Building The Beast We Never Saw Here

1999 Subaru Impreza Wagon

In the late ’90s, Subaru enthusiasts got a mere taste of the forbidden rally-inspired monsters sold elsewhere with the aggressively-styled Impreza 2.5RS. Sadly, it never had the turbocharged powertrain of the WRX or the even more potent STi.

When we did get the more powerful models, they were on the later chassis, which were heavier and not as attractive.

This enthusiast decided to take the “GC” chassis Impreza, and add basically everything from the same generation WRX STi, building a US-legal version. It looks stunning, and certainly should prove plenty of fun to drive. We love it.

It’s on eBay in Idaho for $12k or offer.
