The FR-S is most easily compared against its near-twin from Subaru, the BRZ.
While the two are mechanically nearly identical, the Subaru version offers a slightly nicer interior and is available with built-in navigation from the factory, as well as a few other luxury items.
There are plenty of other rear-drive sports cars around the same size.
The Ford Mustang was recently redone for 2015 and offers a new engine menu as well as updated styling and an independent rear suspension for the first time.
Chevrolet will have a new Camaro for 2016, which promises to be lighter and have improved performance.
The Nissan 370Z is big on power but lacks the same perfect balance found in the Scion.
The Mazda MX-5 Miata is even less powerful than the FR-S, but it's lighter and handles nearly as well, and is also all-new for 2016.
Plus, it offers glorious, drop-top driving enjoyment.
