Subaru Teases Hotter WRX STI Model for Detroit—Is it the S209?

Subaru Teases Hotter WRX STI Model for Detroit—Is it the S209? It looks like Subaru is planning to debut a special STI model at the Detroit auto show in January. In a teaser video posted to Facebook, a camouflaged WRX STI variant can be seen hustling around Virginia International Raceway. The video ends with the caption, "From Japan with love," and in the description it reads, "Something special from Subaru Tecnica International is coming to America for the first time ever," followed by the date January 14 and the official Detroit auto show hashtag. Because the car is camouflaged, there isn't much to see other than its stanchioned rear wing.

Last month, Subaru began teasing a special-edition WRX STI that it planned to reveal at this year's Detroit auto show. We later learned the car would be called the S209, suggesting it would be the follow-up to last year's Japan-only S208. Now we have a better idea of what the S209 will look like thanks to a new teaser that Subaru posted on Instagram.

As you can see, the S209 still basically looks like a regular STI. Considering it's just a special edition, though, we didn't expect any wild styling changes. But beyond gray paint and a Type RA-like wing out back, the biggest difference you can see here is a wide-body kit. Unfortunately, adjusting brightness and contrast settings with Photoshop didn't reveal any other important details.

Subaru Confirms WRX STI S209 Will Debut in Detroit

Subaru Confirms WRX STI S209 Will Debut in Detroit Last week, Subaru teased a mystery WRX STI that was rumored to be the S209. Now, Subaru has confirmed the S209 will debut at the Detroit auto show in January. In a new teaser image, Subaru shows off the car's black grille. Not only does it have special badging, but a red accent line hints at its sporty intentions. The grille looks a lot like the one on the WRX STI S208, which debuted at last year's Tokyo Motor Show. Although Subaru hasn't announced details, it's likely the S209 is a limited-edition model like its predecessors.

Assuming the S209 follows the same formula as the S208 did, expect Subaru to keep production extremely limited. But since it will be offered in the U.S. , there's a chance we'll see a run of more than the 450 S208s Subaru built last year. It should also be more powerful than the regular 310-hp STI, although there's no telling how much more power the S209 will get. The S208 made 324 hp, which wasn't what we'd call a huge power increase.

Still, if it's lighter and more fun to drive on the track, the S209 could end up being popular with Subaru enthusiasts who wanted more from their STI than the Type RA provided. But since Subaru also announced a January 14 reveal, at least we know we only have to wait a week for more details.

Subaru unveils its first-ever S-series vehicle in the United States with the launch of the STI S209 at the Detroit Auto Show. The hardcore model packs an estimated 341 horsepower (not an official number yet) from a tuned version of Subie's EJ25 2.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder. If this sounds like something you want in your garage, then act immediately because the company is only bringing "around 200" of them into the United States. The S209 is not technically a Subaru model.
