Exclamation Specs Revealed! Scion FR-S / Subaru BRZ is 2600 lbs with 200hp and 151 tq

The leaks for this car keep hitting.

Full specs revealed at http://www.ft86club.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2096

There's not much to reveal now that specs and production images have been posted But seriously, this thing's dry weight is under 2600 pounds, which is pretty remarkable this day in age.

Not much power from that flat 4 boxer engine but it'll still be peppy and probably a joy on the twisties.

the weight is remarkable but over the past 5 years this concept has died to something very unattractive.. the FT-HS was a game changer but this car is now just another boring looking toyota

It's about what you'd expect from a company that wants you to get excited over a Camry.

The more interesting news is the rumor that the Subaru BRZ will have more horsepower, which would imply it'd be turbocharged.

Should have left it at that...but then again, concept models almost always look better than the actual production models. Look at the genesis coupe concept and actual...

You guys can get excited over that latest version of the concept, but I wouldn't get your hopes up until they finally release something production-wise. This car has been a concept for how many years? Just build the damn thing!

This has become the Toyota way. Nissan resurrected the Z car, GTR. Where is the Supra & Celica? This FT is rubbish
