Look no further than the hood scoops on the 2008 Subaru Impreza WRX STI and 2007 Ford Shelby GT to find the fundamental difference in their personalities. It's here that both cars' sense of purpose and ability is displayed prominently and publicly as a statement of their true character.

      Back when the STI dominated. But Subaru didn’t keep up as the mustang kept advancing with each new model

      Sti all the way. If you want a real American muscle car go with 1970 Chevelle SS. If you want a car that will handle through the corners and kick ass go with the STI.

      No you fucking don't, a Subaru doesn't produce enough hp or torque to move any other car. Especially not the one that your daddy bought for you on your 17th birthday.

      +thomas H too bad evo's we're so bad in build quality, nobody bought them, and they stopped making them, however the sti is still going strong. Funny you argue about them loosing power, my friends subie wrx 2004, has 204k miles and still runs perfectly, regular oil changes, only downside was he has to replace the clutch, he burned his out. Subies are much better built than mustangs too, ford makes cheap material cars

      Mustangs are inbreeding pigs of cars that are trying to stay popular by being loud and fake. The subaru has better acceleration, handling, practicality, the list goes on and on. Whereas the only things a mustang has is heritage and a slightly higher top speed, because it has a fucking massive V8 under the hood.

      Just shows it's not all about who has the biggest HP. Weight and set up are the key to an all round killer. The WRX also has years of WRC evolution in its technology. It wasn't that long ago the Mustangs still ran leaf springs.

      +Stealth Pyro Trap speed is what matters. A stage 2 WRX traps at 101-103 depending on the driver. A stock 5.0 traps at 110+, there's really no comparison. The STi should be compared to a base model V6 mustang, both are very similar in handling and performance.
