Scion’s top model, the FRs will be soon turned into the 2017 Toyota 86
Scion’s top model, the FRs will be soon turned into the 2017 Toyota 86 (eight-six), whose name is inspired by its renowned predecessor, the drift machine – ToyotaAE86 that debuted back in the 1980s. Next week at the 2016 New York Auto Show we will lay eyes for the first time on the 2017 Toyota 86, which apart from a new name, also comes with a few exterior and cabin upgrades, as well as suspension and powertrain advancements.

Styling cues
On the outside, in addition to the new wheel patterns and internal alterations of the lights, the car feels much more aggressive and wider thanks to the new bumpers it received. Inside, you will be enjoying the soft materials and accent stitching that have been added to the interior.

The mechanics 
The mechanical upgrades are only few and not that significant. For better performance the manual transmission has new gear ratios, while the shock and spring rates have been modified to a give the vehicle better handling feel. The output numbers, however, haven’t considerably changed since the FR-S. The 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine now produces 205 horsepower and 156 pound-feet of torque, only 5 hp and 5 lb-ft more than the output of the FRs. The Toyota 86 will go on the market this fall, however, the release of its new C-HR subcompact crossover will be delayed and it will first reach America as a 2018 model in spring 2017.

What should we do for Toyota to hear us, GT86 or FRS, it doesn't really matter, what we want is power to go with the looks !
