In other words, best case scenario? I'm actually in the market for an inexpensive sports car and am in love with the sfr. If it came out within a year my mind would be made up. It looks almost production ready even though it's a concept. What are your thoughts?

Also, hi everyone.

It won't come out within a year. Toyota already stated that even if they start production now it would take two years to market.

The FRS was concept announced in about 2007, and didn't make market till 2012, so the SFR will probably come out in 2020 in Japan. I hope I'm wrong though, I'm hoping 2018 will be more likely.

From the interview that they made it very clear it is still a concept only the only answer is between next year and never (not being a smartass that is as much as anybody knows). We don't even have any official statement it will even come to North America. My guess is that if they do release it then the announcement would be made in September when most of the new model years are revealed.

Hi Dennis, welcome.

Have you looked at used FR-S and BRZ?
If you can find one that is unmolested and unmodified, it could be a good buy.

I want this car so bad it's driving me nuts. I'm sitting here every day checking these forums for new info. Ugh.


I did really want the BRZ but I kinda fell outta in love with it.

I'm exactly the same. I'm going to wait. I almost bought a BRZ/86 last month. But the same day I went to look I saw this little beast.

I want one in TE27 green.

If I may ask... did you drive one?

I get it. I waited for the GT86. I did have other cars, though. Still do.

Yeah I test drove one. Overall the price I think is holding me back.

I also test drove two and I liked it, reminded me of my old S13's. But the car overall didn't push me to the point of buying. SFR is more my style and price point.
