Impreza STI was a good sportcar, developing with proportional steps. But in 2006 the evolution stopped. And since then nothing spectacular has come to the market (except the Cosworth-tuned limited model). There is actually no difference to the 2005 model, but that in addition costs less. The 3 generation left nothing progressive, so I don't see the reason of purchasing the current Impreza STI. Subaru needs to present the new Impreza STI already, which would be really an impressive one as it used to be.
I love Subarus, especially Impreza WRX STI, I think it's an awesome car, of course it's going to have some understeer, it's all wheel drive, but if you're driving on loose or slippery surfaces, this is what you want.
One of the best sporst car today beceause of:
-second hand low price
-easy and a lot of tuning options
-unmatched traction on snow and dirt roads
-pretty useful 4 seater with big cargo space
-great AWD system
-might be little understeer, but it make it little bit safer
-interior quality, but who cares
-engine life isnt superb
@Georg and FastestLaps
Can I re-add some cars? I find many cars (these cars have laptimes, so they definetly have to stay in this site) without many fundamental datas or wrong datas and those datas haven't fixed. Would you mind if I re-add some of them with correct datas?
PS: The picture is wrong, it shows the 2003-2005 WRX STI with the 2 liters 265 PS engine. This picture shows the 2005-2007 STI: http://www.carsview.net/up/images/2006-subaru-impreza-wrx-sti-sa-1280x960.jpg
is it possible that the Bedford West laptime was driven by a more powerfull version? The laptime is pretty close to the 300lbs lighter and more powerfull Evo IX FQ 340 and much faster as the all new Evo X MR.
The link only claims Evo magazine.. anyone knows the link to the article reporting the laptime and car specs?
