If Cherry Blossom Red makes you go all wobbly in the knees, and you've been on the fence about buying a new Subaru, then zip over to your local dealership and hope you got there in time to buy two of the rarest production Scoobys to hit our shores.

When Subaru announced the WRX STI Type RA and the BRZ tS earlier this year, people went a little nuts, and it's easy to understand why given that the Japanese manufacturer only plans to build 500 examples of each.

The WRX STI Type RA is a lot like a regular STI, but one that stole its little brother's ADD meds and drinks only energy drinks of questionable legality.

The folks at STI took the standard car and went about lightweighting it, tuning the suspension within an inch of its life, and making changes inside the venerable EJ25 motor such as fitting it with stronger pistons and tweaking the ECU.

Then they went crazy with STI pink (sorry, Cherry Blossom Red) on the badges and trim pieces, and the result is the rawest STI that America has ever seen and an MSRP of a little over $50,000 after destination.

The BRZ tS -- tS standing for "tuned by STI" -- is a little less zany than its all-wheel-drive sibling.

Subaru is releasing new versions of the WRX STI and BRZ, which initially got enthusiasts salivating.

The 2018 Subaru BRZ tS and WRX STI Typa RA are limited editions, with production runs of 500 units each.

While they do feature some performance tweaks from Subaru’s STI (Subaru Tecnica International) division, they don’t represent a huge leap from their respective base models.

That may disappoint fans, who were particularly hoping for a more powerful “BRZ STI,” along the lines of 2015’s STI Performance Concept.

Still, these two new Subies shouldn’t be dismissed.

The “RA” in “WRX STI Type RA” stands for “Record Attempt.” Subaru has made plenty of those over the years, including one that yielded the fastest time for a car over the Isle of Man TT course.

Subaru is bringing a hotter version of its WRX STI to the 2019 Detroit Auto Show.

The automaker released a teaser video titled “From Japan with Love” that shows a camouflaged WRX STI lapping Virginia International Raceway.

Subaru subsequently confirmed that the car will be the S209, the latest in a series of special editions previously sold only in Japan.

The video description promises that “something special from Subaru Tecnica International is coming to America for the first time ever.” Subaru Tecnica International (STI) is the automaker’s performance division.

STI builds sportier versions of regular Subaru models — most of which don’t typically make it to the U.S.

Case in point are the S20(X) versions of the WRX STI.

We definitely knew this was coming.

First, Subaru applied to trademark "S209" in the US.

Then the company released a teaser video of a hotter WRX STI sedan testing, saying we'll see the production version at the 2019 Detroit Auto Show in January.

Now, the cat's officially out of the bag: Subaru confirms its Detroit-bound STI is, in fact, a limited-edition S209.

But we still have a couple of questions.

For starters, what'll be under the hood?

Subaru plans to reveal two new concepts in Japan next month, with the Impreza STI and the Forester STI headed to the Tokyo Auto Salon 2019.

The two concept cars will take two fairly mainstream cars – a hatchback and a crossover – and give them a sporting makeover, though that doesn’t mean there’s all good news.

The Impreza STI Concept is a frustrating reminder to Subaru fans that there’s still no speedy hatchback in the automaker’s range in the US.

There’s still no shortage of appetite for a fast five-door, rather than the current WRX and WRX STI sedans American drivers get, but Subaru shows no sign of delivering it.

This Impreza STI Concept, though, imagines something along those lines.

It starts out with the regular Impreza hatchback which is available in the US, but throws on some extras.

Subaru's new STI S209 is an absolute hoot.

But I'd be lying if I said driving a prototype of this upcoming, limited-edition sedan was the highlight of my recent trip to Japan.

STI -- Subaru Tecnica International -- celebrated its 30th anniversary last year.

Iarlier this month, it threw a belated birthday party at the base of Mt.

Subaru owners and enthusiasts from across Japan flocked to Fuji Speedway to celebrate all things STI, and the automaker even used the occasion to introduce its 2019 WRX STI race car that'll compete in this year's Nurburgring 24-hour race.

WRX sedans and hatchbacks made up the majority of the cars on display, of course, but I couldn't help but fawn over not-for-US models such as the Levorg wagon, or the coveted Legacy STI S204 that never graced US soil.

Good thing is the first S-model to be offered in the U.S., the S209 is the most powerful, best-handling, and most exciting vehicle STI has ever created.

From the intake through the turbocharged SUBARU BOXER® engine to the drivetrain and down to the exhaust, STI engineers retuned the SubaruWRX STI into something new, with 341 horsepower and a 0 to 60 mph time of less than 5 seconds.

Book your STIS209 at any Subaru dealership near you.

The STI S209 is the latest incarnation of the S-Series, which goes back almost two decades to the S201.

Each new S-model has pushed the limit set by its predecessor and each could be considered a study of everything STI engineers knew about motorsports and vehicle development engineering at the time.

Along with an uprated fuel pump, injectors, and a remapped engine control unit.

The importer in charge of bringing Subarus into the United Kingdom has decided this year will be the last year it imports the WRX STI, and it's rolled out a new special edition to bid it farewell.

IM Group, the company responsible for distributing Subaru's vehicles in the UK, has unveiled the WRX STI Swansong Final Edition, which will be limited to 150 units.

"With the launches of new models, and investment in platform and powertrains going forward, the timing has felt right to open a new chapter for Subaru and allow WRX STI's heritage to inform future developments rather than being continued," the group wrote in a statement.

It's important to note that the STI has no plans of going anywhere in its other major markets, including the US.

This decision was entirely up to IM Group, which will undoubtedly strike a chord of sadness in fans of the road-going rally car.

The WRX STI Swansong Final Edition claims to be the most capable UK STI to date.

p Every car STI touches turns into a sharp, driver-focused machine built with racing DNA.

Subaru’s American division is preparing to release a hotter version of the BRZ tuned by STI, its in-house performance division.

Fans will need to contain their excitement, because the model isn’t scheduled to make its full debut until June 8.

A teaser image published on the Japanese company’s official Twitter account reveals the BRZ STI receives a massive wing made out of carbon fiber … and it leaves the rest to the imagination.

It’s not too far-fetched to speculate the body kit also includes a model-specific bumpers on both ends and side skirts.

The BRZ STI Performance concept shown at the 2015 edition of the New York Auto Show previewed one way Subaru could give its only two-door model a muscular, race-inspired look.

A hefty majority of Subaru WRX STI special editions never make it to the US, but a new teaser video sure does make it seem like that's about to change.

Subaru published a new YouTube video Thursday, and the description reads: "Something special from Subaru Tecnica International is coming to America for the first time ever," and it ends with the date of the 2019 Detroit Auto Show.

The video itself features a Subaru STI -- specifically, one with modifications similar to the Type RA we drove earlier this year -- whipping around a track.

While that teaser would ordinarily have us crafting all sorts of wild theories, there's a good chance we kind of know what it is already.

Reports circulated this week that Subaru recently applied to trademark "S209" in the US.

Last year, Subaru debuted the STI S208, a hopped-up STI that was only available via lottery, itself a follow-up to 2015's STI S207.

Subaru s sportiest offering stays old school, with just enough refinement to make it worthwhile.

When Subaru debuted the all-new WRX STI back in early 2014, there was a lot to be excited about – a significantly stiffer structure, a new, more aggressively tuned suspension system, and a revamped interior to go along with the thoroughly rethought exterior.

With the imminent demise of the STI s biggest rival, the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution, the future looked especially bright for Subaru s top-spec performance sedan.

But in just a few short years, the automotive landscape has changed rather dramatically, and the STI now finds worthy competition in the Volkswagen Golf R and the Ford Focus RS, the latter of which is just starting to make its way into U.S. showrooms this summer.

The blind-spot warning system and a backup camera from the STI Limited are also included as standard here in the Series.HyperBlue model.

Smurf jokes aside, the hue suits the STI s silhouette quite well, finding the sought-after line between striking and gaudy and holding fast to the preferable side of the equation.

The new 341-horsepower 2019 Subaru WRX STI S209 debuted at the Detroit Auto Show flanked by a couple of cars from STI's past.

And on the other was a 1998 Impreza 22B STI, which arguably is the most noteworthy production STI model built to date.

Subaru produced the 22B in 1998 to commemorate the 40th anniversary of Subaru and celebrate the company's third consecutive World Rally Championship constructor's title.

Compared to the 2.0-liter engines found in other Imprezas from the period, the 22B's engine not only got a bump in displacement, but a closed deck, upgraded heads, forged pistons and increased boost.

Output punched in at 280 horsepower and 267 pound-feet of torque and worked with a five-speed manual gearbox with an improved dual-plate clutch and driveshafts.

Visually, the 22B's color scheme mimics the iconic 555 livery found on the WRC rally cars with a WR Blue paint job, gold BBS wheels and red STI logo.
