WRX Concept may yet live, please let it be true

// Posted in Subaru

When Subaru presented the world with the WRX Concept in New York last year the world responded with admiration and desire. When Subaru presented the world with the production WRX in LA last year the world responded with a giant facepalm. But, word on the street says the good WRX, the concept, may replace the […]

VIDEO: 11 minutes of Juha

Juha Kankkunen is rallying royalty. His four world championships (1986, 1987, 1991, 1993) and 23 rally wins (a record at the time) have earned him that honour. Here’s a fan made tribute video showcasing some of Kankkunen’s best work. You’ll enjoy the sights and sounds we’re sure and when you make it to the end […]

Audi S3 Sportback v Subaru WRX STi

Here’s a pretty simple video clip from French publication Motorsport Magazine comparing the Audi S3 and the Subaru WRX STi. It’s an acceleration run from 0–250km/h and it would seem that S tronic gives the S3 the edge. Although, they’re pretty slick gearchanges in the STi. S3 Sportback: 221kW/380Nm, 6-speed S tronic, quattro all-wheel drive, […]

Wake up Jeff!

// Posted in Subaru

Here’s some leaked images of the all-new Subaru Liberty/Legacy, which is due for its official reveal in Chicago next week. Subaru hasn’t delivered a decent looking Liberty since the fourth-gen. What’s going on? We think the bloke who designed it must be called Jeff and it’s all his fault. Wake up, Jeff, everybody’s struggling Wake […]

Super Bowl XLVIII ad watch

In case you’ve missed it there’s a big game of football on tonight. And we don’t mean the Man City v Chelsea game either. It’s American football and, of course, it’s the Super Bowl. That means all the big wig advertising agencies have been locked away in rooms for months trying to come up with […]

Subaru gives new WRX STi a 5-minute sticker job

Subaru has released this photo of the new WRX STi, in this case ready to take on the Nürburgring 24 hour race for the seventh year in a row. Except it’s not a photo at all, just a crudely cobbled together p-chop. I can tell by the pixels. Oh well, we’ll have the real thing […]

Despite being less than a week from its official debut can anyone say they are surprised to see images of the all-new Subaru WRX STi ahead of schedule? Admittedly it’s not starting with a great canvas, the recently released WRX, but this new STi version does look a bit better. Even if only because it […]

Subaru has confirmed it will be revealing its brand new WRX STi at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit next week. While the new STi will be based on the new WRX (revealed in LA last year), we’re still not totally sure what engine it will feature. It could be powered by an […]

Subaru Australia to offer new WRX online

// Posted in Subaru

A brief tweet from Subaru_Active has given notice that Australian buyers will be able to pre-order the new WRX online. At this stage there’s no official comment from Subaru Australia that we’re aware of, but it seems as though the online sales approach offered for the BRZ has worked well enough to adopt it for […]
