    Post Scion FR-S First Drive Reviews - Combined

    As many of you heard, Scion recently flew many media outlets and scion reps to Nevada's Las Vegas speedway to test drive the Scion FR-S and experience a drive with Ken Gushi. Scion kept the media frenzy going by landing the FR-S into the hands of other media outlets to get their full view on the now completed production car. These media outlets are now posting the events experience and reviews. I compiled a list of all these reports into a single thread for you.

    So what's the overall feeling from the Scion FR-S? Well, just as we we told. Freaking really sweet!

    We're a lot alike, you know. I'm talking about automotive journalists and enthusiast consumers. We both want cars to be excellent to drive; we both want them to live up to automakers' hype. We're both excited and terrified to drive new, highly anticipated cars for fear that they'll fall short of our expectations. And we're both ecstatic when a car -- no matter the door count, engine specs, or what badge adorns the hood -- is just as good as we want it to be. We can say, without a doubt, the 2013 Scion FR-S is a car that makes us pretty damn ecstatic.

    ...The FR-S is one of the most playful and enjoyable cars we've driven in quite a while. Throw the car into a tight 90-degree bend and after initial front-end push, the rear end will start coming around predictably and controllably. Countersteer and dial in a little throttle, and suddenly you're drift star Ken Gushi, sashaying down a stretch of switchbacks in perfect rhythm. The car stays tremendously flat in both corners and under braking, and the brakes feel more than up to the task, offering a very firm pedal that's easy to modulate, along with impressive fade resistance and stopping force.
    Damn! Thats alot of praise coming from MT

    This car with 250HP-270HP would be insane. Mustang? Pssh.
