In terms of appearance, the 2015 FR-S will get larger, flush-mounted exhaust pipes at the back and an aerodynamically-efficient shark-fin antenna on the roof. Inside, there are new carbon-fibre motif trim panels and automatic headlights. There’s even, wait for it … a restyled key.
Fans of Scion’s rear-drive coupe continue to hope for oft-rumoured convertible, sedan, and turbo FR-S variants, but Scion and parent company Toyota are keeping their cards close when it comes to such possibilities.
