2014 Scion FR-S Convertible Confirmed?


2013_Scion_FRS_019.jpg
The guys over at Car and Driver have apparently received word that a convertible version of the 2013 Scion FR-S/ Toyota GT-86 coupe has been given the green light. The FR-S convertible is expected for the 2014 model year and will have retain the rear seats and 200-hp 2.0L boxer engine from the coupe.

The convertible will be built on the same platform as the Toyota/ Subaru coupe. Product planners are also reportedly working on other possible models that could share the same platform. The rear-wheel-drive platform could be used as the basis for a small four-door sedan or a larger coupe.

The only bad news so far is that Car and Driver has also learned that the Scion FR-S will not be offered with a turbocharger.
