As a kick-off to the new 2013 Scion FR-S vehicle launch, Scion delivered the first 86 Scion FR-S in the US to their new owners via event parties. The Portland office of Department Zero was privileged to host the delivery of the very first FR-S in the NW Region on May 8th, at theSLATE, a Scion powered flex venue managed by Department Zero.

The evening began with a poker run open to all current Scion owners, the winner of which also received an FR-S, albeit in miniature via an RC version. After a short presentation from the Scion regional representatives and local dealer, Kyle received the keys to his Raven FR-S and drove it away with full bragging rights as the first FR-S in the NW!

This well attended event attracted current Scion enthusiasts, new converts to the brand, Portland metro dealer representatives, as well as the regional and national Scion management teams.  The event was covered by film crews and received local press.
