If this is the case, Subaru had better do something big in Rally, but I think that's just lip service and they realize that Outbacks are more profitable than STI's, so it just doesn't make financial sense. I think they are missing the big picture though. Having an STI level vehicle in each vehicle line would bring down the cost of these vehicles if they use common components, racing brings prestige to a brand, and many of us that owned multiple WRXs and STIs in the past now drive responsible family cars (my family has an Outback in the stable still and we will probably always have at least one).
In other words, don't turn into Toyota. If we wanted Toyotas, we'd just go buy Toyotas.
