Cool used car of the future: FT-86/FR-S/BRZ STI

There’s a lot going on with the Toyota FT-86/Scion FR-S/Subaru BRZ STI concepts so bear with us as we try to break it down. These three compact sports cars have been an ongoing project between Toyota and Subaru. To be clear, The Toyota FT-86 and Scion FR-S are pretty much the same car. The FR-S will be sold under the Scion nameplate in the States to appeal to Scion’s younger demographic. The FT-86, meanwhile, will be sold in Japan and other Asian markets as a Toyota. Pictured below is the Scion FR-S concept.

Putting it into park: Weekend Linkage

Rocktober continues on but the week has come to a close. Here’s what has happened the last five days in world of autos and it involves a Chinese company bailing out a Swedish company, pretty pictures of cars and the Cadillac of user experiences. Literally.

The Monday Grind

The weekend has come and gone, unless you have Columbus Day off. If you are off today, consider the title of this post irrelevant because you are certainly not on the grind. If you are on-the-clock and crunching those numbers, metaphorically speaking, read on work-warrior.

Cool used car of the future: Chevrolet Camaro Intimidator

At Mojo Motors, we sell used cars and there are some really great models to be had right now, like this Subaru Impreza or this Chevrolet Equinox. The thing is, there are other great cars we love, but can’t include in our listings because they’re still concepts or too brand-spanking new. That’s why we share these vehicles in our segment, “Cool used car of the future.” This week we are featuring the Chevrolet Camaro Intimidator.
