While it is agreed that Subaru certainly doesn’t build high-end luxury sport cars, as the WSJ’s Auto Cheat Sheet correctly states, their vehicles are definitely engineered with performance in mind. It is the unique combination of off-road capabilities and track-worthy speed that sets Subaru apart from the competition.
In compiling their list of the 15 all-time fastest Subaru models, WSJ relied on the 0 to 60 acceleration of each model. As a safety measure, Subaru electronically limits the top speeds of their vehicles, so using the acceleration rate was the best available way to assess the fastest vehicles.
Here is the list of the 15 fastest Subaru models published on the WSJ Auto Cheat Sheet:
WR1 – The limited run rally car clocked from 0 to 60 in just 4.3 seconds.
WRX STI S206 – Only available in Japan, it was timed to 60 mph in 4.5 seconds.
Impreza 22B STI – Raced from 0 to 60 in 4.7 seconds.
