Have you ever wondered how aftermarket companies first get the ball rolling on making new parts when a new car enters their segment? Sometimes the companies will get their own car to test and use in house, but other times OEM will hold what is called a “measuring session.” These sessions are exactly what they sound like; an open day for various aftermarket manufacturers to come and take measurements of the new car, in order to develop different components to offer customers.

Scion opened their doors to members of SEMA (and the media) last week in preparation for the soon-to-be-on-sale (and much anticipated) FR-S rear wheel drive sports coupe. With a 2.0 liter boxer 4 cylinder, light weight body, and a mission statement to bring affordable fun back to the front engine rear drive segment, the FR-S hopes to fill a void that has been present in our scene for far too long. With a good turnout of representatives showing up throughout the day, the measuring session hopefully hints to a slew of aftermarket goodies in line to be released soon after the car is officially for sale to the public. Offerings in the engine performance department, including forced induction options, as well as suspension, aerodynamics, interior, and in car entertainment can be expected to be among the first aspects of the FR-S to be embraced by the tuning community.
