Battery Upgrade

I'm looking at getting an Optima RedTop for my '11 WRX but I'm not sure what the part number is because the Optima website only goes up to '09. Does anyone know what the part number is or if the 09 battery will fit in the '11 battery housing? Thanks!

Why? Did your battery already die or are you doing it to "upgrade" because it's pointless.

Not hating just don't want to see somebody waste money on a battery in a brand new car.

I was looking at the red top because I wanted to do some audio upgrades that are going to draw some serious power and don't want to put too much strain on the alternator and the stock battery.
