While we already knew the Scion FR-S and Subaru BRZ would be the beneficiaries of a bevy of add-on parts from both TRD and the aftermarket, we hadn't expected this: Tetsuya Tada, lead engineer for the joint Toyota-Subaru project, says a data logging system will soon be available, and it will be able to upload data to PlayStation game systems for sharing and comparison.

The idea behind the system--which can be retrofitted to existing cars--is that owners would log their real-world track days and then upload the data to their PlayStation systems. The data could then be shared, compared, and analyzed, reports Autocar. That's a pretty handy feature for drivers looking to improve their skills.

While there's no precise word yet on availability or pricing, it's amazing that it's even in the works. To date, only a handful of manufacturers have even experimented in this area, and most of those have been high-end luxury and sports car brands.

Add this perk to the list of reasons why any driving enthusiast would be happy to own a new Scion FR-S or Subaru BRZ.
