The Scion FR-S is a Scion-badged version of the Toyota 86/GT86 and Subaru BRZ 2+2 sports coupe sold in the United States of America and Canada.
The Scion FR-S, exclusive to the United States and Canada, has its name derived from a description of its platform: Front-engine, Rear-wheel-drive, Sport. Originally, the FR-S had no trim levels and all FR-S variants were offered with Scion's BeSpoke stereo system.
The FR-S uses the Subaru FA20/Toyota 4U-GSE naturally aspirated 2.0L (1,998 cc) flat-four engine with Subaru's horizontally-opposed boxer engine design and Toyota's D-4S injection system, which uses both direct and port fuel injection. The FA20/4U-GSE produces 200 hp (149 kW) at 7,000 rpm and 151 ft·lb (205 N·m) at 6,000 rpm. As part of the 86's low-weight design, the car utilizes an aluminum hood, a solid roof, and a trunk. The 86, BRZ and FR-S are offered with two 6-speed transmissions, an in-house developed Toyota TL70 manual gearbox (based on Aisin AI's AZ6) and an Aisin-Warner A960E, which is modified from that used on the Lexus IS 250. The automatic uses a traditional wet torque converter design, but its software has been engineered to mimic the response of a dual-clutch gearbox. The automatic transmission uses three different modes: Sport, Snow, and Normal. A torque sensing limited slip differential is standard on most models.
Scion estimates performance figures of 0-60 mph in 7.4 seconds, while a top speed of 145 mph (233 km/h) was tested.

- Starting rank: 684

NOTE: This vehicle is no longer available for purchase.
The FR-S can be described as an all-rounder. It doesn't seem to fail in any particular aspect, though it's not the best in any particular aspect.
The FR-S has an average top speed. If Multiplayer-tuned with only speed upgrades applied, it can become slightly superior to cars like the Audi RS 3 Sportback and Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Electric Drive (at the same rank). Otherwise, it's not overly impressive.
Compared to the Ford F-150, it has a total top speed and larger Tuning Kit boost at the expense of nitro efficiency and raw top speed.
The FR-S has superior handling to most of the cars before it, but inferior handling to the Alfa Romeo MiTo GTA.
The FR-S is not fast enough to compete properly in Class D Time-Limited Events. For those, the "minimum" requirement is the Nissan 370Z, which can usually manage to reach time-goal cutoffs by a fraction of a second.
In Multiplayer, the FR-S is a poor choice unless the player has a large supply of boosters. Compared to the other cheap Class D and Class C cars, the FR-S is above average.

The Scion FR-S had an original buying price of 7,500 that was increased to 11,250 before being removed from the Garage in the Motorcycles Update. The removal is due to licensing issues surrounding parent company Toyota that have prevented non-Japanese developers from including their road cars in games, specifically those that promote illegal street racing.
As of the 2019 Spring Update, upgrades cost 136,000 while Pro Kits require 21,600, 3 of each Class D Part, and 2 Early & Initial Techs each.
