This 2004 Subaru WRX STi Could Be a Future Collectable
The first things that come to mind when I hear the words "Subaru STI" are: sports sedan, blue finish, and gold-painted wheels. However, The WRX STI is dead for now, and the STI as we know it might come to an end as Subaru looks to use the STI designation for its hybrid lineup. Pretty soon it will become pretty much impossible to find an STI model with a simple gasoline engine, so you should take advantage of this offer and buy yourself a 2004 STI - which, if you ask us is the best Subaru you can buy!
Subaru’s STI Brand Isn’t Dead, But It Might As Well Be
When we talk about Subaru, STI is where all the action happens. Subaru Technica International is the Japanese brand’s division that’s responsible for all motorsports and performance-related projects. The division was founded in 1988, and while the first Subaru rally car was based on the Legacy, it was the Impreza that benefited the most from STI’s know-how. That said, while we are used to seeing the full-on STI version of Subaru’s compact sedan right after every WRX debuts, we might not be so lucky with the latest generation. This begs the question, what is Subaru’s STI brand up to?
Is Subaru Trying To Intentionally Kill The Manual BRZ?
The Toyota GR86 and by extension its twin, the Subaru BRZ, have been highly anticipated for 2022. While driver involvement is the main purpose of the compact Japanese sports car, safety is another key aspect of any modern car, and now, we know how the GR86/BRZ performs on the J-NCAP crash tests. Unfortunately, the results are less than satisfactory, but not for the reasons you may think.
U-Drag Race: The Subaru WRX AWD Gets Spanked By A FWD Hyundai Elantra N!
The folks at ‘Edmunds’ are back with another U-Drag race. The first two that they arranged were pretty exciting, and we don’t expect this one to be any less. The contenders here are sports cars from the budget segment – the Subaru WRX and the Hyundai Elantra N. Which car are you placing your bets on?
Subaru Canceled The WRX STI Because Regulations Change Way Too Quickly
Three months into 2022 and two years into one of the hardest decades in recent memory, and here comes Subaru killing off the WRX STI with next to no explanation. In Subaru’s press release, it said that “Subaru Corporation is exploring opportunities for the next-generation Subaru WRX STI, including electrification” but also said that a next-gen STI with an ICE “will not be produced based upon the new WRX platform.” So the hints were there that the brand could be working on, say, a hybrid-powered WRX STI (or an equivalent rally-bred car) or that an electric variant of some kind could arrive sometime in the future. Now, however, we’re learning a little about why Subaru canceled the WRX STI, and it does make sense, to some extent.
A Dyno Test Reveals How Much Power The 2022 Toyota GR86 Actually Makes
The Toyota GR86 is one of the most anticipated cars for 2022, and now that it is on sale, many wonder if the new engine is powerful enough. Its predecessor, the GT86 and later 86 was powered by the FA20 engine, which although is a good starting platform, left a lot to be desired in terms of stock performance. The new GR86 has a bigger, FA24 engine, which is rated at 228 horsepower and 184 pound-feet (250 Nm), but how true are these numbers? YouTube channel FTspeed helps us find out through a series of dyno tests.

The Coolest Cars in the World
If you are in the market for a car, you will be surprised at the number of offerings you get in every single segment. Right from your Nissan Versa to a Ferrari F8 Tributo; there is competition in every segment. Whether you’re into classic cars, imported models or luxury items, you will be spoilt for choices. But, not every car you see is a cool one. There are a number of factors in determining whether a car is cool or not. There’s the exterior, the interior, the performance, and most importantly, it’s every individual’s opinion. You may or may not agree with some of the entries here, but here’s a look at the coolest cars of 2021.
2022 Subaru Levorg STI Sport R Is The WRX Wagon America Needs
The Subaru WRX’s launch was controversial, to say the least. It was mostly driven by the fact that the sports sedan looks like a crossover, no thanks to its sheer amount of body cladding. But what if you want a WRX, but in a body style that enthusiasts actually want, and with a design that’s arguably more attractive? Say hello to the Subaru Levorg STI Sport R.
2022 Subaru WRX S4
With the death of the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution, many started to fat-shame the Subaru STI. With the latest generation recently unveiled, many hope that the Japanese, rally-inspired sedan will redeem itself. And while officially, a full-on STI model is yet to arrive, the recently unveiled, Japan-only WRX S4, is a good sign that this may happen soon.
The Perfect Build: An LS6-Powered Subaru BRZ
We can all agree that, while the Subaru BRZ is a fun car to throw around, it doesn’t come with a lot of power, out of the box. Yes, the new model addressed that, but horsepower still isn’t the main thing here. With this in mind, we bring your attention to a car listed on carsandbids.com – a Subaru BRZ that not only lacks the power deficit of the stock car but may actually pack more than some can handle.
JDM Drag Race: 495 HP Mitsubishi Lancer EVO 7 Versus 488 HP Subaru Impreza WRX STI
Whether it’s between stock or modified cars, drag racing is always a good way to pit two (or more) machines against each other. It’s even more epic when said machines are some of the biggest rivals in rallying history. Today’s dose of drag racing comes from the YouTube channel Officially Gassed and is between a modified Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution and a modified Subaru Impreza WRX STI with about the same power.
Does This Rendering Preview the New Subaru WRX STI?
We recently gazed upon the new 2022 Subaru WRX and, although it was met with mixed reviews, our hopes are that the next STI will (finally) be something ground-breaking. As with any highly anticipated model, we are already seeing some pretty good renderings of how the next STI would look like. Arnold Verghese – an automotive CG artist and motion designer is giving us a very plausible design preview of the 2022 (2023?) STI. If you browse his other work. you’ll also see that he has done other Subaru designs in the past, but we believe he nailed it with this one.
2022 Subaru BRZ
The Subaru BRZ enters its second generation with a total redesign similar to what we have seen with its brother from another mother, the GR 86. They share the same heart and behave almost similarly but to find out which is better, make sure to stick around this in-depth review of the new 2022 Subaru BRZ.
