2000 Subaru Impreza Rs Coupe 2-door 2.5l on 2040-cars
San Bernardino, California, United States
|BEAUTIFUL 2000 Impreza RS Coupe! This car has been my pride and joy for almost a decade. I've taken extraordinarily good care of it and maintained it meticulously. It's gotten new synthetic oil (Royal Purple or occasionally Castrol Syntec) and a new Subaru factory filter every 3000 miles. I just had the timing belt and water pump changed. It has a new transmission, new clutch, fork, pressure plate and flywheel, new AC compressor, new cruise control unit, new radiator and thermostats, new air filter, spark plugs, spark plug wires and a new battery. I upgraded the front seats with (more comfortable, more stylish) ones from a WRX. I also put in an in-dash CD changer from a WRX. This car has never been raced or abused.
The body is in great shape for a car that's 14 years old, and has only fairly minor issues here and there. The front bumper has the usual tiny chips from garbage on the freeway. The rear bumper has a scrape on the left rear corner from where some wanker brushing it with his car. There are a few chips on the right side rear bumper and a few other miscellaneous dings here and there. The biggest issue with the body is that the clearcoat is blotchy on the spoiler. The paint is great, but the clearcoat needs to be re-applied. Overall, this thing is GORGEOUS! Please note that it needs new tires.

The Sydney Morning Herald has spoken to Tetsuya Tada, chief engineer of the Toyota 86 (our version of it, the Scion FR-S, is pictured above), and they've been promised that more power is on the way. We've heard a lot of speculation about a more powerful Toyobaru since before the standard model was even launched. The only question now is how the power will be delivered, and among the engine concepts we've already heard about - turbo, supercharger, twin-charged, hybrid - is a new one: more displacement.

Tada said that an engine with more displacement than the current coupe's 2.0 liters is being tested alongside a turbocharged and a hybrid-assisted motor. The SMH cites "inside sources" as saying the displacement option is the one likely to get the go-ahead, and suggests increased bore and stroke will see the engine grow to 2.5 liters, horsepower to about 250 - a 50-hp increase over the present car.
While that's apparently the betting man's solution for the long-awaited increase in gumption, what happens with the next generation could be more wide open than we suspected. According to the report, Tada "hinted that [a successor] could be a radically different car, potentially dropping the boxer engine altogether." He said once they've sorted out the concept for the second generation car, then they'll sort out an engine. That's where a turbo option could come to market, perhaps the turbocharged four-cylinder Toyota is developing for the Lexus NX crossover or a hybrid system that uses a capacitor.
The 2015 Subaru WRX is awesome. Really awesome. We told you as much in our first drive of the new sedan back in December. Honestly, our only complaint about Fuji Heavy's new performance machine is that it's no longer offered as a hatchback - the new WRX is a sedan-only affair, despite the more functional five-door variant accounting for some 50 percent of sales in the car's last generation.

But there's hope on the horizon, if a report from Australia's Motoring.com is to be believed. Speaking with Masuo Takatsu, Subaru's general manager for the WRX, the company is now re-considering putting the "hatch" back in its hot hatch.
"We have received strong interest from the US, where the hatchback was 50 percent (of previous-generation WRX sales), so we're now considering," Takatsu told Motoring, noting that the United States is Subaru's main target for this car. Additionally, Takatsu said the company's decision to only offer the sedan was the result of limited engineering resources, echoing statements we've previously heard from Subaru's US arm.
It was 1998 when Subaru made some crucial changes to its World Rally Championship Impreza, such as increasing the displacement of the turbocharged flat-four-cylinder engine from 2.0 to 2.2 liters and fitting wide fender flares. Subaru won the WRC manufacturer championship with the car that year, and it also was the year of the automaker's 40th anniversary. To celebrate the milestone, the company came out with this limited-edition, road-going Impreza, the hallowed 22B STI, which looked nearly identical to the rally car.
Only 424 22Bs were built, and most of them stayed in Japan. But Dominick Infante, national manager of product communications at Subaru of America, was able to secure a drive in one of the only two 22Bs in the US. He details the car's history and some of the design and engineering cues that made the Impreza STI so popular both in motorsport and on the street, but we were caught up listening to the exhaust and admiring the timeless blue-and-gold paint. You should too, so head below to watch the video.
