Subaru may want to show its rear-wheel-drive capabilities with the new BRZ, but, fortunately, this doesn’t mean that, from now on you’ll have to turn to tuners for performance AWD Scoobys.
To confirm this, Subaru let it slip during the LA Auto Show that the next generation WRX and STI will not only be offered as stand-alone models, but will also send the power to all four wheels using a turbocharged version of the company’s new 2.0-liter FB flat four, as Car and Driver writes.

The company said that both vehicle should loose weight thanks to the new platform and that the new powerplant will deliver 300 hp under the bonnet of the STI.

Do you hear that Mitsubishi? Forget the hybridization of the Evo, this is how it’s done!
