Subaru JDM (Japanese Domestic Market/Model) Cars
Japanese Domestic Market (JDM) Subaru is a Japanese-brand cars built specifically for the Japanese market (designed and constructed to conform to Japanese vehicle and equipment regulations and to suit Japanese market preferences). JDM Cars migrate to other markets through ordinary import and the grey market (grey Market).
Subaru JDM vehicles differ in features and equipment from cars sold elsewhere. Cars built to JDM specifications have stiffer suspensions and improved throttle response over vehicles built for different markets.
In the late 1980s, Subaru created the Subaru Tecnica International (STI) division to coordinate development for the FIA World Rally Championship and other motorsports activities. After the company had grown, the division was used to create high-performance consumer versions of the Subaru Impreza WRX, an all-wheel drive car with a turbocharged flat-4 engine, leading to the development of the Impreza WRX STi. The Subaru World Rally Team has used a race-prepared version of the WRX STI as its rally platform since the model trim's creation. JDM Subaru Impreza WRX STi was originally sold only in Japan. Only in 2001, Europe received the STi with the change of the GDB chassis. After seeing the Impreza WRX sell at much better levels than expected, Subaru began selling the Subaru STI in North America in the spring of 2003 as a 2004 model.
STI also tuned Forester XT STi.
