Subaru teased us a week ago

with the possibility that the

STI S209

might come to America, and now the automaker has confirmed its debut at the

Detroit Auto Show

this January. Check out the S209 grille badge in the teaser photo above. The red trim around the edge is a nice accent to go along with the “S.”

Unfortunately, we don’t have any further details on the new variant right now, so we’ll have to wait a few more weeks to see what the STI folks have been up to. We hope the S209 will offer even more performance than the

limited-edition Type RA

. In the past, S20(X) series models packed more power, upgraded suspension and improved aero compared to the standard



In the U.S., the current car’s EJ25 turbo flat-four engine has been making roughly the same amount of power for a


time now, but in Japan, the S208 from last year made do with a newer 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder making more power than our 2.5-liter. It’s hard to believe that Subaru will try and certify a new engine for U.S. use, so a further refined STI engine is probably coming our way.

We’ll find out what Subaru has in store for us on January 14 in Detroit. Until then, feel free to speculate to your heart’s content.
