    Pull the Trigger on a '13, or wait until the '14 production year?

    I know there is only speculation about the '14 WRX, and some "spy" photos. So, I guess the question i would like to ask you guys would be directed at people who bought a WRX the year before a major production change, 2010, 2007, etc. I was wondering if you had any regrets not waiting for the next production year.

    Also, i know there is no information out there on when the '14s would be in dealerships, but two dealerships have told me they expect to be receiving them in early 2013 (February). Which doesn't make sense to me. That's one short '13 production year, and I don't know why they would just make that up since I was more or less ready to by the car after test driving. But maybe they weren't too worried about selling the car.

    Any way, I would appreciate any advice, regrets, general feelings on the subject.

    Thanks in advance

    Since you are asking, you don't need a car. Therefore, don't buy a car. The more you wait the longer you keep your money.

    I was in the same boat basically. But I went with a 2013 model.

    For how long it took for them to release the 13s, which is basically a 12 with a new ecu as far as I can tell. For them to hold on to this platform for so long and keep it hushed, I really dont think February is very likely. Maybe November of 13, or even early 2014.

    One main factor in grabbing a 13 was I love how the models look currently. What if the 14s are horrible looking in your opinion. Also, its going to be a new platform supposedly. That is kinda scary. I think when cars go into a new platform, like the wrx may do, there will be bugs I assume. I like to go with a tried and true platform.

    No chance in hell for Feb 2013. If it is a new design, it will be a big unveiling at one of the major auto shows, the first of which is in Jan 2013 and production will be months later.

    I thought about waiting, but I have a problem with waiting, I won't again buy a first year redesign and who knows what the heck will be next? Rumor has it that it could be a 9 door quad turbo three wheeler with 900 hp and 250mpg.

    If it as bad-assed as people think, I will trade in and trade up, but I suspect my 2013 will keep me plenty entertained for a while.

    You could wait until 2014, and hate it. Thank god I bought my 05. I think the 06 Imprezza's looked like complete crap. I bought a 2013, as I am scared to wait and may not even come close to liking it.

    first world problems..

    wait and save, more time to research the 13 and see what factory upgrades you like, any problems or recalls with it. see how the 14 looks when it comes out and if you dont like it you can find a brand new 13 with everything you want on it.

    You and I differ greatly. Lack of 2 door is my biggest gripe with the WRX line up.

    Firstly,

    Second, the WRX/STi will purportedly receive a Turbocharged 2.0L FA20 motor. If you think you'll miss the extra 0.5L, think again. The Direct Injection should allow for more compression and the longer stroke will allow for a considerable bump in a off-boost performance. Take the 2L motor from the new Ford Focus ST: with a tune, the car puts down ~335wtq @ only 2500rpm. That's similar to the 2.5L WRX!
