If you’ve been counting down the days to the release of the 2013 Scion FR-S, you can switch over to counting down the hours now. The most eagerly-anticipated sports coupe in years will be hitting the streets in less than 24 hours.
We’ve heard of dealers with cars already in the showroom, sadly with “additional dealer markups” approaching the $7,000 mark. That puts the Scion FR-S in an entirely different class of car, and for nearly $35,000 there are a lot of other cars we’d choose over the FR-S.
Bad publicity from dealer price gouging aside, Scion wants you to remember that the automotive press, at least those lucky enough to drive it, have heaped praise on the car. We haven’t had our turn behind the wheel just yet, but reliable sources tell us the car is the real deal.
To promote the car one last time before launch, Scion has released the above video, chock full of lurid power slides on damp mountain roads, obviously at the hands of trained professionals. Do we even need to remind you that trying this at home, in your own Scion FR-S, is not a good idea?
