Scion FR-S to get convertible version this year image

Scion is planning to introduce a convertible version of the FR-S in the United States, later on this year.

After the Japanese based automaker Toyota has announced its plans to introduce the concept version of the GT 86 Convertible next month, during the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, and the carmaker has also teased it in an official sketch, time has come to talk about the drop-top version of the Scion FR-S. Rumors are saying that this variant will hit the market probably in late 2013 or in early 2014 in the United States, considering the fact that Toyota will launch the GT 86 in Europe and Asia by the end of this year.

The Scion FR-S Convertible is expected to get the same Subaru sourced 2.0 liter four-cylinder under its hood, with Toyota’s D-4S direct injection system, which will produce a total output of 187 HP at 7,000 rpm and it will have a peak torque of 151 lb-ft (205 Nm), available at 6,600 rpm. The unit will be mated to a six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic transmission. More details on the Scion FR-S Convertible or on the Toyota GT 86 Convertible are limited for the moment.
