My basic sense after a couple of laps in Prodrive’s WRX is that this automotive feels as near a new-generation STI as I might think about. It retains all the outdated STI’s rhythms completely intact: Stiff however not too stiff, highly effective however not unhinged, higher seats for elevated help and, in fact, an enormous wing. You have gotta have a wing.
Prodrive has no quick plans to promote this would-be STI as a manufacturing automotive, however the firm is open to the thought of providing an entire improve package, or particular person equipment. As for Subaru, nicely, it is nonetheless sticking to that assertion from 2022. “As we glance to the longer term, we additionally stay up for incorporating the essence of STI into our subsequent technology of automobiles.” Fingers crossed that one thing – something, even when it is electrical – involves fruition.
