Angry Can we PLEASE lose the damn Spy pics and fakes?

I am tired of the same spy pics and fakes of the MY2002 Impreza being posted up here all the time.

I say we all wait patiently (Key word here) for the actual car to make it's debut. Only then will we all judge how the car looks. It's hard, but we can all wait.

I partially agree with you, in the fact that it DOES get alittle annoying. BUT, speculation is part of the HYPE process, and hype sells. Cars, movies, video games, whatever. In some ways i actually enjoy it.

Three identical fakes, one who knows where and the other two at the dock in Japan.

Yeah, I think they're just hoping these latest pics are still fakes. Not that I blame them... I'd rather have Integra lights then the ones on the MY02's. Other then that, though, the body looks pretty decent.

Reflex,

I agree with you that HYPE gets the car going, but what if it looks ugly like what some of the spy pics are showing. Then this would adversely affect the sales. Everybodys up for it, they come out with a POS and everybodys turned off. It was sorta like the previews for the Phantom menace. Except, people go see the movie on the same day it's released. In terms of a car, people have at least a couple of months to soak it in.

Sev.. We need the three bs indicators. The flag, the banner, and the meter.

Being a graphic designer who uses Photoshop contantly, I would say those pics have not been tampered with. They are lacking all of the tail-tail signs when I drag them into Photoshop to examine them.

Ok Sam, I'll give you that. BUT look at all the ugly ass cars (FOCUS,ECHO) out there that people actually bought hype or no hype. I have learned that ther is no accounting for taste. I'll wait till I see an official announcement from Subaru before I generate an opinion on the new Imp design.

here i am making no sense again...

Dude, wake up and smell the stale coffee. That is the new Impreza. The wait is over. You're looking at it.

Don't cry...I'm disappointed too.

See, it is all just one huge giant conspiracy! Subaru has infiltrated this bulletin board and they are just posting those pictures to see what we think of them! Then they will use our feedback to improve the cars! SEE??

Haha.

I think the only possible scenario in which this wouldn't be the new Impreza would be the the really far flung one.

The pictures are not fakes, the cars are.

Very unlikely, but Subaru could have built ~7 running prototypes and let people think that this would be the new car. It would be the biggest car introduction scam in history!

I am not banking on that, but it is the only theory I can think of in which the mantis-eyed car is not the real deal.

Reflex,

True.. True.. Yeah I saw the trend start with the VW Bug. Ughh... *shiver* The Focus doesn't look all that bad though. The lines are a little too "geometrical" if you get my drift.

If (that is IF) the actual design supports the pics, the "Imp" will be the appropriate name for this car from then on. Lets wait till the official release to make a judement, k?
