These cars are so nice in so many ways as well. In the end it’ll be a pick from the Hyundai Genesis Coupe and the Scion Fr-S. Both coming out in spring of 2012 with the same price range at the top. Here’s some pros and cons of the cars and why it’s so hard picking.
Pros: -Very good centre of gravity with 53% front and 47% rear weight distribution -Uses a 2.0 Horizontal opposed four cylinder engine (subaru’s boxer engine) which achieves 200 HP @ 7000 RPM and 151 lb-ft of torque @ 6600 RPM (more than enough speed for a car this light) -only 2700 lbs -drifting? No problem - Love the race car seats -TRD available body kit (which I want so badly and hope is also the same in america) -Might be cheaper than the Genesis Coupe -Great MPG, estimated combined to be 35 or more Cons:
-Rear seats too small for convenience :( -Less HP -Such a small car -Interior quality not as nice -No LED running lights :(
Hyundai Genesis Coupe.
Pros: -3.8 v6 engine with 346 HP @ 6400 RPM (this thing is fast) and 295 lb-ft of torque @ 5300 RPM -Better looking interior in terms of quality being used -Bigger space for rear passengers with better seats -8 Speed Semi Automatic Transmission -LED running daytime lights
Cons: -Chugs fuel like water, 27 mpg combined -not as balanced with centre of gravity as the Fr-S -heavier -not built for pure driving -if not buying the 3.8 track model you get a 2.0 turbo charged engine, and we all know turbos are very expensive to fix
The Toyota FT-1 concept is a pure performance, track-focused sports car model created by CALTY Design Research, Toyota’s North American Design branch. The FT-1 concept is a symbol that captures elements of the emotion and energy we can expect to see in future Toyota vehicle designs. Its design is heavily influenced by Toyota’s long sports car tradition that includes vehicles such as 2000GT, Celica, Supra and most recently, FT-86 (Scion F-RS)
I’m really hoping the Scion Fr-S gets the TRD parts too. If they don’t I’m going to cry in a corner…jk lol but looks so much better with it on :) aggressive…even without it, I’m hoping to get the car :) then maybe import it lol
