Anyone is welcome to come and see the car and possibly test drive it themselves. I'm sure the sales people won't mind the interest in the car.
I've got time to come out. Still meeting at 6?

I saw the FRS at the decator toyota dealership. Someone already bought it. 6speed. It was so nice. He let me sit in it. He turned it on an reved it to 2grand an it sounds really good. Started out at 24k an ended up paying 27k for it upgraded stero an a few other things. I've been looking forward to this car for awhile an it was great finally seeing it in person.. going to save up an get the turbo one when it comes out next year

your going to be waiting more than a year... unless you turbo it yourself. no turbo version is planned as of now. i was in training a couple weeks ago, and the instructor said there were no forced induction plans for the FA20 engine. the rings are too thin, pistons have almost no skirts, and the dual VVT system requires 0-w20 oil, which turbos don't like.

Makes good sense. So the STi-version is looking more like a 2.5 with better intake and exhaust flow then? Any word on that or just rumor?

Best guess is a displacement increase to 2.5L. They can make 250hp plus using a FA25. 250hp in a 2700lb car will have better power/weight than a 3400lb car with 305hp. The rwd drivetrain should have less paracidic loss than the awd drivetrain so more will make it to the ground.

Awesome! If they let you drive it let me know how it is!

I got to sit and take a ride in the grey FR-S at the dealer from the new owner but I wasn't able to test drive it.

I might have to stop by when it is there so I can take a look and talk to you about the one thing I need done with the gauges (in my car).
