The Scion brand may be a fading memory, but fans of affordable sports cars need not worry. In North America, the fun-to-drive FR-S is still available, just with Toyota badges and a new name for 2017.
Called the 86, it will continue to emphasize driving dynamics as it has since first hitting the market about half a decade ago. Keeping things fresh in an ever-evolving market, Toyota
engineers have improved this car for the current model year and added a brand-new trim package.
The most significant change is the 860 Special Edition, a top-end model that gains high-end features not found on standard versions of the car. Outside, this variant is dressed up with a unique rear spoiler, rolls on 17-inch wheels
, features heated side-view mirrors and has LED fog-lights. A belly pan is also included, helping improve aerodynamics.
The 860 Special Edition will be offered in two colors: Halo White and Supernova Orange, the latter of which is a visually arresting hue that comes paired with black stripes. Making this an unusually limited vehicle, only 860 examples of each color will be built.
