2013 New York Auto Show: Studs and Duds
Stud: Subaru WRX Concept
It’s common practice these days for automakers to slap the “concept” moniker on cars we know full well to be nearly production-ready. That’s the case with the Subaru WRX Concept. Despite the dramatic headlights, tiny mirrors, and lack of things like door handles, this is pretty close to what we’ll see when the production version of the Subaru WRX goes into production in the next year or so. The WRX is a rally-inspired, turbocharged, all-wheel-drive high-performance version of the Subaru Impreza. It’s also a significant vehicle for the company. The WRX has a cult following–our own Jason Davis owns one–and this next WRX has some pretty big shoes to fill. Of course, this is still a concept, so we don’t know particulars like horsepower or how much it’ll cost. But we’re guessing that the lines at Subaru dealerships are going to be pretty long.
