The AE86 Corolla was well known for its lightweight chassis and superb balance without having a lot of power under the hood. With this philosophy in mind, Scion created the radical new 2011 Scion FR-S which is supposed to be Scion’s homage to the infamous AE86 Corolla. The 2011 Scion FR-S, which stands for Front-engine, Rear-wheel-drive Sport, will house a naturally aspirated 2.0-liter flat-four Boxer engine which can be paired with either a six-speed automatic with steering wheel mounted paddle shifters or six-speed manual transmission. The 2011 Scion FR-S will feature Toyota’s DS-4 injection system, which uses both direct and port injection. The use of both direct and port injection results in increased horsepower and torque throughout the entire power-band without sacrificing gas mileage. The FR-S’ design is inspired by the legendary Toyota 2000GT and design hues of the Lexus LF-A can be seen in the angular shapes that blend with smooth sleek curves. We can’t wait to see the production model in 2012.
