Also.. i didn't see any WRXs roaming the world in the late 80's when the first AWD Turbo Eclipses were released....
I feel the need to point out that Subaru had AWD turbo cars before this.

Ok, Ok, Stock for Stock, will an SRT beat the WRX??? Is it true all this shit those guys are sayin about the factory options to have the car go above 300 hp?, and still be under warranty? I didnt think the Mopar options would be available till much later? or whatever......

I dont know anything about that car but it says 4WD. I always thought there was a difference in 4WD and AWD.

Yes, I know there are 4 wheels on a car so dont bother smartasses! I just thought there was a difference in the way they operated.

Not really, it's mostly just symantics with 4WD being used for trucks and AWD for car. Some people will say AWD is full time and 4WD is part time. Which is not always true, some people will say 4WDs have transfer cases. Regardless, Subaru had a full time 4WD one range drivetrain at that time which most people would consider AWD. I just snagged the first one I saw on ebay. Also the first car Subaru labeled AWD turbo (IIRC) was a '91 in the US.

Werd.....Uhh yeah the WRX wasn't the first Subaru with AWD/4WD nor was it the first turboed Subaru with AWD/4WD. Hell my dad had an 1987 GL with 4WD, granted it wasn't a turbo but I think you get the point.

I think I kind of lied, my parents both had 1987 Loyales. One was a 4WD slushbox sedan, I think it was a GL. My dad had a 4WD wagon with a stick but I think it was a DL. I don't remember exactly because I was only 4 at the time. :)
