Post Photochop Idea

Hey I dunno if this has been done before, but if it hasnt, it would be cool to see....i was thinking, the outback looks almost like the 2.5RS from the front...why not combine the front of a 2.5 with the rear of an outback and make a subaru hatchback? I know, I know, subaru wasn't meant to be a hatchback, but it would be cool to see, and if i actually had any skills whatsoever, id try myself

ummm.....

I don't really understand your concept, try again. Aside from the front bumper, isn't the outback sport exactly what you described???

None of the Outback series is a hatchback, as far as I know. They're all wagons, except the Legacy Outback Sedan. That's part of the confusion here about what you said. I'm not into hatchbacks.

I like it!

Whether you call it a 2-door hatch (yeah, I know some folks don't like that word),or a 2-door "Sportwagon", I like the concept, and I'd buy one as well.

I need the utility of a hatch or wagon, but like the looks of a 2-door. But I wonder if it would sell in enough numbers to make it worthwhile for Subaru to market? Disn't they drop the 2-door from the new Impreza line because of what they felt were poor sales?

That's the one to own right there. Anyone with some money could do it. Just have a body shop put coup RS doors on a RS Wagon, with a little space to make up for of course. Seeing what crazy things people have done to their cars, I could see it happening pretty easily. So how about a 2 door Legacy GT or Legacy Wagon, I'd like to see that

Man, if that were around when I was shopping, that would be sitting in my garage right now!

It sort of reminds me of the BMW Mcoupe. Just needs a longer hood.

Good job guys, that is some good chopping on a great concept.
