Toyota Confirms That Stripped Scion FR S Models Not USA Bound

It has been confirmed that U.S. buyers won’t be seeing a stripped-down version of ’s FR-S sport coupe in the foreseeable future.

That contrasts with the Japanese launch of the - and the , both of which will come in decontented versions for the home market. Aimed at racers, tuners and even buyers on a tight budget, the least expensive -86 will come without painted bumpers, alloy , an audio system or even air conditioning.

As previously  reported, it will also come with a price tag roughly $10,500 less than a basic Japanese-market , which will be priced from $36,447 to $38,343. That makes the car particularly attractive to buyers looking to build race cars, cars or just highly personalized rides, all of which are popular in Japan.

A strong Japanese yen and weak U.S. dollar means that would likely lose money on a stripped-down for U.S. customers. On the positive side, it’s likely that U.S.-spec FR-S models will cost considerably less than their equivalent Japanese counterparts, since a $39,000 FR-S would be a tough sell for Scion.
