1994 WRX Impreza GC8
Pending Sale: $14,995
Subaru's WRX Impreza is a sporty, AWD, family hauler that can trace its roots back to the World Rally Championship. Equipped with a turbocharger and 3 pedals, you have an all-around capable sedan that is nothing less than fun! This 1994 WRX GC8 example comes with a measly 117k verified and documented miles and is finished in Subaru's beautiful Light Silver Metallic (406). The body is in great shape and lacks any major scuffs and blemishes to note. This 5 passenger all-wheel drive sedan can handle any inclement weather thrown at it. A set of new WRX wheels were added prior to landing here stateside, and the rest of the exterior remains in Subaru's original design with optional OEM side skirts and rear spats. The notable repair was done to the driver-side fender and was replaced with an OEM replacement fender. If you're looking for a fun daily commuter or a weekend mountain carver, this Impreza does it all!
The interior of this WRX sedan is wrapped in a light gray cloth with sporty red inserts that is soft to the touch. The front and rear seats lack any rips or stains and have been kept in great shape by the previous owner. The door cards are two-tone black with light gray inserts, and they are intact with no tears or sagging. The headliner is clean and tidy, and the carpets have stood the test of time lacking any stains and worn areas. This spacious GC8 can comfortably seat 5 occupants with plenty of leg and headroom to spare, making trips around town easy and comfortable. The driver benefits from the OEM Nardi steering wheel and shift knob which gives you a nice grip when maneuvering on the backroads. This rally-inspired sedan still rewards you with tons of power amenities. Aside from the power folding mirror option not retracting as it should, the electric windows, locks, and mirror adjustments function great. The GC8 offers pillarless doors, so you benefit from a coupe feeling when the windows are down. The OEM radio in this Impreza is functional only through the rear speakers, as the front speakers no longer function. The automatic climate control blows cold A/C on demand and is perfect for the warm summer days to come. Although the heater core is inoperable, we take that into consideration when we priced the vehicle for the next owner to benefit from.
The engine that drives this turbocharged sedan is the EJ20G hidden under the bonnet. The engine makes the infamous boxer growl and is enhanced via the Fujitsubo catback exhaust system. The acceleration is excellent and the turbo pulls like a freight train at full boost. Mated up to the EJ20 is a 5-speed manual transmission with 3 pedals to keep your calves in shape. The shifts are smooth with no grinding when you are switching gears, and the clutch engages great and is easily adaptable. Power is sent to all four corners allowing you full grip thanks to the new tires our trained technicians mounted and balanced. The stock suspension is forgiving and absorbs impacts over bumps and potholes with the assistance of new rear struts and rear top hats, keeping the passengers planted in their seats. A front strut tower bar was added to stiffen the suspension and reduce body roll through turns. The steering is light and easy for maneuvering in tight city streets. The well-known symmetrical all-wheel-drive system is what Subaru is known for, and performs flawlessly. Add a sporty turbo boxer engine and it's the perfect storm for any weather both on and off-road. A recent oil and filter service along with a new battery ensures trouble-free ownership until the next scheduled oil change. This well-rounded sedan doesn't disappoint whether you want to haul the family around for errands, a daily commuter, or a weekend warrior.
