2013 Subaru Impreza WRX Special Edition 1:27.4

2011 BMW M3 Coupe 1:27.7
2011 Ford Mustang GT 1:27.8
2013 Ford Focus ST 1:28.4
2013 Ford Mustang V-6 1:29.1
2013 Hyunda Genesis Coupe 1:29.1
2013 Ford Focus ST 1:29.3
2013 MazdaSpeed3 1:29.5
2013 Subaru BRZ (Long Termer) 1:30.3
2013 Subaru BRZ Limited 1:30.3
2013 Scion FR-S 1:31.2
2012 Volkswagen GTI DSG 1:31.5
2012 Mazda MX-5 Miata 1:31.9

I can only imagine the WRX's improvement with a proper alignment and stiffer shock dampening.
If you read the orignal article for the BMW and Mustang, they say willow raceway is 1.8 miles long. In the WRX test, it is 1.55 Miles. Maybe that's why.
