2016 Scion FR-S Release Series 2.0 is Tamer than 1.0

Like RS1.0, 2.0 is essentially a fully loaded FR-S with a few unique appearance touches and a limited production run.

The 2016 Scion FR-S Release Series 2.0 was recently unveiled and it’s a much more chill treatment compared to the previous bright yellow FR-S Release Series 1.0.

Like Release Series 1.0, 2.0 is essentially a fully loaded FR-S with a few unique appearance touches and a limited production run. This time around the 2016 FR-S Release Series 2.0 gets Lunar Storm paint, black 17-inch TRD wheels, a relatively subtle rear deck spoiler, and a front lip spoiler.

Inside, the leather and Alcantara seats feature a two-tone black and camel color scheme. Camel accents are also used for the steering wheel, door panels, and stitching for the center armrest and dashboard. The FR-S Release Series 2.0 will come loaded with a push-button start, dual-zone automatic climate control, HID headlamps, and LED daytime running lamps.

The 2.0-liter, inline-four boxer is untouched and will still make 200 hp and 151 lb-ft of torque. Pricing has been set at $30,305 for the six-speed manual gearbox and $31,405 for the automatic transmission. Scion will only build 1,000 units, which is 500 fewer cars than the Release Series 1.0. Each car will be numbered via an embroidered badge on the passenger-side dashboard.

It's been 21 years since the last generation of the Toyota Supra. This version will be the fifth generation and officially named the A90, but people will often refer to it as the MkV, as well (us included).
