Within the wake of the information that Subaru is killing the WRX STI going ahead, it seems that the STI is already useless on the corporate’s U.S. and Canadian shopper Websites.
It does appear that one can use the construct and worth instrument to cost out a 2021 STI, however in any other case, the automobile has been seemingly memory-holed.
I’ve reached out to Subaru to see if there’s a deeper that means to be gleaned right here — is all STI stock bought out, or is that this only a pure adjustment to the truth that the STI received’t exist in 2022? I’ve not but heard again. UPDATE: Subaru replied with a remark that addresses the dearth of the STI for 2022 however doesn’t get into specifics in regards to the automobile’s disappearance from shopper websites: “Sure, we lately introduced that there might be no 22 STI. In reality, there might be no STI primarily based on the brand new WRX platform as we glance to the way forward for the product. We’re taking a look at electrification for the following technology. No timeline as of but.”
It’s, after all, commonplace for a automobile that’s not being carried over to vanish from shopper websites. It simply appears to be taking place awfully quickly after the demise of the STI was introduced, and it’s additionally a bit complicated that the B and P instrument remains to be up however the automobile is in any other case not proven.
Sluggish information heading into the weekend, I do know. However mildly fascinating, nonetheless.
