This 2004 Subaru WRX STi Could Be a Future Collectable

This 2004 Subaru WRX STi Could Be a Future Collectable

And the current bid is more than affordable!

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

Subaru’s STI Brand Isn’t Dead, But It Might As Well Be

The STI, as we know it, could be dead, but it may come back as a hybrid

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 Subaru BRZ and the Toyota GR86 fail crash testing for the dumbest reason

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.

Subaru Canceled The WRX STI Because Regulations Change Way Too Quickly

Subaru Canceled The WRX STI Because Regulations Change Way Too Quickly

What does it mean for the Subaru WRX STI, and the STI brand as a whole? Well, let’s just say, electrification will play a key role from here on out

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.

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.

2022 Subaru Levorg STI Sport R Is The WRX Wagon America Needs

If you’ve always wanted a brand-new Subaru WRX but you hated its sheer amount of body cladding, then you’re in luck, if you live in Japan

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.

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.
