If RallyFighter were AWD, you might have a point.

But it is RWD, custom-built out of parts from many other cars, not covered by any warrantee, and too much off-roader for too much money. It is a race truck covered by a coupe body.

It is cool as hell, but it isn't exactly a prime candidate for daily driver for most people. If I wanted something like that, I would get a Raptor with a fastback-like bed cap, and pay barely more than half of Rally Fighter's price, and it is in stock locally at a dealer that can support it, with a warranty.

If MINI can sell Paceman, and Land Rover can sell Evoque 3-door, then there is demand in a new market segment for even more options, with more performance than either of those two transverse-engine Turbo I4s have.

I wish it would come from Subaru... but if it comes from Audi, or BMW, or some other brand... I'll consider it.

Otherwise, I'll likely end up with something that I can make due with.

I am sure you love the prospect of going through life, and approaching your hobby and personal interest topic with the attitude that you can "make due," and not really ever get what you'd really like to have and use. I am sure that is just an endless font of satisfaction for you.
