Editor's Overview

Scion may be gone, but the FR-S lives on as the 2017 Toyota 86. In addition to the new badges and sales floor, the 2017 86 gets a revised nose and tail, a minor interior update, and a smidgen more power for manual-transmission models. Through it all, it remains a raucous and fun alternative to the Mazda MX-5 Miata.

Best performance car at this price point!

The most fun you can have driving for less than $50k. Great performance steering and low center of gravity allows the car to hug the road. A true joy to drive. Prefer the manual transmission.

This is the true driver's car - a 6-speed manual car, rear wheel drive with a lot of potential to be tuned. It could use a lot more power!

This car is the true drivers car. This is the perfect car for anyone who wants to enjoy a true rear wheel drive car. I don't like that it does not have a sunroof

Proper rear wheel drive fun sports car

Fantastic car with great agility and low centre of gravity. It isn't the fastest sports car on the market but its cornering easily outweighs the lack of power
