SEMA 2014 – Scion FR-S T1 Targa Isn’t A Convertible, But It’s Halfway There

Scion’s FR-S Targa SEMA 2014 car gives us new hope for multiple body styles in the FR-S. The FR-S Targa has removable center roof section (hence the name) rear window louvres that will hopefully make their way to the aftermarket and a widebody kit.

The FR-S T1 was built by Cartel Customs for Scion’s SEMA booth and sits on KW Coilovers and forged 19-inch wheels. The targa top isn’t the only custom bit on the FR-S T1, it also has a custom widebody kit with a center mounted exhaust. It’s not all show either, a Greddy turbo kit has been installed along with a Wilwood big brake kit.

Like Bon Jovi said, we’re halfway there, woah-oh living on a prayer. We still don’t have an FR-S convertible (besides the original concept car), but the Targa shows that Scion wants more than just a coupe out of the FR-S.

An FR-S Targa isn’t a convertible, you can’t just toss a surfboard in and go to the beach and your back seat passengers won’t get much of a tan, but it would make the FR-S a closer competitor to the Mazda MX-5 Miata.
