As a regular reader and colleauge at the other side of the world, let me offer you the rather nice film we've made about the driver's car of the day. We shot from dawn till dusk for four days, taking the Toyota GT 86 (which you’ll lovingly recognize as the Scion FR-S) from Barcelona to Budapest by the most sinuous roads possible. Then we spent another day filming it on a racetrack in Hungary, pitting it against my angry AE86 race car. Then we spent the best part of three weeks editing the footage until we learned to hate every single frame of it. I think it’s the most beautiful film we’ve ever made. It must be, because the FR-S is a hugely important car.
Not because it’s cheap and tail-happy. Neither of those traits are evident at first. The FR-S is important because this is the car our kids will rice and race to oblivion, learning to heel-and-toe and oversteer the last drops of whatever petrol replacement cars will be burning a decade from now. This is likely to be the sports car of the last driving generation, so take your time to get to know it. Resist the temptation to skip to the second half with all the hoonage.
Please lean back and enjoy.

Oh, and one last thing: Jalopnik has already featured this film yesterday, but I don't think that this is an issue. They didn't buy it, I offered it to them for free because I have good friends working there, the same way that I'm offering it now for you because of all the great no-nonsense information you have been providing, and Mike's excellent advice on my 350Z-powered Datsun Z build.
