This is a rear-wheel drive sports car built to wake you up.
While Scion may be going the way of the dodo, Toyota won't let some of its more impressive sister brand's models die off. Notably, the FR-S (base MRSP $27,000). It's one of the few affordable rear-wheel drive sports cars on the road. Toyota needs this car in its lineup because it does something that the company's other cars don't - it doesn't break under the pressure of the market and try to become a practical, everyman's car.
