They will not be offered for sale as they will be destroyed by Subaru.

yep they usually have no VINs and are destroyed. I wonder why they don't just sell them as unregisterable cars so ppl can part them out and save some of that cool stuff. Such a waste.

Demo cars and magazine test/show cars are two different breeds.

Demo cars are public test drive cars and are sold. The others are not.

Magazine test/show cars are definitely not sold. True. Those are essentially ringers, with special factory "tuning" not generally available to the cars purchasable from dealerships. After the tests, those are scrapped.
