Welcome to WRX.anastrophe.com.
A silly ode to my car, a 2002
Subaru Impreza WRX sedan. No significance, other than that it was the
first 'brand new' car I'd ever purchased (I was 41), and, it
is a very cool car. My previous car, for the past
thirteen years, was my trusty Subaru GL 4WD wagon. It had about
212,000 miles on it when I gave it to my brother in law about a year after
getting the WRX. It is still in service.
I ordered my WRX on 27mar01, the vehicle was built during apr01, and I
took delivery into my hot little hands on 12may01. Subaru is only
producing about 10,000 to 12,000 WRX's for the United States market
that first year.
A few of the specs for this 'stealth' performance car:
4 cylinder horizontally opposed engine ('boxer')
Dual overhead cam
Horsepower: 227 @ 6K RPM
Torque: 217 Ft-Lbs @ 4K RPM
All Wheel Drive:
Viscous coupling locking center diff
Viscous limited slip rear diff
Curb Weight: 3095lbs (13.6lbs per horsepower)
Following are a few pics, snapped the day after I got the car...
