Subaru adds 2 STI models for ’18

Subaru of America will add two limited-run variants under its STI performance line for 2018.

And it was the run out of De Villiers, one of the [...]

Minutes before Madré Johnston and her husband Tony burnt to death outside their home in Elandskraal near Knysna, she sent a final text message to her neighbours saying that she could see a “glow” approaching. Madré was eight months pregnant. That afternoon, they would have celebrated their son Michael’s third birthday. “Morning,” she greeted her neighbour Anton du Plessis by WhatsApp. “We can see a red glow approaching from Uschi’s side, this morning. Looks as if the fire is burning. It’s still too dark to see the full extent. Will let you know as soon as we can see.” Uschi Schultz was one of the couple’s neighbours. Du Plessis said that about 20 minutes later, at about 06:35, the [...]
