Report: Next-gen Scion FR-S could use Mazda Miata MX-5 platform

Some news is floating in about the next generation Scion FR-S, which¬†Australia’s Motoring says could use the new Mazda Miata MX-5’s platform as a starting point.

This seems possible since the Scion/Subaru/Toyota trio don’t seem to be selling as well as the brands anticipated. They want to keep the car around, but could use the Miata platform to cut corners instead of making their own. And that’s ok since the Miata platform is a great place to start.

Not much is known, but the lightweight Miata is basically synonymous to the Scion/Subaru/Toyota trio in that both are front-engined, rear-wheel drive, with a standard limited-slip diff, low weight, and minimal approach.

And ultimately, both are for absolute pure driving fun.

    I’d rather have an MX-5 a true roadster for 25 years. These others I’ll just see a vehicle with Miata guts anyways. Especially with the new 2016 look. It’s a little meaner looking thank goodness lol thank God for a manlier looking Miata.
