Subaru of America, Inc. President and COO Tom Doll had plenty to share during the company's press conference at the North American International Auto Show on Tuesday (1/14/14). He had three times more good news than Subaru fans were expecting -- in three reveals.
First Subaru reveal: Subaru had prepared us to tune in and watch its presentation of the new WRX STI. After a recap of legendary STI product of the past, the silver 2015 WRX STI sedan emerged from the smoke and lights to the crowd's delight. Read more here.
Second reveal: What we weren't expecting was the WRC Blue and gold-wheeled Launch Edition that was driven out of door number 2. Find more information here.
Third reveal: Then, nonchalantly, Doll quietly announced that "the prodigal son has returned to Subaru" -- popular driver and four-time Rally America National Champion Travis Pastrana is returning to Subaru Motorsports during the 2014 season. He'll enter rally and X Games events with the team. Catch up with Pastrana here.
