Rumorpile: FR-S Chief Engineer Hints At 2 More Coupes

Toyota FR-S GT86 Chief Engineer Two Coupes Rumor

The Scion FR-S marks a return for Toyota of building a sporty RWD coupe, and it might not be the only one.

Top Gear Philippines had the chance to sit down with Tetsuya Tada, chief engineer for the FR-S and other members (Toyota GT86 and Subaru BRZ). Tada revealed that the FR-S was the first of three new sports cars being worked on by Toyota.

"The first is more mass-market and cheaper than the 86. And the third is more upmarket than the 86," Tada said.

When asked if the third vehicle is the successor the Supra, Tada said it could possibly be but that nothing is sure at the moment.

GM has a chance to roll out their R130 concept and gain market share and fans, but this is a limited time window to build for the future customers by delivering the right ride now.

They need to do this badly...Ford is picking up huge media hype with the new Folcus ST, GM already has a high performance version of the Astra that's faster and a better car...they should bring the Astra Coupe in as a Buick, and do a small RWD Chevy, I think.

They are giving up image and market share....

I totally agree, the car gods need to be listening. Better yet bring them in with CNG and let that 130 octane fuel really make them roar! :D
