    2014 WRX entirely new.

    Subaru has decided to split up the Impreza and WRX. They also plan on taking the new WRX back to the WRC. The new Subaru WRX will arrive 2014 and it will be in a completely different line from the Impreza. The new WRX will be designed as a sport coupe with a shorter wheelbase allowing much better handling. A source from Motor Trend revealed: "Apart from a few nuts and bolts, every part on the WRX will be unique, even the engine and body. Obviously the WRX's platform will be inherited from the new Impreza, but it will be radically modified and significantly shortened."

    I dont know if this is old news to everyone but I didnt know this. Cant wait to see what they come up with.

    2014 WRX entirely new.

    It's been discussed in other threads. More amazing than Subaru wanting to take on Citroen in the WRC is that Motor Trend magazine still exists. Mind boggling.

    Rumors and conjecture.

    That is all anyone knows at this time.

    The WRX wouldn't survive the start of the first stage at the first stage it would compete in.

    Live down the street from a lead engineer from Subaru North America. They have been talking about the split for years.

    Can't get much out of him about the changes to the car b/c he is pretty tight lipped - as he should be.

    I highly doubt they would ever consider WRC unless they knew what it was going to take to be competitive. If they are changing the car it is b/c these are changes necessary for modern WRC and the engineers and finance guys are all on the same page about the value of WRC to the company.

    I think it will happen. Really its not to far off, I was going to trade my 10 for a 12 but I think I will hold off for sure. They also said though that they plan to do a few more special editions such as the SEMA orange and black one before 2014. Those will be nice to look foward to as well.

    DO NOT READ TOO MUCH INTO THIS. Everything is rumors and speculation until Subaru unveils the new car. This topic has been beaten to death on other threads. Check out this one: 2014 Subaru testing

    Oh boy yet another report of a Coupe! (They do this every year)

    There have been as many rumors of WRX Coupes as end-of-the-world prophecies.

    every rumor is speculation. If its one thing that Subaru is actually good at, it's that they never leak any real factual information.

    That's because Subaru never engineers any real changes that can be leaked!
