What Do You Think Of The Toyota S-FR Concept?

I absolutely adore small, sporty cars, and so whenever something like the S-FR concept debuts at an auto show, I spend the next six months trying to figure out if it will, in fact, be built. Toyota’s history is rich enough with sporty cars that its designers can always dip into a well of styling cues: I see some Sports 800, FX-S Concept, and Sera in its shape.
This concept is basically a Mazda MX-5 Miata-sized Scion FR-S, albeit with two very small rear seats. And what gets me is that when looking at the photos of the car, it all seems so close to production and so real that I almost expect to be able to visit my local Toyota dealer and take a test drive.
I’m exactly the sort of enthusiast to get excited about an inexpensive 130 horsepower, 2,160-lb coupe that has little in the way of features beyond its six-speed manual transmission.
It’s said to be on its way into production—so what do you think of the Toyota S-FR Concept?
(I’ve already put my Fiat 500 Abarth on notice.)
