    Toyota S-FR Previews a Mazda MX-5 Miata Fighter


    Toyota unveiled its adorable S-FR concept at the Tokyo Motor Show, previewing a sporty little Mazda MX-5 Miata fighter.

    A diminutive 2+2, the S-FR has a front-engine and rear-wheel-drive layout and will be slightly smaller than the Toyota GT86/Scion FR-S with a 3,990-mm length, 1,695-mm width and 2,480-mm wheelbase. No power/engine details have been released yet, but expect the car to weigh about 2,000 lbs and output about 130 hp from a four-cylinder engine.

    Promising a back-to-basics sporty drive, expect the S-FR to be a raw, lightweight car that isn’t that fast, but is fun to drive quickly, just like the Miata it will compete against. And there’s more good news: It will come with a six-speed manual transmission and an all-round independent suspension.

    This amazing little car is right up enthusiast alley and is sure to become a hit if it was put into production. Sadly, there is no official word yet on if the S-FR will see real roads.

    Wow - 2000 lb. is a throwback to the '60s if they can do it. 130 hp will go far if they can keep the weight down. My '67 Datsun 2000 had about 165 hp and it hauled quite nicely with a 5-speed. Only downside I can see is the largemouth bass / guppy look for the front end. Serious fun or just a kiddie-car look? You decide.
