Default STI Allocations

I know that everyone is going STI crazy right now , and I totally understand why but we must remember that they are not making a lot of these beautiful cars. Everyone is talking about getting one but only a select few will be able to own one unless Subaru pumps up the production(I dont see that happening). Just dont get your hopes up to much....

yeah. they'll make more. trust me. as long as they aren't losing money on the car, they will make more.

everyone thought the wrx was limited release too, but look at them now. there will be plenty of STis for everyone who can afford them...in due time.

And to me, everyone having them is not a good thing. I like the idea of a limited edition car. It makes it something special. Yes the STI is special regardless but when I see 10 WRX's a day, it has become no big deal to me.

I dont think subaru cares, all there interested in is your wallet! If people want STi, by golley they'll give you STi's! They dont care as long as the President of subaru has the extra money to buy his many ferrari's and lambo's

I still stick by my prediction that by 2004 they'll be selling as many of this as they can. It will be just like the WRX.

Remember, demand for this car won't be as strong as it seems on this board. Most people, even ones who bought a WRX, will not pay $32K for a SUBARU with NO RADIO. ($32K is a guess BTW)

Which is fine by me. Its separates the regular drivers from the true performance enthusiasts. We know better Then I can actually get my hands on one a year from now!

Oh I understand that, I expect Subaru to pump them out as long as they make money but I love the idea of owning a coveted car. Much like Acura did with the Type R. They made there allocations and thats it. They are now somewhat difficult to find. I just love when new cars get released because they are harder to see in person but I hate it when all of a sudden, you see 10 a day.

I think if the demand is there, it will be met. SOA can only make so much per unit(dealer cost). Higher volume usually reduces production costs. The only caveat would be the C.A.F.E law which might limit production based on the fleets average fuel economy.

I dislike the idea of a limited release like the ITR because inevitably you find some jacktard who thinks it's a good idea to "upgrade" it with some crappy parts, thereby ruining the value.

ITRs should never be modded!

Since people can't seem to leave well enough alone, I say bring over as many as possible.

But the ITR isn't limited in Japan, IIRC, and it's obvious FHI is no longer treating us like an undeserving stepchild.

I agree, the ITR is wonderful in stock form

Spoken like a true purist!

I'm of the belief that it can never accelerate or stop fast enough.

Yes, I like the way an ITR looks in my rear view mirror.

I live in Canada. I bet I will be lucky to be able to even look at one, let alone purchase one... an STi that is.

Yeah...thats right....Subaru will use the STI to lure me in to buy a Baja or Forester.........

Yes..the WRX was supposed to be limited too! (right)

they will make more...unles they will be losing money on each one which is not so likely.

please stock market.....get back online! I need some dough!

This is what worries me - profit. As long as they are making profits on these cars, and the MSRP to do so isn't ridiculously high (remember this is still a Subaru), I can see them slowly ramping up the production because it will sell. I just hope that they didn't shot themselves in their feet.... Now I wonder what will happen to the RS and TS.

They won't go anywhere. Most people don't buy a Subaru for performance. They buy them because they are safe, they have AWD, and they last. Hell, I'd bet that most WRX owners don't have a clue what the SCCA is.
