Your Cars: Celebrating The Subaru Impreza WRX

If our request for reader submissions to celebrate the Impreza’s 30th anniversary this month has shown us one thing, it’s the sheer spread of WRX owners around the world, demonstrating just how truly global the model’s following is. Subaru owners are a devoted bunch.

As before, we’ve included all the submissions we could, but inevitably a few fell short of the requirements either due to image resolution, format or a lack of any information. Are there any other automotive anniversaries or notable dates that you’d like us to consider catering for with a similar readers rides post? Let us know in the comments below.

For now though, enjoy this selection of Impreza WRXs from Speedhunters readers all over the world…

Corey Stover's pic with the mountains in the back ground winner for me, plus the red on from New Zealand. Awesome post.


Wow! I didn't realize the WRX community had such a presence on Speed Hunters, these "Your Cars" are great!


It's really cool to see the owners come out to showcase their cars from around the world
Love the culture here!


Didn't get my submission submitted in time, but here's my STI anyways


Didn't get mine submitted in time, so here's my 2020 STI anyways :)


and it looks like it posted my comment twice and didnt attach the image, feel free to delete both of them


just barely caught the fall leaves for a backdrop before they all fell off


Here is probably the most unusual Subaru that is also technically not a Subaru. It’s being painted soon so it’s not pretty at the moment but here is my 2005 Saab 9-2x Aero. It is essentially a fancy 2005 WRX wagon


Fantastic cars, these posts are always cool


KE70's please!


my '04 WRX, got it cheap with terrible bodywork and an engine rebuild
