The styling of the MP3 looks mighty familiar. Could it be hmmmm...the RS.
I saw a pic of the car in blue and it was a freaking dead ringer for the RS. Big round fog lights. Just different head and tail lights.Add a hood scoop or three and you've got a Scooby.

That IS wagon...uh...that cant be legal.

I thought the exact same thing when I saw the MP3. Right down to the shape of the hood. They probably had to follow the old adage of "If you can't beat 'em, join 'em."

Ok, is it just me, or are car companys trying to cash in on the Impreza?


Everyone made fun of the impreza styling, saying it was ugly, boxy, or whatever. But now that its proven itself as a performance car, and people are begining to antiquate the look of the subaru with performance, and with the WRX coming out this year, you cant not anymore. It seems like car companies are trying to get in on a peice of the action.

he MP3, has the driving style lights on the front. THe rest of the car though is preaty funny...it has an IS grill and head lights, and Mustang hood, and a Mirage/Lancer rear end. Weird.

The Acura...what color did id debut in...hmm...looks alot like rally mica blue.

The Nissan Sentra SE-R...looks almost exactly like a 2.5 front end. And the overall shape of the car is very Impreza.

The IS wagon. The front end looks very similar to that of an Impreza as it is...but that blue color again...looks alot like a Subaru. In fact i had to double take, beucase i saw the reflection of the SUBARU logo on teh floor, and i thought it was the new WRX wagon for a seconed.

Just some observations i found a little interesting.

Also, does anyone else find the RX-8 to be ugly..and well...un RX like? It doesnt have that same stance, and mean look that all the previous RX models have had. I still think the FC3S is the best looking. But im partial to 80's styled cars for some odd reason... i dunno why i am myself...so dont ask.

My friend went to the L.A. Auto Show. When he saw the MP3, he thought he was in the Subaru section. He told me that it looked like an Impreza. He looked for the hood scoop and since it was missing, thought it was a lower model Impreza. Then he looked up and saw he was in the Mazda section. I didn't believe him till I saw it for myself. Whack!!!

Sorry guys, but Subaru didnt invent the Sports Compact market...

The Si, SE, and other such varients, have been along for much longer than the RS...

And this may insult some of you, but the RS is just a Factory Moded compact car. All these companies, including subaru, got their ideas from the custom Compact Car market thats been around for awhile now. I'm just glad they're actually acknowledging it still exists and making these kick ass, good price performance compacts! (I'm seriously going to have to consider that MP3, if its around 17-18k, ive heard alot of great things about the new Protege's, and this one looks even better)

Oh, and the MP3 looks like an Evo, not a RS

Nice pictures, Larry! I would be very interested what the engine specifications are on some of the cars you have pictured. Uh, skip the Porsche and Diablo. Oh - and it is S4 Avante, Avanti is a Studebaker.
