It's definately not a Forester, much too low, wrong profile.

It probably is an impreza, possibly WRX. I'm sure if they are road testing a WRX, they would put it in standard Impreza bodywork to hide the fact that it is a WRX.

The 08 sti will be wagon only , no sedans. As for the horsepower, Even subaru won't know what that will be until they introduce the new evo. Subaru's goal is to have higher #'s than mitsubishi, so we will all have to wait until launch. The other thing is that the last batch of 07's will be allocated in May of this year , and we won't see the 08's until January of 08. That is the real deal info , as for the pic's, I was told that they are going more toward a civic look, whatever that means. Hope that helps.

I kinda like the new Civic SI look, its nice in terms of civics, but I don't think a Civic STI would look that great.

It would surprise me if the new STI was hatch only. The Impreza is starting to move more upscale, and hatch buyers generally don't look for upscale hatchs. I think by making a hatch they'll gain a few buyers who want a hatch, but they'll eliminate a larger group of buyers who prefer sedans.

Wow, how incredibly lame..

First they kill the coupe, then they kill the sedan. Can they make it any less of a sports car?

Does it come with standard 17" roof LCD and chrome wheels?

Its because most people these days want a fast car and have the room to pack the family and the dog for a long road trip. Im all for the STI hatch , in fact I may sell my 03 and get one.

I get my info from a very reliable source at subaru who is and has been involved with some of the new product development.
As for the dealer/salesperson comment. I guess I would just have to agree 99.9% of the time.
