  • 2015 Subaru WRX spy shots

    We’ve been spying prototypes for Subaru’s next-generation WRX for months but soon the heavy camouflage will be coming off and the car ready for its debut on the world stage. That debut will reportedly take place at the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show in November, where Subaru is confirmed to make a world premiere. According to Automotive News (subscription required), we’ll see simultaneous debuts of the new WRX and its more extreme STI variant in L.A. Both cars will then go on sale in the first half of next year, as 2015 models. It’s likely we’ll also see the cars at...

    Subaru gave us a preview of its next-generation WRX at the 2013 New York Auto Show, where it unveiled the striking WRX concept and enticed us with tales that the final car would no longer resemble the humble Impreza with which it will continue to share a platform. We’ve since spied the...

    It looks like we’ll have to wait at least one more year for a new generation of the WRX as Subaru has confirmed that the current model will continue into the 2014 model year. The good news is that the car, plus its high-performance STI variant, still offer great value and plenty of bang for...

    Saying Goodbye To The Subaru WRX STI At The Isle Of Man

    The current Subaru WRX STI is a beast: powerful, capable, but something less than pretty. Despite its ungainly looks, it has made fans out of us and out of a large chunk of the populace. But it's due for replacement soon. So we took the opportunity to spend the better part of a week with the car in...

  • Subaru WRX STI With Duck Call Blow-Off Valve

    Imagine you're at a stoplight, and a Subaru WRX STI rolls up next to you, with the driver revving the engine. Seems normal right? What if when they revved the engine a duck call started coming from the car's engine bay? We know, try to contain your laughter. MUST WATCH: Brake Failure At 154 MPH Is Terrifying: Onboard Video This Subaru WRX STI has what we are calling the duck call blow-off valve modification. While it could possibly star in The Quack And The Furious someday, we aren't sure a starring role in a movie is necessary. But there's no question this modification is beyond hilarious...

    Subaru WRX Concept Video Preview: New York Auto Show

    The next-gen Subaru WRX will be leaving its past close twinning to the Impreza model in the dust for its next generation, but it will still share some of its underpinnings with the more pedestrian Subie. Best of all, while this WRX Concept isn't quite the real deal, it does reflect the core teem of...

    We’ll warn you in advance that the 2013 Subaru WRX Concept displayed at this week’s New York Auto Show may or may not be what the final product looks like. Subaru is hedging its bets, saying only that the show-stopping concept represents its “new design language” for the...

    Next-Gen Subaru WRX Previewed By New Concept

    Subaru has gone to some length to separate the WRX from its former pedestrian platform-mate, the Subaru Impreza. In 2012, Subaru dropped the Impreza name from the WRX and introduced an all-new Impreza; since then, only spy photos have hinted at what the next WRX would look like. Thanks to...

    DirtFish Rally School With Subaru Rally Team's David Higgins

    David Higgins is, if you're not familiar, the 2012 RallyAmerica National Champion driver (along with co-driver Craig Drew), and the lead wheelman in Subaru Rally Team USA's efforts. He's therefore, by definition and demonstration, one bad-ass driver. But in rally, it's not all about the driver (or...

    In the United States, Subaru’s ultimate all-wheel-drive hoon-mobile, the WRX STI, comes packing 305 horsepower and 290 pound-feet of torque. While that’s nothing to sneeze at, it’s nowhere near as impressive as it was just a few years back. These days, even a base V-6 Ford Mustang...

    Drive enough cars on enough racetracks and you become somewhat immune to speed-induced terror. Most of us here are completely comfortable hustling the latest models around circuits near and far, so it’s no longer a thrill to strap into the passenger seat and have a pro driver show us what a...

  • 2013 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Convertible

    Subaru unveiled the Advanced Tourer Concept at the 2011 Tokyo Motor Show last December, and we all thought it was previewing the next-generation Legacy and Outback. Motor Trend now reports that the concept actually hints at the next-generation WRX. The front-end design of the new WRX will reportedly take styling cues from the Advanced Tourer Concept, and the car will likely be available as both a hatchback and a sedan once again. Lexus is killing off the slow selling HS 250h hybrid just as the new ES 300h hybrid comes onto the market. The move isn't surprising as the HS 250h never really took...
