Japanese Sports Cars, Part 6: Subaru Impreza WRX

The WRX, Subaru’s most famous moniker, is to the Japanese automaker what the 250 GTO was to Ferrari. There is no way and no reason to compare either of the two cars or the companies.However, without the WRX, Subaru would have remained relatively unknown outside of Japan without any motorsport titles to its name, devoid of public respect, and deprived of a great car, though not great in the Ferrari sense of the word, but in a Subaru context.
