    Total redesign,

    This is a rendering somebody made, but it is due and Subaru needs to do something to stay in the game.

    https://www.motor1.com/news/308694/2...sti-rendering/

    With the S206 STi variant released in the US with a power bump up to 340 it finally looks like Subaru is getting into the horsepower wars. I've read that they are expecting the next generation to have around 370hp with some sort of hybrid powertrain, plus I saw a quote somewhere that they plan to keep the manual transmission as an option.

    I wonder if they'll put in a motor that lasts longer than 50k km this time.

    Maybe it's best Subaru just skips directly to electric seeing they can't really build a good engine.

    Hybrid with the high rev brz engine?

    300hp and instant torque. I bet it would be wicked

    No way. Hybrid and turbos go hand in hand. Also huge for CAFE purposes.

    I call BS. Rumours in 2005 were that the STI was going to get 400hp. With the Evo gone, who is the STI really competing with? Focus RS? Gone. Golf R? A35/A45?

    I remember when the "new" WRX/Impreza was supposed to get a big makeover - I can't find an image of it at the moment but it looked amazing. Instead they released what we have currently and instead of a DCT (which would be amazing in those cars), they gave it a CVT of all things. Subaru is one of the most boring car companies out there right now IMO, and I have read enough about those turbo boxer engine issues to never want one. I'll believe it when I see it, but rumors of an exciting Subaru have been nothing but a tease for the last decade or so.

    I hope they do come out with a hybrid - turbo lag is very noticeable on the current WRX/STI and that could help a lot.

    I think finding an unmolested wrx/STI is as difficult as finding a bone stock Mustang. I would bet this is half the reason for having a bad rep.

    Man the last page of this thread has been really good.

    Must be the lack of people talking about the civic.
