Remember all that talk about Subaru dropping "WRX" from the Impreza lineup. It was true, only not on this side of the Pacific. Showing up on the North American Subaru Impreza Owners Club forum this week were shots of the Japanese Domestic Market version of the latest WRX, tagged with the new designation S-GT. As for the differences between the US-spec model and the JDM? We don't have the list yet, but you can go all pear shaped over the difference in the tach's redline: 6,500 rpm for the WRX and 7,500 for the S-GT. [Thanks to Dave for the tip.]
