I am sure that there are no current WRX models that have a two door configuration however a person on another site that I belong to claims to have spotted a blue 2-door WRX in FL. I know hes wrong, but what could he possibly have seen or is there a coupe version of the RS that could have been badged WRX?

If you have anwers great. If you got some pics, even better. Thanks.

Well, the name "WRX" has always stayed with the 4-door, even with the previous generation Imprezas. The 2-doors have been the RS's, although I'm not sure if they are still called RS's overseas.

"Ricer" or "Riceboy" but not "Rice-***"...

Im pretty sure that the WRX model only comes in 4drs. WRX is based on the Rally WRX WRC. WRC regulates that all cars be 4drs, 2.0L and Turbocharged. This is why you wont find any 2dr WRX's....

I don't think the 4 doors thing is accurate...both the Peugeot 206 and Ford Focus RS rally cars are two-door...

Impreza turbo WRX not available in 2door for previous gen? Some of you don't seem to have followed Suby before the North American release of the WRX.
As for a previous gen WRX in US or Canada, it is very possible that a RS->WRX conversion was done. Here in Quebec, there are quite a few rally shops offering such conversions for RS owners, particularly those wanting to rally.

Thank you all for being so helpful. If the person who said that they have heaps of pics of the old 2-door model could post one or two would love to see it.
