Scion sketches SEMA spread starring Slayer, skateboarder

([url]http://www.autoblog.com/photos/scion-2014-sema-concept/#photo-2952255)I[/url] was in Nashville last weekend for a friend's bachelor party. It's all rather fuzzy, but I do recall that my friends and I found it hilarious to request Slayer every time one of the country groups on the Broadway strip asked for a specific song to be played. While there were a few good sports, most didn't find it too funny, largely because country music and Slayer don't mix all that well. Actually, Slayer and a lot of things don't mix too well. Like Slayer and Scion ([url]http://www.autoblog.com/scion/[/url]), Toyota's slowly withering youth brand.

This mish-mash hasn't prevented the Japanese budget brand from teaming with the metal group for a concept vehicle based on the tC ([url]http://www.autoblog.com/scion/tc/[/url]) coupe (shown above). If the Slayer link is a bit too extreme, Scion has a more mainstream xB ([url]http://www.autoblog.com/scion/xb/[/url]), styled by skateboarder Riley Hawk on the way. Both new vehicles will be shown at the upcoming SEMA show ([url]http://www.autoblog.com/sema/[/url]), but Scion has opted to release a pair of sketches of both aftermarket creations ahead of the Las Vegas expo.

It's hard to tell what kind of exterior changes have been made to the tC, although Scion says the cabin now boasts a 32-inch monitor, as well as a heavily revamped stereo. As you can see, it will say "Slayer" on the door, in the band's stylized script.

"Slayer's fans are going to be excited when we reveal what a metal-inspired Scion tC looks like," Slayer guitarist Kerry King said in a statement. "Working with Scion has given us another way to reach new audiences and inspire them to keep going down their own paths."

As for the xB, the biggest change is the higher roof, which provides accommodations for both an upgraded stereo and skateboards. The overall inspiration for the boxy five-door was the 1970s, and it's been equipped suitably, with an 8-track player, shag carpets and wood-grain paneling.

Check back for more on these Scions, as well as the rest of the lunacy from the 2014 SEMA Show when it kicks off on November 4 in Las Vegas. Until then, scroll down ([url]http://www.autoblog.com/2014/09/20/scion-tc-xb-slayer-skateboard-sema-sketch-official/#continued[/url]) for the official press release.Continue reading Scion sketches SEMA spread starring Slayer, skateboarder ([url]http://www.autoblog.com/2014/09/20/scion-tc-xb-slayer-skateboard-sema-sketch-official/[/url])

Scion FR-S Release Series 1.0 hits dealers with $29,990 MSRP
Sep 10, 2014 - 10:35 PM - by Scion Forums
Filed under: Car Buying ([url]http://www.autoblog.com/category/carbuying/[/url]), Coupe ([url]http://www.autoblog.com/category/coupes/[/url]), Scion ([url]http://www.autoblog.com/scion/[/url])

([url]http://www.autoblog.com/photos/2014-scion-fr-s-release-series-1-0-new-york-2014/#photo-2542007[/url])

If you're familiar with Scion ([url]http://www.autoblog.com/scion/[/url]), you likely know all about the Release Series special editions, and back in April, the automaker showed us the first RS example of its FR-S coupe ([url]http://www.autoblog.com/2014/04/16/scion-fr-s-release-series-1.0-new-york-2014/[/url]). At that time, we knew the price would come in somewhere "under $30,000," and while that's technically true, the final number is a whopping ten bucks below that $30k mark. Yep, the yellowest Scion can be yours for $29,990, not including $770 for destination.

Only 1,500 of the FR-S ([url]http://www.autoblog.com/scion/fr-s/[/url]) RS 1.0 coupes will be made, all fitted with TRD lowering springs, a quad exhaust system, TRD steering wheel, HID headlamps with LED running lights, a TRD shift knob, pushbutton start, black seats and, of course, that aero kit. The $29,990 price applies to cars that use the six-speed manual transmission. If you want the automatic, be prepared to shell out $31,090.

Scroll down ([url]http://scionforum.org/2014/09/10/scion-fr-s-release-series-pricing-official/#continued[/url]) for more details about the special Scion. And if the super-yellow coupe isn't really lighting your fire, you can always opt for its Subaru sister, in a lovely shade of blue ([url]http://www.autoblog.com/2014/05/29/2015-subaru-brz-series-blue-official/).Continue[/url] reading Scion FR-S Release Series 1.0 hits dealers with $29,990 MSRP ([url]http://www.autoblog.com/2014/09/10/scion-fr-s-release-series-pricing-official/[/url])

New drifting world record set in Toyota GT86

([url]http://scionforum.org/2014/07/30/drifting-world-record-toyota-gt86-video/[/url])

We have entered a drifting arms race. Last year, BMW ([url]http://www.autoblog.com/bmw/[/url]) smashed the Guinness World Record for the longest drift by hanging the tail out for 51.3 miles around a wet skid pad ([url]http://www.autoblog.com/2013/05/15/bmw-sets-guinness-record-for-longest-drift-with-new-m5-w-video/[/url]) in an M5 ([url]http://www.autoblog.com/bmw/m5/[/url]) at the BMW Performance Driving School in South Carolina. That beat the previous milestone of nearly seven miles. Now, Bimmer's record is up in smoke as well and is in the possession of a Toyota ([url]http://www.autoblog.com/toyota/[/url]).

German driver Harald Müller pummeled the old record to drift for 89.55 miles around a 0.15-mile (235.5-meter) course in Samsun, Turkey, in a Toyota GT86 ([url]http://www.autoblog.com/tag/toyota+gt86/[/url]) (or Scion FR-S ([url]http://www.autoblog.com/scion/fr-s/[/url]) as it's known in the US). According to the Guinness World Records website, it took him 612 laps and 2 hours, 25 minutes and 18 seconds ([url]http://www.guinnessworldrecords.com/world-records/6000/longest-vehicle-drift[/url]) to manage the achievement. Sit back to watch a few minutes of the German's two and a half hours behind the wheel with the tail out.Continue reading New drifting world record set in Toyota GT86 ([url]http://www.autoblog.com/2014/07/30/drifting-world-record-toyota-gt86-video/[/url])

Scion xB to be replaced by Auris hatchbach, iQ dead after 2014
Jul 29, 2014 - 12:30 AM - by Scion Forums
Filed under: Budget ([url]http://www.autoblog.com/category/economy/[/url]), Hatchback ([url]http://www.autoblog.com/category/hatchbacks/[/url]), Scion ([url]http://www.autoblog.com/scion/[/url]), Toyota ([url]http://www.autoblog.com/toyota/[/url])

([url]http://www.autoblog.com/photos/2013-toyota-auris/[/url])

Scion ([url]http://www.autoblog.com/scion/[/url]) seemed like such a good idea when it was first launched. Toyota's aim was to provide young people with stylish, affordable cars that would serve as a gateway to the automaker's family of products. It was also supposed to be something of an incubator for new ideas that were too radical for its more conservative Toyota ([url]http://www.autoblog.com/toyota/[/url]) and Lexus ([url]http://www.autoblog.com/lexus/[/url]) brands. Over a decade since its launch, the brand has languished, and today's showroom is populated by slow-selling and aging vehicles that have often been slow to receive upgrades. However, there may be a bright spot on the imminent horizon, as there are reportedly a slate of new models on the way over the next three years.

According to a model timeline published by Automotive News, the Scion lineup is about to get a major overhaul ([url]http://www.autonews.com/article/20140728/OEM04/307289977/scions-entry-level-reload-means-big-changes[/url]). First, the boxy xB ([url]http://www.autoblog.com/scion/xb/[/url]) may finally be going to the big refrigerator box in the sky, to be replaced by a version of the more conventionally styled Auris ([url]http://www.autoblog.com/tag/toyota+auris/[/url]) hatchback (pictured above) from overseas markets in early 2015. Later next year, the xD ([url]http://www.autoblog.com/scion/xd/[/url]) will also allegedly bow out in favor of a new hatchback based on the Mazda2 ([url]http://www.autoblog.com/mazda/mazda2/[/url]) (thanks to a recently signed platform-sharing deal ([url]http://www.autoblog.com/2014/03/08/toyota-will-use-mazda-skyactiv-engines/[/url])). For 2016, the sporty tC ([url]http://www.autoblog.com/scion/tc/[/url]) hatchback is also said to get a redesign, and interestingly enough, a Corolla ([url]http://www.autoblog.com/toyota/corolla/)-based[/url] compact crossover could join the ranks, too.

While those changes should boost sales volume, there's also news that's sure to make enthusiasts happy. Automotive News cites company executives who confirm a second-generation FR-S ([url]http://www.autoblog.com/scion/fr-s/[/url]) is on the way in early 2017. A Subaru ([url]http://www.autoblog.com/subaru/[/url]) exec also recently gave a similar confirmation ([url]http://www.autoblog.com/2014/07/08/subaru-brz-second-generation-confirmed/[/url]) that it was working on another BRZ ([url]http://www.autoblog.com/subaru/brz/[/url]).

Finally, as first rumored last year ([url]http://www.autoblog.com/2013/10/27/aston-ceo-claims-cygnet-cancelled-because-toyota-is-dropping-iq/[/url]), the little iQ ([url]http://www.autoblog.com/scion/iq/[/url]) will likely sing its swan song at the end of 2014. The news hardly comes as a surprise. Through June, Scion has sold just just 1,227 of its Smart ([url]http://www.autoblog.com/smart/)-sized[/url] commuter nationwide, down 47 percent from last year.Scion xB to be replaced by Auris hatchbach, iQ dead after 2014 ([url]http://www.autoblog.com/2014/07/28/scion-xb-iq-auris-toyota/[/url]) originally appeared on Autoblog ([url]http://www.autoblog.com[/url]) on Mon, 28 Jul 2014 14:15:00 EST.

Lightweight Toyota GT86 spotted on Nordschleife with carbon panels, upgraded aero
Jun 25, 2014 - 7:35 PM - by Scion Forums
Filed under: Spy Photos ([url]http://www.autoblog.com/category/spyphotos/[/url]), Coupe ([url]http://www.autoblog.com/category/coupes/[/url]), Performance ([url]http://www.autoblog.com/category/sports/[/url]), Scion ([url]http://www.autoblog.com/scion/[/url]), Toyota ([url]http://www.autoblog.com/toyota/[/url])

([url]http://www.autoblog.com/photos/toyota-gt86-carbon-fiber-spy-shots/[/url])

We've seen (and frankly reported on) so many rumors of more powerful and performance-focused versions of the Subaru BRZ ([url]http://www.autoblog.com/subaru/brz/[/url]), Toyota GT86 ([url]http://www.autoblog.com/tag/toyota+gt86/[/url]) and Scion FR-S ([url]http://www.autoblog.com/scion/fr-s/[/url]) at this point that haven't materialized that, at this point, we're almost tired of them. Almost. But what we have here was enough to pique our jaded interests as only a carbon-bodied sports car on the Nürburgring ([url]http://www.autoblog.com/tag/nurburgring/[/url]) could do.

What we're looking at is, well, we don't quite know, to tell you the truth. What we can tell is that it's a Toyota GT86 (Scion FR-S for us) wearing new wheels and a carbon-fiber hood, roof, racing-spec rear wing and subtle lip spoiler. The vents in the hood indicate that the prototype in question could be packing an upgraded engine to go with the lighter body panels and upgraded aero, and the interior (at least as far as we can see) looks pretty well stripped out.

The right-hand drive configuration tells us this is either destined for former territories of the British Empire or for the racetrack. Considering the ride height, full glass and apparent lack of roll cage, our money's on this prototype is being developed for the Japanese Domestic Market, where Toyota ([url]http://www.autoblog.com/toyota/[/url]) badges the sports car simply as the 86. We can always hope, though, that some version makes it into Scion ([url]http://www.autoblog.com/scion/[/url]) showrooms in North America... we just won't get our hopes up too high.Lightweight Toyota GT86 spotted on Nordschleife with carbon panels, upgraded aero ([url]http://www.autoblog.com/2014/06/24/lightweight-toyota-gt86-scion-frs-spy-shots/[/url]) originally appeared on Autoblog ([url]http://www.autoblog.com[/url]) on Tue, 24 Jun 2014 11:05:00 EST.
