Post Turbo rumor...

Leatha, the hottie down at Subaru Schaumburg, told me the other night when I asked about the WRX that Subaru would be shipping 1) the turbo in the current body style this spring, and in the new body style for my03. and 2) more importantly to some of us.... a 2.5l forrester turbo! This most likely means we can bolt on a factory turbo, swap the ECU and be done with it! Looks like good news.
3) Im still missing my lug nut

This rumor runs counter to all official news we have heard thus far. Did you lose the lug nut before or after meeting Leatha?

And while a turbo forrester sounds cool, why would anyone buy this when they could have a WRX 5-door instead?

Well... it is a rumor. Dont know how good the info the dealer get is. As far as a turbo forrester... Well there is a group that'd rather have the SUV look, and a bigger car. According to her, they added the turbo to the 2.5l for the forrester due to its greater weight. So Maybe it'll happen, maybe not. But if a 2.5l turbo shows up, the switch to the current 2.5l RS shouldnt be hard.

hmm i dunno, first i think that if the turbo impreza comes it here it aint gonna happen that late (if MY01's start rollin around now, 2003 seems VERY far away). i also think itd make more sense for SOA to put the new H6 into the forester as opposed to a turbo 2.5.. despite how many wagonfans there are on the board, i just dont think such a vehicle would make it with American buyers (yeah, especially if there was a turbo impreza wagon at ~2900lbs and a larger H6 outback available)
