The Scion FR-S has only 200 horsepower, but its lack of steroidal, pavement-searing power is actually a key component of its winning personality. The FR-S is lightweight, with rear-wheel drive and a center of gravity somewhere down near Middle Earth. It rides on modest tires so that you can actually feel the chassis dance with the pavement without driving 150 mph. The FR-S transports you to a time before touchscreens and lane-departure systems did the thinking for you. It's old-school fun wrapped in a slinky new body. [From $24,955; scion.com]
