2008 Subaru Impreza S-GT & 15S JDM Versions Scooped

We don’t know if this will make European and American Scooby fans feel a little bit better or not, but from the looks of it, the JDM (Japan Domestic Market) version of the 2008 Impreza WRX will loose the “WRX” nameplate in favour of the uninspiring and meaningless “S-GT”. As you can see from the images that where posted on NASIOC, apart from the 7.500 rpm redline (US WRX: 6.500 rpm) and the 180km/h tachometer, there’s no other visible difference between the US spec WRX and the JDM S-GT. -Continued: “Click Read…” more below

S-GT aside, we also get a few images (below) of an Impreza wearing an “15S” name-tag. Again, there’s no official information but we’ll agree with the guys at NASIOC that what we’re seeing here is probably the base version of the 2008 Impreza fitted with Subaru’s new 1.5-liter boxer engine. In its Euro outfit, the later produces 105 Hp at 6.400 rpm and 14,5 kgm of torque at 3.200 rpm. Via: Nasioc
