Subaru does not produce a factory “charged” Impreza WRX STI, but the sedan of different generations periodically turns into racing cars for classic rallies and circuit racing. But in 2024, the iconic model will be transformed into a crazy project called Project Midnight, which is currently being actively developed by the American division of the brand together with the Subaru Motorsports USA racing team. There is no information other than a few teasers.

The images show an all-black body with a Subaru emblem in the side and a huge rear wing. The massive fender flares are similar to the rally sedan that competes in the American Rally Association championship, but the front bumper is different from the version already shown.

In addition to the new bumper, there are carbon fiber trims around the air intakes and dual canard flaps that distinguish it from previous WRX rally cars. The rear diffuser is also made of carbon fiber, which helps reduce weight.

The exposed slicks suggest that this car is designed to deliver maximum performance on asphalt rather than dirt. Project Midnight will make its debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, where American racer Scott Speed, a former Formula 1, Formula E and NASCAR driver and four-time US rallycross champion, will be at the wheel of the new car.
