2012 Toyota 86 GTS

Since Toyota publically announced the shutting down of their Scion brand back in February, Scion enthusiasts and general consumers alike have been waiting to see what will happen with the slated new models under the brand. Well Toyota Motor Corp. answered and said that they will use the Toyota brand for three new upcoming models which were originally slated to be branded as Scions.

One of those models is the Scion FR-S. This vehicle is known by the FRS name in North America, but will carry the Toyota 86 name moving forward. The name “86” references back to Toyota’s legendary Corolla GTS which was also known as the AE86 in Japan. I’m sure FRS enthusiast will be elated with the new name.

The 86 will be getting a refresh as well which will debut at the upcoming New York Auto Show. The car will likely have updated body work such as bumpers and headlight treatment.
