Subaru Impreza WRX Uses a Second, Chopped WRX as a Trailer

One of the pillars on which the Subaru Impreza, be it the WRX or the STI, has built its reputation is the practicality. However, it seems that certain people can't have enough of it. And when this happens, we end up with contraptions such as the one in the image above.
Sure, the first impression is cool, but you can't help but ask yourself about the weight distribution issues that can appear with such a trailer. The fact that the axle is so far back within the structure is obviously the concern here.

Then there's the overall weight of the trailer. Sure, that boxer engine under the hood of the WRX isn't shy when it comes to torque, while its clutch is used to being abused, but it seems like we're dealing with pressure at a whole new level here.

Nevertheless, the owner has probably done his own calculation. And yes, the equations involved might include drawing attention as
one of the most important valuables. Or perhaps the guy who drive this had an Impreza whose engine or front section had been destroyed.

The pic which showed up on Reddit, could always be a fine Photoshop job, but it does look real, so we wouldn't worry too much about this. In fact, this is not the first project of this kind we see - over the years, the internet has given us another two or three such creations.

Speaking of details, one thing we can't enjoy in this picture is what we expect to be a delicious aural experience. The boxer engine in the WRX must have a sweet sound in the "serious load" mode seen here.
