Scion FR-S Will Be Called Toyota 86 Now That Scion Is Dead

Scion FR-S Will Be Called Toyota 86 Now That Scion Is Dead
The FR-S lives on, with a new nameplate.

BY COLLIN WOODARD
MAR 16, 2016



Scion FR-S Will Be Called Toyota 86 Now That Scion Is Dead

When first heard Scion was dying, the biggest question was what would happen to the FR-S. We were happy to hear it would live on as a Toyota, but we didn't know until now what it would be called until now. Turns out, its new name is the Toyota 86.

In a post today on the Toyota Driver's Seat blog, a caption of a photo revealed the car's new name, saying simply that "the FR-S will become the Toyota 86 when it debuts this fall."

As the Scion brand only ever existed in the U.S. market, this car has gone by different names around the world. The car formerly known as the Scion FR-S has always been badged as a Toyota 86 in Asia, South Africa, South America, and Australia. In Europe, it goes by Toyota FT86. The "86" designation harkens back to the Toyota AE86, a beloved Corolla-based sports coupe from the 1980s that played a major role in Japan's drifting culture.

We have a feeling the rear-drive coupe will receive some small styling updates before it goes on sale as a Toyota this fall. As for us? We're just thankful this car, whatever it's named, will survive the death of Scion.

Name change to the most obvious choice and speculation that there may be some minor styling updates are threadworthy?

The re-naming comes with a power bump too, finally, even if it’s just a slight one; Toyota says the car’s 2.0-liter naturally-aspirated boxer four is now rated at 205 horsepower and 156 lb-ft of torque, up five on both counts. It’s small, but we’ll take it. The suspension’s been retuned as well.

5hp power bump

Edit: I thought it was just a rendering until I saw Scion Canada's facebook page posting the same picture. It seriously looked like someone just photoshopped the part with the Toyota badge and attached it to a BRZ body


Finally gets global recognition as a 86. Takes away the 86 badges from the fender.

RIP to all the FR-S/BRZ owners who bought super expensive aftermarket hella JDM LED headlights and tail lights with Toyota and 86 emblems, only to have Toyota put standard aftermarket-looking LED headlights and tail lights, with Toyota and 86 emblems on standard as well

Also Galactic, there are small round red 86 emblems on the fender still, just in a different location.

Failed by turbos86 cause he's one of the salty losers who bought Toyota and 86 badges

I don't know if the minor refresh & name change is enough to address the sales slump...there's so much potential if they just force induce it from factory...but I guess they're worried about it hurting WRX numbers.

I look forward to when the toyobaru twins can be had for 4 digits in the used market.

C&D has a lot more photos. Notice on the 3rd photo how the bottom of new front bumper extends out quite far, like a lip or splitter even, pretty cool.

yeah 205hp out of 2.0L 4cyl is quite pathetic

1999 Honda S2000
2.0L VTEC Inline-4
237–247 hp
153–161 lbf·ft
(power varied on your local emission standards)

So glad I have the first gen now. Catfish looking new bumper, no more smooth lines. added useless features to please the mass (steering wheel buttons, hill assist feature)

FIY the power and torque increase is just for the manual transmission. Comes from a better intake and gear ratio.

imo the original frs can look like an exotic to people with little knowledge of car. Now this refresh just make it look like its trying too hard.

Do like the new headlights though, will be waiting to see if it will fit the old bumper

Food for thought, looking at the front end shots of the new bumpers the centre grille area between the "fangs" seems to have a squarish cutout for a license plate on the bottom portion. Once it's there it may look less like a gaping catfish mouth.

You might be right. The original frs looks weird with front plates. This facelift bumper might have that purpose in mind.

Something else new that isn't mentioned in the article

"One the 2017 model, also featured is a reprogrammed power steering, as well as loads of recalculated spot-welded points and panels, plate thickness, etc.. to make the uni-body feel slightly different too."

Kind of want to test drive one when its out.

Possible stock license plate mounting locations, makes the front end look a little less gaping? Honestly I don't have a problem with this facelift, I feel like it will look miles better in person.




Or the usual aftermarket tow hook mount

Non car people that knows nothing about cars still ask me how much hp my v8 makes and how I can afford a Maserati all the time.... getting a lot less now that there is a lot more on the road. But on the days I do wash and make my car all shiny I still get these comments.

100% agree, the new front end is so ugly imo, i much prefer the cleaner and simpler look of the first gen.

The only thing im slightly jealous about for the new model is just the standard led headlights and much better looking stock rims.

but overall, ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
