If they were in the production stage then yes. They are still in the R&D / test mule phase though last time I checked. Haven't seen any photos/spy shots since that black & white painted mule boi.

Yeah the WRX will be the first one to be revealed and then go into production. The spy shots we saw was the WRX. After that I’m sure we’ll see the STI mule and then reveal and then production. STIs probably won’t be going into production until sometime in 2022 arriving as MY23 sometime in the spring or summer of 22. That would be by guesstimate timeframes.

They brought the valves back in 2018 for the Type RA.

Ah, got it, thanks for pointing that out. I remember that was touted for the s209; forgot about the Type RA.

Just the short block. The exhaust valve part numbers are different. Only the Type RA and S209 have the sodium filled exhaust valves in north america.

Been hearing from a friend that works high up for a major trucking company (logistics and fleets)that it's crunching everything. There's a big moat around the product because of how much these companies have invested in the microchip manufacturing facilities and supply chain...the demand is just off the charts.

On one hand it means that there's likely going to be some delays. On the other, it's a great investing opportunity in companies that make these chips. Insane demand and no supply. NXP, TSMC, ect

I work in marine logistics, you should take a look at a website named marinetraffic.com, basically tracks most ships in the ocean, take a look at LA and Long Beach, it’s the biggest congestion probably ever. There’s like 30+ ships waiting to dock. It’s been like this for a couple of months now. This is all due to Covid-19 rise in e-commerce which has raised demand for goods as well as the breakdown of supply chains due to covid. It’s also due to our inefficient ports because of longshoremen’s unions that continue to block time and time again automation. Truckers are also facing chassis shortage so they can’t even pick up containers.

Anyway, don’t mean to bore with this stuff, just some context into supply chain and the current issues from 2020 and which we’ll be facing in 2021 and which will affect goods trade. Although for automobiles the come in RoRo vessels and usually dock in different ports/terminals than container ships.

It's OT, but, just as I thought back then, the actual S209, engine and tune, we got here is *significantly* slower than the S209 "proto" tested by C&D 2 years ago:
- C&D in January 2019:
https://www.caranddriver.com/reviews...totype-driven/
Quote:
[...]after only a handful of laps we were running about five seconds quicker than the Type RA we lapped last year and just a tenth or two behind our ATS-V's time.
- C&D, 2 years later today:
https://www.caranddriver.com/feature...lightning-lap/
Quote:
[...]It's also the quickest one, but not by as much as Subaru hoped.
The company target for the S209 was the Cadillac ATS-V's 2:59.8 time. We tried, strapping into the S209 more than any other car on our final day of lapping.
While we couldn't match the Caddy's time, the S209 did finish 1.5 seconds ahead of the 2018 WRX STI Type RA.[...]
On the front straight, the 341-hp S209 underperformed, winding up fourth slowest overall despite our most violent, no-lift upshifts and tapping the steering-wheel paddles to spritz the intercooler with water.[...]

that may result in a short 21cy for the wrx if the all new wrx arrives this fall and the rumors of the slight STI delay are correct

"slight" STI delay? That leaked timeline put it pretty much a year off. With the pandemic, will THAT hold true? OR does it get delayed?

I agree with that except for one wrinkle, that same leaked timeline said we were supposed to see the new brz in the spring. instead, it got revealed last year and supposedly coming out this fall

Correct. Because that leak was from a pic in a pre-pandemic world and now we have a pandemic that has delayed things.

The leaked timeline didn't take COVID into account, otherwise BRZ most surely would've come out this spring.

The WRX would've been released early summer, I think. But now I'm thinking fall too or maybe even winter. Or January/February 2022 as a 2023 model. Who knows.

The longer they delay, the stronger the CVT.

I see them using the new cvt from the ascent but with some adjustments and a different cvt cooler. the new wrx won't be as heavy as the ascent, legacy, or outback but it needs to be able to handle hard launching from a stop. but the extra time due to covid could mean more development time to make some adjustments and changes. I still can't see a cvt on the STI, but we don't know if they will even bother to put an automatic on the STI
