So, what car started the WRX?
Well, the car the original GC8 was based on is the first generation Legacy or as it's known in Australia the LIBERTY, Subaru developed many 4WD vehicles in early rally and racing national and international events, but the platform that would launch them on the WRC world stage came from the 1st Generation Legacy.
In Australia, the turbo model was given great upgrades, some of which are found on other models in different markets, and some features were somewhat new and unique to the Australian model, over time, we will post and discuss these here.
This legacy - pun intended, makes it a special breed, it has a passionate following, here in Australia and around the world, and it is a car that is well loved, and has stood the test of time, both in terms of design but also in reliability.
There are so many details we want to cover, but for now, take a look at Micheal Kynoch's awesome breakdown of the model's build stats and a breakdown of it's colours and options, here:
