Toyota GT 86, Scion FR-S (Not Subaru BRZ!) “Guess The Price” Contest!

We created a bit of a stir on Twitter yesterday when we took a whispered guess, impolitically converted currencies, and claimed it as a fact. I mean, what’s all the fuss about? But since you’re such an educated bunch, we’re going to see if you can do better AND give you the opportunity to win some free car-related swag.

So, do you want to win a Nissan GT-R 1GB memory stick/key fob, Garant SnoFlex, or a Garant winter hat? Fuck YA you do!

All you have to do is be the closest to guess the TOTAL MSRP (that includes freight and PDI) for the Scion FR-S (NOT the Subaru BRZ, which will also be sold here), also known as the Toyota FT-86, IN CANADA and IN CANADIAN DOLLARS. We can’t emphasize the last point enough. For our international readers who are unfamiliar with the Great White North, a VW GTI starts at USD$24,465 in the States and a frankly ludicrous CDN$30,740 in Canada. No joke.

So how do you enter?

Entries can be submitted in the comment section below or by Twitter mention to @carenvy.

The contest closes when Toyota Canada sends out a press release stating the official price. The winner, the person with the closest guess, will be e-mailed for a mailing address and their choice of prize. The next closest guesser will be e-mailed and asked for their choice, and so on and so forth. Winners will have one week to reply, or the next closest guesser will be contacted.

Good luck all you Toyobaru fanatics!

    Scion FR-S. My guess, $28,998 base price.

  2. banovsky says:

    $27,495 base
    $1,490 Freight/PDI


  3. So, Peter and I have a separate side-wager which actually sparked this whole thing. He and I made an over/under on the price of a 2012 GTI plus freight/PDI. I took the under.

    From down here in the Antipodes it’s sort of tricky to figure out CDN pricing so I will go with a formula instead of an actual number. My guess is whatever a steel-roofed MX-5 is plus 12.5%. If Mazda Canada do squirly things with specs, take the average of the price for the highest and lowest spec steel-roofed MX-5.

    • Peter says:

      At $27.485, the most basic cloth-topped MX-5 is 12% MORE than the FR-S. You nailed it precisely backwards, Ben.
