I did not know that the (Toyota) Scion FR-S and the Subaru WRX are the same car.
WTF and why so scoff-law?

Isn't the Scion rear wheel drive vs the WRX all wheel drive?

I don't believe you can get an Impreza to speed

A WRX is an Impreza with a factory performance package. Since the WRX modders are going to upgrade everything, maybe some of them just start with the base Impreza package and save a few bucks?

Maybe the Impreza guys buy the factory WRX parts that the WRX modders replaced, and mod their Impreza into a "factory" WRX?


However it breaks down, a WRX is technically an Impreza, and WRXs are hell on wheels.

They aren't the same, Jim, but both are uh... performance oriented, and the people who value those attributes tend to be in a hurry.

The sti package made 304 hp in 2009. They've backed it off a bit now.

I obviously don't know squat about these vehicles.
So little that I was surprised by just the fact there is overlap:

"Also called" on the right.

A Subaru BRZ is not a WRX.

The ones with the hate certainly know the right way, the ones who tag to piss somebody off, anybody off, not so much.

I spotted this frieze on a building in Thermopolis WY on my last visit to the US.
I think that they're keeping their options open.
