There aren’t many options on the market when shopping for a stylish and performance-driven sports car at an affordable price. The Orlando Scion FR-S is the solution to this problem with its sleek exterior and a low starting MSRP of $25,255! Within just two years on the market, this new Scion in Orlando has already gained a ton of notoriety. However, its success doesn’t come as a surprise, as most of what makes it so great is based on some of the best Toyota sports cars of the past!
This new Scion may be fairly new to the game, but as a member of the Toyota family, it has a long heritage of Toyota sports cars to take inspiration from! Everything from its style to its performance features were taken from some of the most successful Toyota!
Toyota sports cars inspire the performance of this new Scion in Orlando
The Scion FR-S in Orlando has been receiving a ton of praise because of the exciting performance it has to offer on and off the tracks! The performance of this new Scion drew inspiration from two popular classics - the Toyota Sports 800 and Toyota Corolla GT-S.
- The Toyota Sports 800 was released in 1963 and was the first sport car by Toyota. The performance was unmatched at the time, as is boasted a lightweight design, rear-wheel drive and a front-mounted engine. These features gave it a lower center of gravity and enhanced handling! This Toyota was incredibly popular in Japan, which is why it made perfect sense to bring some of what it had to offer to the current Scion FR-S!
- The Toyota Corolla GT-S was a hit in 1984 and was known to many as the AE86. The Orlando Scion FR-S borrowed heavily from this sports car and is even named after it, as this new Scion is called the “Toyota GT-86” in most other countries! Here in the U.S. it pays homage by flaunting a custom “86” heritage badge on the exterior. This is because the entire layout of the Scion FR-S was carried over from this sporty Toyota!
Orlando Scion FR-S takes styling cues from the Toyota 2000GT!
The exterior style of the Scion FR-S came from the Toyota 2000GT! This Toyota is highly recognizable from its role in a popular James Bond film. With its sleek and aerodynamic style and high-end price tag, it was a “dream car” to many people back then and still is to this day. However, there’s no need to dream any longer, as the 2014 Scion FR-S in Orlando strongly resembles the 2000GT, giving sports car enthusiasts the chance to get behind the wheel of the closest thing to this classic Toyota at an affordable price!
