From www.subaru.net (a great site by one of the most knowledgeable Subie salesmen in the country):


Story text for the lazy:

Subaru Impreza WRX STi likely on the way to U.S. soon

Europe gets its hot Subaru Impreza WRX STi (for Subaru Technica International) in January, but U.S. customers lusting after the high(er)-performance model needn’t despair. We’re told the beefed-up STi will come to the States in 2003 as a 2004 model, most likely with all the hardware available in the European model.

That makes it a sizeable step up from the rally-bred all-wheel-drive WRX already on sale here. The STi employs a redesigned flat four generating up to 261 horsepower and 253 lb-ft of torque (compared to 227 hp and 217 lb-ft for the current WRX). The heavily modified, turbocharged engine with active valve control even employs a switch that sprays the enlarged intercooler with water.

The car is fitted with 225/45 tires on gold-spoked, 17-inch alloy wheels, stiffer suspension and front and rear limited-slip differentials, a six-speed gearbox and Brembo brakes. Interior upgrades include blue “suede-effect” seats.

Two STis debuted at the Frankfurt show: a standard STi and a special-edition Prodrive Style modified by the British race-engineering company responsible for Subaru’s world rally cars. The Prodrive Style comes with a huge rear spoiler, a deeper front bumper and a bigger hood scoop, all to make it look more like the competition car.
