Subaru Remembers Greatness: the 2004 WRX STI

Rally

The street-legal rally-inspired car that made Subaru truly bad ass.

In 2004, Subaru finally brought its WRX STI to the US market to the joy of many. The rally-inspired car had already been on sale in other markets like Japan and Australia, but the US had to make do with the WRX beforehand. Fortunately, the WRX STI proved to be a massive hit stateside and defied sales expectations. Subaru knew there wasn’t anything quite like the STI in terms of its power output and handling abilities within its price point.

With 300 horsepower on tap, the original STI was also a performance bargain. Along with its signature wheels and large rear wing, the it has become a legend. And now that we’re only a few weeks away from the reveal of the next-gen STI, Subaru has just released this video looking back at the first WRX STI to storm the US.
