Is the Price Right? Scion FR-S vs. Subaru BRZ

By now everyone should know the Scion FR-S and the Subaru BRZ are both made in the same factory. Differences between the two cars are relatively minor with the front end and badges being the biggest thing to distinguish the two. Today Subaru announced the pricing for the BRZ so let’s take a look at what you’ll get compared to the Scion FR-S.

Scion FR-S 6-speed: $24,200 MSRP
Subaru BRZ 6-speed: $25,496 MSRP

So what’s really the difference between the two? The FR-S is going to be for the guys who don’t need added bells and whistles; the BRZ will be for the guys who like the added luxuries of a modern car. For $1,295 the BRZ will include Nav and HIDs and if you wanted to spend $3,295 you’ll add on Alcantara heated seats, fog lights, keyless entry and a rear spoiler bringing up the total to $27,495 for the Limited Edition model.

Now that we know the pricing, which model will you go with?

Unlike most builds that are a product of some grand scheme of daydreaming and sometimes documenting plans for picking up a specific car and applying a headful of parts and changes to it, this turbocharged 1995 Mazda Miata is the exact opposite. Its owners and builders, brothers Alex and David Wong, had no intentions of

One of the most unexpected things to emerge from an unusual 2020 was just how hot the Japanese tuner car collector market is.
