On October 8, Toyota Motor Corporation announced its exhibit outline for the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show. One of the three models theyâ€™ll be unveiling is the S-FR Concept entry-level sports car.
With a slightly longer length than the Vitz at 3,990mm and a compact width of 1,695mm, the S-FR Concept inherits Toyotaâ€™s genes of lightweight sports cars. Though its engine capacity has yet to be revealed, the S-FR sports a front mid-ship layout and six-speed manual transmission. It also features a FR (front engine, rear-wheel drive) system and seats up to four passengers.
According to Mr. Kazuo Mori, chief engineer of the sports car division, â€œDesigns for the S-FR began with our desire to build a car that we liked. We wanted to create a sports car that our customers can enjoy using everyday and interact with.â€ Mr. Mori added that he hopes to get tons of feedback at the Tokyo Motor Show in order to develop this prototype.
