Still to be based on the Impreza

In production for the past six years, the current-generation Subaru WRX STI will reportedly be replaced next year, with the next-generation production model debuting at the Los Angeles Auto Show in November before it goes on sale \"in early 2014.\"

It was rumored before that the next-generation WRX STI will be utilizing a totally different platform than that of the standard Impreza. According to Automotive News, however, that won\'t happen, and instead--as has been the tradition since the first-generation model was produced in 1994--the WRX STI will still be based on the Impreza but \"restyled for a sportier look.\"

In addition, unlike the current-generation WRX STI, which is available either as a four-door sedan or as a five-door hatchback, the next-generation model will only be available as a sedan.

Let\'s hope that even if the next-generation WRX STI will still be based on the Impreza, Subaru will find a way to make it look like the WRX sedan concept it revealed at the New York Auto Show in March.
