    2011 WRX 0-60 Time

    I have read 4.7 seconds in some places. Is this accurate? This is faster than most Porsche 911's and some Aston Martins.

    I think Car and Driver had it at 4.5, it's accurate but your clutch will hate you

    Car and Driver have it listed at 4.7 2011 WRX review

    As far as faster than 911's a Base 911 does 0-60 in 4.1. Gets in the S models and 4s and they are in the 3's. get into turbo's and the GT3 turbo is 2.9

    Most Austin Martins aren't builts for speed, even so they are still 0-60 in low 4's.

    Our WRX's aren't in this category. We own a solid car that stock is super quick! the New Camaro only shows .1 faster in 0-60 and has about 130hp more. Remember they test with Pro's so it would be different per driver on the track.

    I'm sure your average driver wouldn't be able to get a 4.7 0-60. The best way to do that would be launching, and that's like suicide for your trans.....

    Now give me someone else's car and ask if I can get a 4.7 0-60...I'd be more willing to try

    It's been popular to use the quarter mile and 0-60 times to prop up the WRX for many years...AWD gives a nice bump at the beginning of an actual drag strip run, but in real world, already moving situations, a stock WRX accelerates about like a V6 Altima.

    I agree, he asked for 0-60 so I didn't elaborate on it anymore. 3rd gear pulls at lower rom are like a standard v6, so I just downshift to higher rpm 2nd gear... problem solved

    ... of course, those V6 Altima's are pretty quick!

    I'm new to the forum, and just bought my '11 WRX today; traded in an '04 RX8 for it (0-60 time: 5.7s), and the WRX is DEFINATELY faster... I surprised myself today when I actually made my own head jerk as I shifted into 2nd! LMAO... wasn't expecting the amount of power (or the torque)!

    Yeah, thinking about it now, I probably should take a little bit easier during the break-in period... I had to have been over 5500-6000 RPM when I shifted! I was surprised at just how quickly I got there too! Definately have to tone it down for next 1000miles or so... unless I want to be back in the dealership in the next week or two! :-/ I got to used to shifting at 6000+rpm in the 8

    Ha ha. My buddy has a 93 RX7 and man that thing likes to rev. Riding around in it I'm like...SHIFT!

    For sure - Take it easy for the first few thousand miles. If you want the car to last make sure you don't beat it...ever. Once you're past the break-in, drive it hard, but still don't beat it. Be smart about it and drive it right.

    Also it's very important, especially on turbocharged cars, to keep it under 3,000-3,5000 and out of boost until the engine reaches full operating temp.

    Just a couple nuggets of wisdom

    BTW - Congrats on the new car!

    Well sure, they're just as fast as Aston Martins and Porsche 911's!

    Oh wait, no they're not.

    right around 5 flat 0-60 is average for the average joe wrx driver.. without launching or sidestepping the clutch.
