‘Sharper’ 2024 Subaru WRX TR Teased—And We Have Questions
Posted on September 27, 2023
You know, it’s strange that the Subaru WRX hasn’t been in the wider enthusiast conversation much. With all the glory going to the Honda Civic Type R, Hyundai Elantra N, Toyota GR Corolla, and Subaru BRZ, it always felt like the new, softer VB-generation WRX never hit the mark. Subaru now has an opportunity to fix that with the upcoming 2024 Subaru WRX TR.
Details are scarce at the moment, as Subaru plans to pull the cover off the TR at Subiefest in Florida on Oct. 7. The only hint we have so far is the teaser image of huge and very red Brembo brakes behind a new set of wheels—and of course the name TR. TR in Subaru speak used to mean Tuner Ready and was only offered for two model years, 2006 and 2007, on the GD-generation Hawkeye WRX. Back then, it was a baser-than-base model that offered basic essentials and was cheaper than a standard WRX. It didn’t make a return on the GR-generation WRX that debuted in 2008, and was dormant until now.
