Here's something I was wondering if people considered:




When Edumunds.com finally reported the news that the WRX was here, one thing they mentioned after talking with Subaru officials is that "Subaru will slowly dole out more horsepower over the years" or words to that effect.




So, has anyone considered that the MY03 WRX might have say 235hp and 222lb/ft of torque? Other car companies do tiny increments like this all the time from one model year to the next.

I've totally made these numbers up but the implications are the same. Maybe Subaru will release a slightly faster WRX next year, and say "Well, we're $5k cheaper than the lancer and only 10HP behind, there's no need for the STi yet." Horsepower sells cars! Most people, even enthusiasts, won't place as much importance on brakes and all that.

Any thoughts? Have I been smoking crack again?
