Gazoo Scion FR-S Teased Before Tokyo Auto Salon, Hints At GT86-Based Supra

The Gazoo Racing Scion FR-S will debut at the Tokyo Auto Salon in January, so until that time we’ll have to make do with these teaser images. The Gazoo racing GT86 (Gazoo is Toyota Japan’s skunkworks team so they will naturally build their car out of the Toyota GT86 rather than the North American Scion FR-S) will be called the GRMN GT86 for Gazoo Racing Masters of the Nurburgring.

The Gazoo FR-S will have new smaller tail lights with four circular bulbs definitely inspired by the Supra. Using Supra tail lights could be a hint that the new Toyota Supra will be based on the GT86/ FR-S platform. That would be a throwback to the first Supras, which were Celicas (at the time Toyota’s rear-drive four-cylinder sports car) with six-cylinder engines stuffed inside.

New more angular head lights will make the Gazoo GRMN FR-S a completely unique version of the GT86/ FR-S.

The Gazoo Racing FR-S might also be the first version of the new 2.5-liter, 255-hp engine for the Scion FR-S and Subaru BRZ that will make its way into production in 2015.
