08. The 2013 Scion FR-S Is Sold As The Toyota GT86 In Japan
The Scion brand simply doesn't exist in Japan, which means that when the 2013 Scion FR-S is marketed in its native land it goes under the moniker of the Toyota GT86. This name wasn't chosen by accident - it indicates the clear link between the compact two-door coupe and the Toyota AE86 Corolla, which was a rear-wheel drive two-door hatchback (and coupe) that became famous for its ability to provide well-balanced handling as well as plenty of drift-inducing oversteer, when required. Toyota is hopeful that both the GT86 - and the Scion FR-S - find their own niche in the performance car pantheon and generate the same level of fervent devotion from fans of the brand.
