For example Car and Driver Lightning lap ran 3:01.5 at VIR in the 1LE and 3:13.8 in the 2015 STI. The 1LE was within 1 second of the GT500 with over 200hp advantage and the STI is over 12 seconds off.

In that case I do stand to be corrected lol. As mentioned I never driven a 1le, only my sti and my 2013 ss. There is no comparing the sti to either an ss or 1le in straight line speed I do know. As for handling the sti destroys the ss which is where I was comparing it to the 1le (yes I know the 1le is night and day difference than the ss handling wise) but it is not awd. I love both cars but to me they are not in the same category.

TThat is subjective. I am sure you will find others that will think the polar opposite. I think both look damn nice.

As I said earlier in the thread the STi is better on quick transitioning turns. Any course with substantial straight lengths and the camaro's pure muscle will make up any slight cornering time loss.

However this is sort of apples and oranges as the STi really hails from a hertitage in the dirt, while the camaro from drag strip and road courses.

title should be. Legendary V8 Performance Car vs. Crackerjack Rallycar Fad

the Camaro has been a benchmark of cool since 1967, the WRX has been a 16 year old ken block wannabe's wet dream since 2002. you decide.

He is not interested in a wrx, he inquired on an sti. Put a camaro on a rally coarse bud and see how well it performs against an sti? Better yet drive your ss in sub zero iced over roads then an sti and you ask about that decesion of yours.

They are DIFFERENT cars in different categories. Both are tons of fun in thier own way, I'm very fortunate to have both and would not sell either one for the other.

Also don't listen to ppl like this..
On another note don't really care much for the hatch (impreza) the WRX STI looks much better IMO

Everyone has an opinion, rather you like to hear it or not. STI is a well performing car in its own way, but I agree with what he said.

No sir two complete different animals in the same body. The sti has a slightly larger engine, larger turbo, totally different suspension, the si drive, brembo brakes, 6 speed manual transmission vs 5 speed manual on the wrx, and a few minor exterior differences. They are nothing like a ta vs ws6.

I did not take offense to anything stated but only pointed out that the op was asking about a camaro ss vs an sti. He never asked who thought they looked good, or what age should drive them.

I tell you what, like them or not they hold their value better than the ss and have a larger market for them. Lets leave our opinions out
