When does 2013 WRX arrive?

Hi all,

I'm interested in a fun local/daily driver to running errands and just cruising around town. I went to test drive 2012 WRX today as I read they're doing special lease offers until end of july - approx $300/month + tax for 36 months. Although it drove well and I was tempted(vs. getting 2011 Mini Cooper S) executive demo, I was reading that the 2013's are imminent - perhaps that's why they're clearing out 2012's.

Does anyone know for sure whether the 2013 will be better, or just speculating on the smaller engine and lighter weight?
I'd be very interested in everyone's input.

Thx.
Patrick

The Outback 2013 is coming out shortly...Saw some of the pics...I don't know about the WRX, but it is usually the last to come out...I have an Outback and a WRX, so I'm always looking around at both models.

Expect it to be late fall/winter and STIs come out late winter/early spring of 2013. Its about how it always boils out.

This is the first thing I've seen on the 2013 WRX that looks official: It's a press release from Subaru of Canada.

I've been rather interested because I've already put a deposit on the 2013 WRX with a local dealer. Sounds like 2013 will look a lot like 2012.

Which area dealer have you deposited with? I live in California and so far haven't even been able to order anything. Or am I mistaking depositing with a order? I have a fever, and it can only be cured with more cowbell. Or a wrx.

in early 2013 almost certainly the NEW WRX won't be ready for sale hence it will be exactly the 2012 model ...

but the NEW WRX (whenever it is announced) hopefully will be a world beater - hopefully everything new

I purchased (ordered) a 2013 WRX last week. The delaer said I would be driving it approx end of Sept. There are NO changes to the vehicle in comparison to the 2012. There is one color change, they did away with the obsidian black and replaced it with the black thats available on the legacy (black mica or something.. i cant recall)
The dealer told me they will be hitting the lots in late september. And they are orderable as we speak. I cant wait for mine, it will be my first subbie.
