In another bit of news that will make WRX fans in Japan happy, Subaru has just released the first details about the 2011 WRX STI tS. The tS is based on the WRX STI sedan, but this variant features a carbon fiber roof, an aluminum hood, a front lip spoiler, an STI-tuned suspension, and 18-inch alloy wheels. Inside, the interior is fitted with RECARO sport seats, a push-button ignition, and sill plates.
The tS draws its power from a twin-scroll turbocharged 2.0-liter Boxer engine that's capable to producing 304 horsepower. Compare this with the A-line tS which uses a single-scroll turbocharged 2.5-liter with 296 horses. Of course, the tS is connected to a six-speed manual transmission while the A-line is connected to a five-speed automatic. The special editions will go on sale in Japan starting next month, and will be priced from $48,000.
