Subaru WRX STI Type RA & BRZ tS at NAIAS 2018

    Both of these performance versions of Subaru’s two performance models are no secret, but it was still fun to see them up close at the 2018 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS). The 2018 WRX STI Type RA and the 2018 BRZ tS are the crown jewels of Subaru’s modern stable. Both are faster, lighter, and better handling than their base model counterparts, and both have a cool red stripe to help you tell the difference. Here are some fast facts!

    I am a sarcastic, honest, fanatical car guy who tells it like it is. I have a passion for how things work and no patience for stupidity. My dream car is a Koenigsegg Agera R because the engineering behind it is superb.
