Mine is the same. It's because STI is a trim level of the WRX.I got an email from Subaru with a VON and when I should expect my car to come.But it says I ordered an wrx even thou I ordered an STI.anyone order an sti got an email from Subaru saying that ordered a wrx or does it say STI?
Ahh okay thank you,mine is apparently last week of August.Mine is the same. It's because STI is a trim level of the WRX.
What is your estimated delivery date?
They simply haven't had to IN crease the horsepower a lot to sell STI's, because there are hardly any other cars in its price range that can accelerate 0-60 in 4.6 seconds, run the 1/4 in 13.10's at 105 Mph and top 160 MPH and do that in an all wheel drive compact sedan platform with exceptional handling braking and safety, the EVO was/is the car in the price range that had everything the STI did in the price range.I do find it odd though they dont do anything power wise as generations of this platform go on. Look at GTR started at 480 and now the current one i have comes with 600. my first mod will be dropping the motor.
To be fair, the one in 2009 cost $75,000. The one you have is literally twice the price.I do find it odd though they dont do anything power wise as generations of this platform go on. Look at GTR started at 480 and now the current one i have comes with 600. my first mod will be dropping the motor.
The GTR is an amazing car, no doubt about it, but.....To be fair, the one in 2009 cost $75,000. The one you have is literally twice the price.
Event the base model now runs $110,000. The price has increased by ~40% over the past decade.
STI price hasn't really moved since it came to the US. I would totally welcome more power, so long as the rest of the chassis handles it properly. That means the price will go up. 35-40k is fine.
If it starts wandering towards 50k though, that's an issue.
GTR is definitely a cool car. My Dad has a 2015, and we have a few family friends with them as well, some of which compete in Nissan Challenge and GTA. They're quick, but they're expensive... especially when you start talking about taking them to the track. They're just a different class of car, so naturally that comes with a different class of price tags.The GTR is an amazing car, no doubt about it, but.....
Wow I had no idea they went up that much in price, but it does indicate they had to do a lot to the car since it made its debut here, because cars that it directly competes with, over the past 5 years have been getting amazing performance numbers for less cost, the STI doesn't really have a direct competitor that costs less that can outperform it's acceleration and total package performance, and that's what I was trying to get at. The Hellcat and Demon are the beginning of the next level of what is coming from domestic performance cars, by 2020 there will probably be a few pony cars available with 1000 horsepower from the factory and 700+ horsepower will be more common than it is now.....they are expensive as well as exclusive though. If they start adding electric motors to the wheels of these monsters to supplement the high horsepower gas engines it's going to be nuts..1000+ horsepower factory supplied muscle cars
That fart on shift noise that they make, I kinda like them.
A base 2018 STI is still about 10-14g's less. That AMG is also not full time all wheel drive, and an STI modded to that same power would run a lot faster than high 12's...heck a 3" downpipe and tune would more than make up for the gap in e.t's to that 375 horse AMG. But it just confirms what I was saying....you need to open your wallet and spend 5G's or more to find something that can beat the STI, $ for $, there is nothing in the price range that gets you what the STI does in total package, the AMG is a prime example of a car that costs a good deal more to get similar set up, but not quite the same heavy duty drivetrain with mechanical full time all wheel drive diffs, the EVO was the only other car that was real competition. that's the point
I had a chance to drive one on track along side the TTS and BMW M2 during its launch. One of my perks for working for BMW.
M2 slurp slurp slurpI had a chance to drive one on track along side the TTS and BMW M2 during its launch. One of my perks for working for BMW.
The AMG was ok. Seats and steering wheel were nice. Ride was decent and it made cool noises. Lots of low end grunt too. From a driving dynamics perspective, I didn't really care for it. I thought the Audi TT was much better and the M2 was better than both by a landslide.
None of them were bad cars. They just all do different things really well and other things not quite as well.
You guys are insane lol...the cla45 starts at 50,875,(2017) and exceeds 60,000 with options.....try and stay on topic please, I know it's hard ....but my point was that the STI's closest competitor is/was the EVO and that there aren't any other cars close to the Evo and the STI relative to how they are engineered in their price range, and the performance numbers they put down that would have caused subaru to have a reason to increase the horsepower.
No no.....a couple of us were talking about the validity of subaru not increasing the horsepower of the STI because in its price range there arent any direct competitors with 4 doors turbo 4 and full time all wheel drive that hit 60 in 4.6 seconds, quarter mile in 13.10's at 105 and top 160 MPH and brake and handle as well, A G A I N...in the price range of $35,000.There's no point in going back and forth with you. You have the largest-tiny hard-on for the STi that you can't see past it.
It's a pretty valid comparison when you consider how much money is thrown into these cars immediately. It's pretty common to see 2015+ STi's with built motors in them. Additionally, considering what most people use these cars for, there are options out there that compare and are much nicer. LOLROFLLMAO... blah, blah.
