>It's expected to be a quiet show for Toyota. The S-FR, a tiny rwd coupe shown in October at the Tokyo Motor Show, won't be coming to the U.S. and therefore won't be in Detroit. Toyota's press conference on the second day of the show, squeezed between suppliers' press events, will feature news about its infotainment offerings.

ALL HOPE IS LOST

absolutely disgusting

that s-fr thing looks a bit odd, but sounds interesting

Noone would buy it anyway.

I would buy it

I genuinely feel for you burgers. At the same time I'm happy to be a European.
>>
Why is it not coming here?
>>
>>14217696
Because Americans only care about horsepower

That's why there is no 1.5L miata
>>
Nothing of a value is lost.
>>
>>14217696
it'd cannibalize frs sales

But anon, what about MUH FEELS

>>14217783
I enjoy the feels of going fast
>>
>>14217418
This was the only car I was looking forward to this year. Finally a RWD sports car at a cheap price with actual sensibility in design.
>>
>>14217786
Yeah I do to. I am honestly not sure I could give up the power I have now even though I really like the S-FR concept. But you can always add power to any engine.
>>
>>14217786
you probably get more of that at 60 in this than 160 in something like a m5
>>
Goddammit, the wife wanted one.

>tfw I did too.
>>
>>14217809
Yeah exactly. Some cars have a better fast driving experience than others and this is entirely dependant on design of the windshield, seating placement and the car itself.

I've found speed wise and not on boring highways, mini coopers give you a great going fast sensation. In other bigger cars, you don't even feel like you are ever going fast. Like in an airplane you have no perception you are travel at hundreds of miles per hour through the air.
>>
Toyota: hey guys we got this nice car you can use it to drive on the weekend or just for driving around.
Us: yes yes yes
Toyota: do you want it? Do you need it? Are you feeling it? Are you gonna have sex with it?
Us: that last one was weird but what the hell yes!
Toyota: okay we got a deal.
Us: yeeeeessss!
Toyota: it's not coming to the US.
Us:.....Fuck you!

Americans want crossovers and sedans, you're in the minority.
>>
Who cares lol
>>
>>14217708
Came here to post this. Honestly it's nothing to get hyped about.
>>
Well, we all saw that coming, really.
>>
>>14217707

This, here's all the evidence:

>>14217708
>>14217760

Americans are only capable of driving in a straight line, or turning slightly to the left. The way americans race and hoon is by just having the most powerful car and smashing the gas in the straight line.

Americans do not even consider competing their speeds by putting their driving skills to the test, they just want to put their ownership and money earning skills to the test with how powerful of a car they can buy.

ITT: People ACTUALLY hating on a 2000 pound 6 speed M/T RWD car that costs $12k USD

Jesus fucking christ. Fuck all of you and fuck the entirety of modern car culture. You faggots are the reason actual car enthusiasts can't have nice things.
>>
>>14219005
>that costs $12k USD

There was zero chance it could hit that price point in US showrooms.
>>
>>14218945
Nah, that's just idiots, could be anywhere in the world. An S-FR would be fantastic around mountain roads all over the US.
>>14219131
Dude, even if it was like 20k it would be fantastic, because it's just another option for new car buyers.

Fucking Toyota.

I guarantee we would have gotten it if it was trash econobox number 1716738392.

Fuck. Fuck you Toyota. I'm going to push my AE86 off a cliff.

You fucking ruined it all.
>>
>>14219177

Before blaming Toyota; is it even possible for a car that light (not made of carbon fiber) to pass US safety regs?
>>
Isn't that just the gt86?
>>
>>14219671
A smart car weights less.
The miata barely weights more.
>>
>>14219688
I think this was actually supposed to be smaller and lighter.
>>
>Honda won't give us the S660
>Toyota won't give us the S-FR
I'm starting to get tired of your bullshit japan
>>
>>14219690
Miata is a valid point, but weren't Smarts basically designed just to endure huge crashes from the beginning?
>>
>>14219715
isn't everything designed in the last 5 years?
>>
>>14219715
idk but weight doesnt matter.
the atom is legal, caterhams, other kit cars etc that all weigh less than 2100lbs
the smart cars crash test ratings arent very good.
>>
Does that mean that it won't be available in Canada aswell?
>>
damn, i wanted to LS swap one.
>>
>>14220428
Looks like you're gonna have to build a Lotus Seven clone around that LS now.
>>
>>14220434
>Lotus Seven clone
that lotus isn't exactly a daily.
>>
>>14220456
I don't think an LS swapped S-FR would make for a good daily, to be honest.
>>
>>14219154
Are you retarded ? It's a fact, I'm American
>>14219142
>america
>mountain road
>America
>any curves in a road
>>
>>14220467
as long as you kept it under 500hp it would be fine
tons of people labe LS swapped metas.
>>
>>14217418
fuck this planet
>>
>>14219154
>being this buttflustered you have a reputation for wanting one of three things (none of which the SFR is)
A) massive coupe with >600bhp
B) pickup truck
C) suv
>>
>>14220474
>ls swap miata
>ls swap small roadsters
Car culture is cancer
>>
>>14220474
I thought you were going for maximum lightness, powered by an LS.
I kinda want to find out what happens when someone makes an LS-powered Lotus Seven clone...
>>
>>14219701
What part of there not being a large enough market do you not understand? Just import one for fuck sake
>>
>>14220494
Eh its just american nature, everything needs a V8
>>
>>14220513
I hate v8

>>14220473
Stop living in a shithole and move to a state with fucking mountains
>>
>>14220549
Spoiled kid detected
>>
>>14219152
You know, if you had any idea on how markets work you might understand the situation a lot better and realise the mx5 is so prevailaint in American gay culture trying to compete with it Is not a profitable business plan, add on top that the market was small to begin with and it's just not looking good. The gt86 flopped in america so you don't get the sfr
>>
>>14220506
Import one? We have to wait 25 fucking years.

I'd seriously consider buying one if it came here. I'd stop taking the interstate to work and drive the curvy mountain road.
>>
>>14220473
>the midwest
>all of the US
I live in the midwest, there's even some curves near rivers. And I highly, highly doubt you actually are American.
>>
>>14221342
I don't live in the midwest, wish I did though
There are no curves I mountains for literal hundreds of miles
>>
lol all these people crying that they would've bought it.

more like you would complain that it's so expensive and underpowered compared to a fiesta st or something.
>>
>>14221374
Then where the fuck are you? South tip of Texas?
>>
>>14221393

This is probably true

>"Why won't fucking Japs make cheap fun cars again???? I WANT MY 90S BACK"

>FR-S
"Too slow lol, too expensive"

>WRX
"Fat and way too expensive"

and so on and so forth until

>Mitsubishi Mirage
"Too fucking expensive"
>>
>>14221453
They're all too fucking much dude
>>
>>14221469
>Mirage
>expensive
God no, it's one of the cheapest cars you can buy.
>FRS
>too expensive
Literally the same price as an AE86 inflation adjusted.
>>14221453
>WRX
I will give them fat, the car has aged pretty poorly. They've kept almost the same power and just kept adding weight.
>>
>>14221594
It's over $20k for a first gen impreza
>>
>>14220485
>making a list of vehicles you'll never be able to afford in your lifetime

It's okay europoor, let it all out.
>>
>>14221611
>20,000 dollars for a 1990s N/A sedan
Jesus christ what hellhole do you live in

Miami
It's the reason why our meet up was lackluster
cars are rare or overpriced

>The S-FR, a tiny rwd coupe shown in October at the Tokyo Motor Show, won't be coming to the U.S. and therefore won't be in Detroit
I was angry for a second. But seeing so many disappointments already, I'm just tired and sad.
>>
>>14221853
There's a $1300 one for sale right now dude. And it's the superior wagon version.

plenty of good roads in california

'00 OBS owner chiming in-these GF wagons are cramped inside, but the extra inch of ground clearance isn't as crossover-like as you'd think.
>its a rally car chassis bruh

Wagons are never in initial d or overrev for a reason
>>14221948
Not here
>>14221959
Nuh uh
>>
>>14221908
Then why we're you complaining about Impreza prices if you didn't want one? Also protip, an N/A impreza and your tercel are both utterly terrible for performance.
>>
>>14221948
North cali has some of the best roads in the country

Roadtripped from san fransisco to seattle last summer, it was beautiful.

Bullshit
Subaru is awd it's performance car

>>14221991
base imprezas are just econoboxes, no faster than civics or corollas

But it's not fwd

Has there been any other source for "not coming to the US?" Can't find anything other than that snippet from autonews. Wasn't Toyota planning pretty hard to release this shit here?
>>
>>14217696
>>14217901
>>14219152
>>14219177
I wonder why...?
>>
>>14221991
A WRX STI or regular WRX us a performance car. A base impreza is a slow as fuck commuter. It just happens to have power to the rear wheels as well as the front.
>>
>>14222494
That is the only thing I have seen. Also after rereading it, the article could just mean that the concept car isn't coming to the USA for the auto show and they weren't meaning it wasn't going to be released in the USA.
