    You have to understand, the regulars here see these same photos and rumors pop up regularly, when there are in fact no facts released by subaru at this point, as Ray said. I hope no one (myself included) came across too strongly in this thread; it's hard to remind ourselves that not everyone spends an inordinate amount of time on a Subaru forum and therefore what we consider common knowledge is sometimes not!
    Well said, Thank you. I'm a Mustang guy. I have had 18 of them and currently a Shelby GT500 vert for summer fun. I understand. I'm on the Mustang forums all the time. I had a brand new 05 WRX along with a Caliber SRT4 and countless others. I am looking for a nice fast fun commuter. To be honest there is something about this 13 WRX that doesn't sit with me well but I want it. I may wait for the 14. One car that sparks my interest though is this Veloster Turbo in the "matte" paint. I have seen one in person and thought it was nuts. I may test drive one also. Thanks for your comment. Made me feel more welcome.

    Quite the pedigree! I do appreciate Stangs, though I've not driven/had one. Do you have any idea what it is about the WRX you don't like? Finally, the Veloster Turbo seems like a cool car, it just didn't fit my needs as far as utility go. I almost wonder if it is more the Honda CRX of our time than the Honda CRZ is.

    Contacted local dealership and was told end of this year to early next year the new generation WRX will be out, I'm leaning more towards early next year. If you dont follow the auto shows, I suggest that you watch the NY auto show starting on the 28th. After debuting the XV Crosstrek hyrid subaru is debuting the performance concept which should be the WRX or STI. Subaru should be debuting the production model at the Tokyo show Nov 22nd to Dec 1st which would lineup with a early 2014 release of the car

    SUBARU | New York International Auto Show 2013

    Stayed tuned to this website for more info when the NY auto show starts

    I'm actually thinking the "Performance Concept" will be BRZ related. That's just me though.

    If it is really the WRX/STi concept at least we will have something real to talk about.

    Yea could be BRZ STI. But the US will never see that model. Japan and australia always get the sweet special editions. I thought i read something about BRZ STI wouldnt happen because they wouldnt want it to interfere with the STI sales. I dont think it would honestly just because a lot of people are so keen to the AWD drivetrain but it would be cool if subaru gave us a choice between RWD and AWD

    *Sigh*

    Every statement above is rumors and hearsay. I can understand making some fun wish lists for the new car, whatever it may end up being, but these threads are getting ridiculous. Nobody except Subaru knows what the new car will look like, what features it will have, how much it will cost, and where it will be sold. I've never seen so many people spun up about a budget car before. You'd think Subaru was announcing the cure for cancer in 2014...



    Oh and FYI, we aren't going to see AWD on a BRZ with extensive modifications to the chassis. Subaru's "symmetrical AWD" requires the engine to be placed entirely forward of the front wheels, causing a large front weight bias, and one of the key reasons WRXs are so famous for understeer. Since the BRZ has no front transaxle in the way, Subaru could mount the engine well backward of the front wheels, and much lower in the engine bay. This simultaneously improves weight distribution and lowers the center of gravity. Since this was one of selling points of the car in the first place, I seriously doubt Subaru will toss all that out the window just to add AWD, which would be of very limited use anyway on a BRZ.

    Every statement above isnt rumors or hearsay. google 2014 WRX and you will see plenty of articles about subaru debuting their performance model at the 2013 NY auto show.

    We are spun up because some people are more passionate about their cars, you are obviously not. Stop being a buzz kill and let people enjoy the lastest news that has come out. If you think we are beating a dead horse then dont read this forum thread. jeez lol

    I didnt suggest we would see an AWD BRZ. I was saying that if the BRZ STI and WRX STI came turbo'ed that people would have a chance to choose a RWD or AWD drivetrain with the same motor, It would be cool. I understand the science and enginerring behind the AWD drivetrain, again it was just conversation

    Ok fine, but you that's not at all what you said in your other post. Let me break it down for you:

    Yea could be BRZ STI. But the US will never see that model.
    How do you know this based on Subaru's announcement of a "performance concept"? While it certainly may be a BRZ STI, you have no proof on where such a model may or may not be sold, if it even exists at all.

    I thought i read something about BRZ STI wouldnt happen because they wouldnt want it to interfere with the STI sales.
    Again, where is this coming from? I guess the logic sort of makes sense, but it's still just rumors.

    Key distinction: I'm passionate about the WRX in my garage. It's a real car that can really be driven. This is not a real car yet. Sure, it's fun to dream about the future, but at the end of the day, my car will move me places and put a huge stupid grin on my face. This can't yet. Call me a buzzkill all you want, I'm far more interested (and excited about) in released facts announced by Subaru themselves, not what a bunch of car blogs think Subaru will do. What you posted isn't news. They are rumors that keep adding to all the confusion. I'll bet Subaru engineers are laughing their asses off at some of the "confirmed facts" floating around the internet. The fact is, nobody except Subaru knows yet what the car will be like. When they officially announce it in a press release, you can be sure I'll be very interested in it, but I can wait until then.

    I'm tired of all the "artist renditions" of what the car will look like, rumors about what engine will go where, etc. I'm ready for Subaru to officially announce the car and put all the rumors and speculation to bed once and for all (or at least until the next WRX comes out, when we'll repeat this whole cycle again...)

    Ok, my bad. I was confused by your wording and thought you meant an AWD BRZ. I see what you're getting at, and that would certainly be interesting.


    Look, don't take any of my comments personally, I'm just tired of hearing rumors passed off as facts, and I'm frustrated with the huge ball of confusion surrounding this car. At this point, I just want to see what Subaru has in store, and I really am looking forward to it.

    Not taking it personally

    I did not say it was definitely not BRZ related. since when has the US every received a Spec C or a type R, or S206. No we get a subaru with orange paint, orange stitching and decal on the side, that's our special edition lol

    2014 Subaru BRZ STI - Top Speed

    One downside to the BRZ STI is that there will be no turbocharged version offered. Subaru says there is no space for it in the engine bay and they are reserving these version for models like the WRX STI.


    glad your just as passionate about your car as I am.

    I get what your saying that there are lots of info flowing around, But there are some people who have fun trying to analyze what could this performance concept could be. You might not like an artists vision of what the next WRX STI could look like, you dont have to look at them but some people just like it. Exercise our imagination

    I'm with you there. Compared to the Subaru stuff I see here in Japan, they don't share anything good with the US, lol.

    That said, the S206 is a $70k car in Japan. Even if it was available to me, that would be tough price to swallow. I would gladly pick up the Legacy wagon tS though. 282bhp, 6-speed manual, full STI suspension, a swath of bespoke interior parts, and the same weight as my bugeye: STI - COMPLETE CARS

    I'm pretty sure the new WRX will look exactly like this. It was on Google.



    I wish I had started an archive about 10 years ago, of everyone's "sure thing" info about the next WRX/STI/whatever. It would make for some really entertaining reading.

    I'm passionate about my family, about hobbies in varying degrees as time goes on, and of course, about Trainrex. I don't know if I'd say that I'm passionate about needing to know what the next model Subaru is, any more. They'll unveil something, everyone will go "WOW!", and then 2 years later it will just be another old Subaru.

    Almost all the new cars & concepts have been leaked to the press. There are pics & drawings all over the internet. But no one knows what the Subaru sport concept is & what it will look like. Talk about secrecy.

    This was leaked yesterday

    Considering numerous companies now have built turbo kits that are quite impressive...yeah, turbo's don't fit.

    That new Caddy sure is handsome!

    Friday can't come soon enough lol. As I said before at least it will give us something real to talk about. Whether that be BRZ or WRX/STi news. That is giving a lot of confidence that Subaru actually shows off a cool concept this time!
