2008 Subaru Impreza WRX

2008 Subaru Impreza WRX
Spy photographer Chris Doane for Brenda Priddy & Company caught a disguised 2008 Subaru WRX in testing this week in California. Previously, there have been several sightings of possible WRX test mules (in Legacy bodies). These pictures show an actual WRX prototype. The car is expected to take some inspiration from the Subaru B5 concept, though evidently not as much as one might expect. As for power, insiders are anticipating a big update to the 2.5-liter H4 turbo, with an output of around 330-horsepower. Priddy says the Impreza name could change for the 2008 model year.

well, what it competes with now.

They pretty much entered the sport compact war already when they decided to bring over the WRX in the first place. A WRX already whomps all of those cars and is almost as cheap (cheaper than the GTI).

Redline & Cobalt should be right around the same in speed barring the occasional AWD 13.9-14.0 1/4 for the WRX.

At least it doesn't appear to have the 06-07 Vaginamouth. It's a Subaru though, they'll think of some inventive way to make it look like crap.

SWEET! So far the rumors still hold some truth. I remember reading about it a couple years ago. I was excited cuz it'd compete with the Peugot 206s (before they started using the 307s) and Ford Focus rally cars. It seems like the hatchback design typically do better than the coupes/saloons.
