  • Welcome to Forever Pontiac

    We are a community of Pontiac enthusiasts. The purpose of our community is to keep alive the Pontiac spirit by sharing (or showing off) our cars, discussing Pontiac, helping each other work on our cars and find information, plus attend various meets/shows/etc... To aid discussion, sharing, event planning and selling of parts/cars/anything, we have various parts of the website to aid this from Forums to an online Garage to Classifieds to even a Document Download Repository. You can find links to these in our navigation above based on what each section helps with (discussion, local events, learning, etc...).

    We invite you to contribute, find help or just view some of our member's amazing cars! Don't forget, we also have great contests from time to time (like our Pontiac of the Month and yearly calendar contest) and our Pontiac This OR That, a fun game where you choose the best of two randomly selected Pontiacs from our online garage.

    We look forward to seeing you around!

Car and Driver: Toyota S-FR Racing Concept: Another Face for the Tiny Sports Car

Recommended Posts

Toyota S-FR Racing concept

-

Until now, we could only refer to Toyota’s S-FR sports-car concept has having a single face. It was a happy face, inspired by the classic Toyota Sports 800 sports car’s, and news that the little coupe would reach production made this year’s Tokyo auto show a fun one. For the Tokyo Auto Salon—essentially Japan’s SEMA—Toyota teamed up with Gazoo Racing to transform the S-FR’s face into a decidedly angrier one. The result is the S-FR Racing concept, a track-ready take on the S-FR that tosses out the original concept’s cutesy, wide-eyed guppy-mouthed countenance for a cutesy, wide-eyed guppy-mouthed face straddled by carbon-fiber canards, a splitter, and a vented hood. See? Angrier!

Toyota hasn’t fully elaborated yet on what Gazoo Racing is doing to its adorable little sports car, which is tinier than the Scion FR-S/Subaru BRZ and larger than a Miata, but we do know the S-FR Racing concept will have carbon-fiber spoilers, wicked center-lock wheels, and all of our attention when it debuts at the Tokyo Auto Salon in January. Our hope is that the stock S-FR concept’s four-cylinder engine has been beefed up even further, while the already light 2160-pound curb weight has been reduced. Although the S-FR is going into production, it isn’t yet clear whether or not the final product will come to the U.S. One thing’s for sure: This Racing concept has even less of a chance of coming here, mostly because it likely won’t be built at all. Still, we’d love for our assumptions to be proven wrong . . .
