Default Does Subaru plan on releasing competition for the EVO RS???

Hey...Just curious if anyone knows if Subaru is planning to compete with the EVO RS. Will they release a lightened, more raw version like Mitsu did or anything like that?

RS is the weaker version of the VIII..kinda, it just has less part, kinda like the STi Spec RA...or was it spec C where they know that you're going to mod the car so it doesn't come with nice rims and all that stuff. I thikn Subaru should beef up the WRX to compete with the RS..have the s203 Spec C's to compete with the MR, and regular STi vs VII, that would be great. But they will probably come out with someone cheaper than the STi but more expensive than the WRX, and have it badged as an STi Spec something.

If you want something like that, than import a WRP10 (World Rally Pirelli 10) from Australia. Power is enhanced to 240HP and there are a few other changes. Its in the August issue of SubieSport.

between the 2 cars, Subaru is setting the pace in the USDM anyway. The Evo MR was created to out do the STi in performance marketing. I dont see subaru creating a new trim line to compete with an inferior trim line. Why would you waste the resources to compete. The WRX is (in my eyes) the competion for the RS. Mitsu needed something to sell to those who dont want to spend 30k on a compact car.

There was a rumor that Subaru was bringing out a stripped down version of the WRX to "compete" with the EVO RS. The RS has NO different power mods. They just did away with "useless" things, such as A/C, wing, and I think power windows. Most of those parts are not installed on regular RS, are optional (Urban Jungle or something like that). The RS is more directed towards competition use, ironically autox, seeing as how Mitsu doesn't like you doing that stuff.
