No orders, dealers will sell from their stock only.

Approx 300/month to dealers based on their past WRX (?) sales volume.

Not a limited edition in that sense, but certainly limited availability.

Default make all they can sell

I suspect given the financial conditions in Japan, they will gladly make all they can sell.

According to MSN:

Quote:
The STi will be a 2004 model, incorporating new front styling that’s debuting in showrooms by March on “regular” 2004 Subaru Impreza WRX models. Specifically, the single round headlamps of the previous WRX are gone, replaced by four-element headlamps.
Quote:
Numbers will be limited to 4,000-5,000 annually, he said. No final price has been set, but Adcock said it’s likely to be in the low $30,000s.

Yeah, remember the WRX was "limited production" to 10,000 in the first year. When Subaru saw it was selling well that bumped up to 15,000 for the first year, then finally 20,000 for the first year.

I would wait to buy one till later in the year.

The dealers will be putting heafty price hikes on these at first, but when all the youngins who cant afford the Corvette ZO-6 insurance premiums pass these up...They will start to collect dust and the deals will be out there.


I'm just waiting for the first wrecked one so I can get the engine.

ETA...1 week after they start selling them.
