Wikipedia Article Excerpt:
The Subaru Impreza WRX is a turbocharged version of the Subaru Impreza, an all-wheel drive automobile. It is available as a sedan or wagon.
Originally introduced in 1992 in Japan, then shortly afterward in New Zealand, Australia and Europe, the WRX had a turbocharged flat-4 2.0L (then later a 2.5L), Subaru Boxer engine. Compared to the base Impreza, the WRX has a turbo-charged drivetrain, wider low-profile tires, larger brakes, and firmer, higher-quality suspension components.
The Impreza WRX was first sold in North America in 2001 as a 2002 model year.
There have been seven noted versions of the WRX. The STI versions were marketed with consecutive numbers. Another way to determine the version of a WRX was to look at the chassis code. All WRX sold between 1992 and 2000 have the beginning chassis code of GC8 sedan or GF8 wagon; this is followed by a letter from A to G.
