Quote:
Inspired by the AE86, the FR-S is built around the core goal of achieving "pure balance," which begins with the strategic placement of a flat 2.0-liter boxer engine in a front-engine, rear-wheel drive configuration. The engine's compact size and shape allows the FR-S' powertrain to be mounted lower and further back towards the rear, giving the car a lower center of gravity and a dynamically favorable front-to-rear weight ratio.


The FR-S' naturally-aspirated engine is innovative, being the first boxer to incorporate Toyota's D4-S injection system, which utilizes both direct and port injection, resulting in increased horsepower and torque throughout the entire powerband, without sacrificing MPG.

The flat-four can mate with either a six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic transmission. The manual offers quick and precise shifts with a short-throw, while the automatic transmission features aggressive, sporty shifts that are initiated by steering- wheel-mounted paddle shifters. Power is distributed effectively via a limited-slip differential.

Re: FR-S debuts at New York Auto Show...

FT86club.com and Toyobaru.net forums have been around for quite a while as well!

Highly anticipated car by a lot of people. Maybe this'll inspire Nissan to make a new SX/Silvia, and NOT base it on a luxury sedan...

They had a pic in Motor trend of Subarus version in clear glass showing the drivetrain and suspension. It is going to be one sweet handling ride.

Re: FR-S debuts at New York Auto Show...

G37s do NOT have a high nose; agreed on the Z.
I still think it looks so much more like a ******* z/g than an ae.
Looks more like a supra than an ae...

If they calmed some of the lines a bit, I think they might have one of the better looking cars built.
