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.

The ultimate gallery of movie cars

Dumb and Dumber Mutt Cutts Mojo Motors ImageHere’s a quick and unsophisticated history lesson. Films become popular in the early 1900’s, right around the same time as automobiles. The first mainstream feature film in America was released in 1912. The first automobile, the Ford Model T, was released in 1908. Since then, nearly one bazillion films have been produced and probably just as many cars too. Over one hundred years later, cars have become integral parts, even characters, in some of the greatest movies.

The following gallery features some of the most popular movie cars based on responses from our Facebook fans. This is the ultimate gallery of movie cars, but not the ultimate ultimate gallery of movie cars. This way, nobody can call out the Mojo Motors Blog for neglecting to include a totally sweet movie car, but go ahead, flame away in the comments. If you’re looking for the ultimate ultimate gallery of movie cars goes to the Internet Movie Car Database. Until then, check out these 28 rides from Hollywood after making the jump.
