Rotary Powered GC Impreza AWD

By Ben Schaffer

With all of this talk lately of Louis Vuitton interiors, 24K gold parts, etc this post serves as a reminder that this is not a fashion blog. To file under "WTF," here is a four door GC Impreza with perhaps the most unlikely engine swap, a rotary from a FD3S RX-7. AWD is kept with this new engine, making it an extremely odd car. This car didn’t make any sense to me four years ago when I shot it and it still makes no sense now. Perhaps that was the point the owner had in mind.

to be different. everyone’s always copying things. why can’t someone say hey.. to hell with that! im building my own style. or maybe he’s just more accustomed to a rotary engine, therefore slapping one on his car.

i still think an LS1 swap into any japanese car is considered more of a WTF notion, just as everyone was like ‘WHY WOULD YOU PUT AN RB20-DET INTO A MUSTANG?!”
although…fast and the furious is by far the WORST reference…but none the less, a rotary sounds a little better than an LS…oh well…wonder how they like it
