About Subaru

One of the leading auto manufacturers in Japan, Subaru has a well earned reputation for creating some of the most recognizable and reliable vehicles on the planet. Subaru offers vehicles that range from compact, economy cars to high performance vehicles. The unique “boxer engine” layout and all-wheel drive train has distinguished Subaru vehicles for several decades. For most drivers, Subaru autos are associated with mid-size, economy models of exceptional design. The name “Subaru” is Japanese for the Pleiades star cluster which is featured in the Subaru logo.

The origins of Subaru begin in the aircraft industry when FHI began as the Aircraft Research Laboratory in 1915. Reorganized as Nakajima Aircraft Company in the 1930s, their factories rolled out a variety of planes until the end of World War 2. After the war, the company was divided into smaller corporations and began focusing on different types of manufacturing. By the mid-1950s, the CEO of Fuji Heavy Industries created a car manufacturing company and christened it “Subaru”. Their first vehicle was the Subaru 1500 released in 1954. Every since, Subaru has created an impressive line of vehicles that range from the 1000 series, which was the first to feature the boxer engine in 1965 to the Leone in 1971, the BRAT in 1978 and up to the present day with the STi, WRX, Impreza and BRZ models. From sedans to wagons to rally cars with pin stripe designs and more, Subaru has manufactured all types of vehicles.

Subaru Impact of Carbon Fiber Technology

Of the many innovations that Subaru has incorporated over the years, Subaru Carbon Fiber Accessories and Parts technology has allowed their vehicles to become lighter and more performance oriented. Carbon fiber auto parts are twice as strong as steel, yet weight less than 1/4th the amount for the same size part. The twill weave technology also makes carbon fiber more impact resistant as well. Subaru is hightly focused on their sports car and a rally icon Subaru Impreza STi, which comes in Hatchback wagon and 4 door sedan. The Subaru STi has been in production for 3 generation, starting from 1992. In 2000 to 2007, the Impreza WRX and STi used the GD and GG frmae, that used the 2.0-Liter EJ20 engine and the 2.5-Liter EJ25 engine. Turbocharged versions were used on WRX and STi models, which used the 2.0 and 2.5- liter engines. Third generation Subaru Impreza WRX STi was the GE, GH, GR and GV frames were intoruced in 2008, with 2.0-Liter EJ20 and 2.5EJ25 engines. There are numerous automotive and aftermarket parts crafted from carbon fiber which include the following; Air Scoop Duct, Air Intake Box Scoop, Eye Lids & Eyebrows, Mirror Covers Shells, Interior Dash Panel, Interior Door Panel, Door Pillar Panels, Trunk Spoiler, Rear Spoiler, Rear Wing, Engine Bay Cover, Rear Bumper Diffuser, and the custom parts continue. The power, performance and style of the Subaru line have been enhanced by the inclusion of carbon fiber parts. For a company whose origins are founded in creating aircraft during World War One, Subaru now enjoys its status as one of the most recognizable names in the automotive industry.

Subaru WRX STi

Originally introduced in 1992, the Subaru Impreza compact car was initially designed to be a replacement for the Leone line of vehicles. Today, the Impreza has developed through four generations offering a wide number of options over the years.

While the first generation was highly successful, the second and third generations have built and expanded upon that success, featuring a wide variety of vehicle types from the coupe, sedan, convertible and other variations that have proven to be quite popular with the public. Featuring a four to six cylinder engine options, durable, functional interior packages and the classic exterior of a Subaru, the WRX and STi versions have advanced considerably over the next three generations.

Difference between the Impreza, WRX and STi Versions

In terms of physical differences, there is basically none in terms of the Impreza and the WRX. This is because the “WRX” abbreviation was adopted for the third generation of Impreza models, so the difference lies only in the designation, not in the vehicles themselves. However, the STi version of the standard WRX differs in having a wider body, aluminum suspension and greater electronic modifications.

Over the past decade, carbon fiber or CF auto parts have become quite popular for many vehicles including the Subaru WRX STi.
