Default Subaru of Australia Apology Letter to Porsche, BMW, Lotus & Peugeot - see this??

Just wondered if anyone has seen this? I searched the archives and found nothing. Apparently a Magazine in the UK compared the Subaru WRX to 2WD BMW, Porsche, Lotus, and Peugeot's and the WRX came out on top. Read the letter and see what ya think.

You didn't find it searching because it's about 2 years old. Porsche (I think it was Porsche anyway ) posted a rebuttal letter about a month or two later in the same magazine .

That's a pretty old ad. It mentions winning the WRC the last three years. That would place this somewhere around '98?

But its still a fun read. I wanted to get a copy of it but lost the link a long time ago. Thanks for reposting it. I'll share it w/ my BMW-phile friends.
