genesis Coupe? And does faster
mean the most fun?
Affordable rear-wheel drive sports coupes, especially those hailing from
the other side of the Pacific, have historically been a rather rare breed.
But now, thanks to Hyundai and Scion, us regular folk have not one but two
inexpensive rear-wheel drive sports coupes to choose from that don't
feature big thirsty engines or pony car badges.

The 450 HP Crawford Performance Turbo BRZ - /TUNED
We love the FRS and BRZ twins; they offer an approachable limit of
performance and phenomenal dynamics in an affordable package. And we
learned earlier this season that a bolt-on turbo kit will add to the FRS's performance
without taking away from it's character. But what happens when you double
the BRZ's horsepower and triple it's
torque? We find out.
