Maybe this will shut Unclemat up. STI Legacy OUTBACK, it exists and has a much better likelyhood of crossing the Pacific than the LSTI wagon.

BabelFish Translation:
Anybody my posting a while back of maybe offering an Outback GT, which would basically be a L-GT but with the Outback grille and badges? Well, this is not that far off from my original thinking here. If anything, it's taking my idea and just pushing it a bit further.

I'd like to see it happen.

The JDM/EDM grille looks great compared to the train wreck we're about to get on the 2008 USDM Outback.

I really think if one takes alittle time to analyze that Subaru may be doing away with the Leg GT wagon to make the wagon available only with an Outback name, this will explain why Subaru threw this "STi" version of the Outback. I can see this:

Sedan version only = Legacy
Wagon verson only = Outback (GT? Bob you may have put your finger on it)

Clearly Subaru is test the public's response.

Legacys sell more in sedan form than wagons.
Outbacks sell more in wagon form than sedans.

Outback GT = lower suspension, 2.5 Turbo or 3.0R availability, performance wheels/tires - there goes your Leg GT in new form.

I like the idea....

Sweet, so it's like an H6 LLBean to STi rebadge.

I will shut up, regardless, but I have no interest in any Outback whatsoever, unless the styling is radically changed to be... Legacy Wagon like. Unlikely given how ugly 2008 one is.

Even the JDM one with Chrysler-grille looks hideous.

Besides, even if dropped still higher than stock Legacy.

Ok I am really confused, yes sometime it does not take that much. My understanding was that the ride hieght between the legacy and the outback was more than just suspension. That the OB had a body lift also. Can someone clarify?

That STi OB doesn't look that low.

Thanks, peace,

Greg

USDM Outback has the dreaded body lift, plus there are differences in rear links (and of course struts/shocks/springs).

I am sure that non-USDM Outbacks ride lower than the obscene USDM one. I am not sure if it has body lift or not. Chances are it does not. I can verify that later.

that's hardly an "STI" car. Just went to the existing STI catalog and bolted on what fits and made it a show car. Nothing more than any of us could have done by ordering through Japanparts.com or avoturboworld.com.

^ what he says.

In fact, the Legacy "tuned by STI" is no different.

well, not so fast! that car supposedly has a remapped STI ECU (good for some power on a turbo car), but otherwise I agree.

Is there another car somewhere? All I see is a NA car with an automatic.

the reference was to the 2.0L turbocharged 'Legacy Spec B Tuned by STI' sold in Japan and Australia last year - basically the turbo version of the OB you see pictured here in this thread. Take a Spec B and throw every part on it from the STI accessory catalog and sell it as a 'premium model' and you get the concept. Think of it like taking a BMW 330i and putting all the 'M Sport' stuff on it. It's still not an M3.

You don't need to make up a BMW 3-series example: They really did it with the "M535i" in the 1980s

^^Not really a good idea, and you don't see BMW trying that **** anymore.

If it's got an M on it, it's special, just as STI should be for Subaru. I don't care what the base car is, but when you give it your motorsport/tuner label, it better be more than just a simple trim/suspension job.
