The new Subaru WRX unveiled at the Los Angeles Auto Show back in November is already rumored to have its more potent trim package to make an appearance at the Detroit Auto Show. Motoring reports that the WRX STi will be on display in the motor city in January, sporting 300 horses and about 290lbs of torque.

Now both models have split from their original name plate, the now lackluster Impreza, and should be powered by the flat-four found in the current Subaru Forester. Turbocharged, the base WRX should be looking at around 265 Horsepower. The STI should expect the typical improvements over aerodynamics, larger brakes, and the already mentioned increase in power, though it is five less than the current STI.

Electronic controlled steering is also rumored, along with the option of a Continuously Variable Transmission, offered for the first time. Surprisingly, the CVT will get less gas mileage than the standard six speed manual. The Six speed should get around 21 city/28 Highway, and a combined 24 miles per gallon. The CVT should expect 19/25/21 mpg.
