@Dezoris does some decent auto journalism.

You're right about dezoris. I could do without some of the sarcasm but that's just me.

Would Road & Track be considered doing good auto journalism or would this be classified as click bait?

Well, My opinion is that the printed mag is respectable. And that this article would not make the cut and be left on the editor's floor. But, now they print this stuff online... So, yes and yes.

Not click bait, not good auto journalism either. The internet is a series of tubes, jammed to bursting with bullshit and circular references. At some point, Autocar will post an article with the news of the new 86 linking to Autocar as the source, and nobody will notice, especially the author.

I'd wager it will be probably be using a variation of this engine, which means there might not be a manual.

If you believe this source (http://response.jp/article/2016/08/16/280170.html) - word has it that Subaru will be going with 1.5L turbo+hybrid engine, and the STI model will be part of the line-up as well. Debut is anticipated to be October 2019 at the Tokyo Show as a MY 2020 model.

This^. The printed magazines have limited space but a longer timeline to publish so they take far more time in confirming the source and vetting the story. There sites however are in the race to be the first to break "news" so it is a quick look and get it posted. It is sort of sad to see the old school big name publisher fall to clickbait levels but they are sort of forced into it if they want to stay in business.

Yep that looks reliable (even though I can't read it). A few lines of text and about 100 ads and unrelated links.

Autocar is just the UK version of every automotive news source in Australian. None of them ever provide anything worthwhile or credible. Quit reading their stuff.

Very rarely will an automotive news source break something before a manufacturer wants them to. Spy shots, leaked pics, and insider info are 99% contrived by the OEs.

I heard Subaru wants to make it AWD so they can share more parts across platforms and save costs.
