Like 200lbs lighter than M4? It will need much more then 350whp to compete, but it will not happen nevertheless. Subaru, like Honda, is now "earth dreams" company dedicated to more sales in any single day

The only advantage is subaru keeps its old good things like hydraulic steering and 200lbs lighter.
I love these japanese cars with outdated engine because of touge: more steering feedback, short 2nd and 3rd gear, stock suspension designed to run uneven back roads.
The car itself still stands for 35k price tag. Ironically, 1999 STI (22b) accelerates faster than 2017 STI. Same engine, almost same power but 22B is only 2900lbs with 4.1sec 0-60mph time.
