Subaru is rumored to be working on a brand new hot stamp as the Japanese brand sees the return to the World Rally Championship after 10 years off the series.
The rumors are swirling in Japan, while the local Response report says a "scoop" that Subaru is trying to tackle the fall of its awareness in Europe by returning to the main stage of the races in 2020.
To do this, however, wheels would have to be entered and this would mean a new Toyota Yaris GRM hot hatch that could be turned into a rally car.
The website highlights the brand's Concept Performance Subaru Viziv, which was unveiled at the Tokyo Motor Show in 2017, as an inspiration for a new Fiesta ST that competes with hot boats. This car, however, was actually larger than the WRX (4630mm long, 1950mm wide and 1430mm high).
There was a lot of encouragement for Subaru, once a force in the concentration, to return to the WRC. Toyota chief Toyio Akio Toyoda, according to information, urges the Japanese manufacturer to return to the race privately, while Japanese websites say that Subaru's bosses consider returning to rally as soon as possible to bring the brand back to the European map.
A pretty big warning, though; this is just whispers and rumors at this point, so there are no guarantees. But we can hope, right?
