1992 WRX Sedan
Subaru's introduction of the WRX in late 1992 was a game changer for sports car enthusiasts. The WRX namesake is even derived from motorsports and has the trophies and championships to back it up. The GC8 WRX started Subarus's now long lineage of performance cars. This 1992 Quick Silver (262) example has been left largely stock and is in great condition. With just 62K verified and documented miles over the course of its life in Japan, this GC8 performs as good as it looks! The paint shows great, with only minimal blemishes. Notable repairs include a new front right fender, but otherwise, the body is original. Both the paint and the body are in fantastic condition and largely free of any door dings or blemishes. The exterior also features the factory side skirts, rear spats, and even the stock wheels. This WRX is the perfect blank canvas to make your own, or equally good to keep in its original form to enjoy as is.
The interior on this WRX has stood the test of time and is as comfortable as it is beautiful. The black and red two tone seats look awesome contrasting off of the exterior Silver. The OEM seats are in great shape with no rips or tears, even the typical bolster wear is nowhere to be found. The driver's seat bottom does have some minor wrinkling of the fabric, and there is a hard to notice hole in the passenger seat fabric near the e-brake smaller than the size of a dime to note. The dash and door panels are also in excellent condition with no cracks, rips, or major UV damage. Even the optional Nardi steering wheel and shift knob are in great shape with just minor wear on both, which is a bit surprising since they're such high wear items. An upgraded functional Kenwood headunit is a welcome addition to the interior and includes an auxiliary input for tunes. While these were built with rally intentions, that doesn't mean you'd have to do without the basic creature comforts. Power windows, tilt wheel, and automatic climate control with cold A/C make it a great daily driver regardless of where you live.
The heartbeat of the GC8 is the four-cylinder, turbocharged, EJ20G. The potent two-liter starts right up and has a nice, smooth idle with Subarus unmistakable rumble. Power is delivered smoothly throughout the RPM range and rows briskly through the gears. The 5-speed transmission shifts smoothly and the clutch feels solid when transferring power to the AWD drivetrain. A viscous coupling type center differential and viscous limited-slip rear differential were standard features from the factory and part of what made this car such a legend both on and offroad. While in our shop our technicians performed a fresh oil and filter change, and also installed a brand new battery. Four brand new tires ensure that you'll be ready to tackle whatever the road throws at you as well. The suspension design makes this an awesome car to drive and feels much more nimble than the later turbocharged models that the U.S. received. With its iconic looks, unstoppable drivetrain, and huge availability of parts for the GC8 there's no wonder why these have reached such a legendary status.
