*Updated with Official Pricing* Scion FR-S Pricing and Standard Features for US Leaked in Dealer E-Mail

Scion FR-S Pricing and Standard Features for US Leaked in Dealer E-Mail

*Update The e-mail that FT-86 Club received was legit. The FR-S will have a base price of either $24,200 or $25,300 depending on transmission. However, Scion announced that there will be an extra $730 Delivery, Processing and Handling Fee on top of these prices, which makes the real base prices for the car $24,930 for a manual or 26,030 for the automatic. 

The pricing, standard features and colors of the Scion FR-S, which is the US moniker for the Toyota GT-86, have surfaced in an e-mail meant for Scion dealers that was leaked to the FT-86 Club enthusiast forum. The car will have a base price of $24,200 with the six-speed manual transmission or $25,300 with the six-speed automatic transmission. 

The car will come standard with the 200hp, 2.0 liter D-4S boxer engine, torque-sensing limited-slip differential and 17in allow wheels. Inside, the car has sporty, well-bolstered seats and a leather-wrapped three-spoke steering wheel. It will be available in Raven, Asphalt, Hot Lava, Argento, Ultramarine, Firestorm and Whiteout.

The e-mail appears legitimate and is dated March 20. At the bottom it says that pricing for the car will officially be revealed on March 22. So the wait will be very brief to see if this information is accurate. 

If this pricing is accurate, how will the FR-S stack up to the Ford Mustang V6 that has a base price of $22,200 with a 305hp V6, the Camaro that starts at $23,280 with a 323hp V6, the Hyundai Genesis Coupe that is $24,250 with a 274hp turbo four-cylinder or Mazda MX-5 Miata with 167hp for $24,220. Buyers could even opt for a Veloster Turbo with 201hp for $22,280 or a Volkswagen GTI with 200hp for $23,995. 

It seems like the FR-S will have a lot of competition at its price point and many of them offer more power at a lower price. 

The leaked e-mail only covered the FR-S. There is still no word on the price for the Subaru BRZ.
