Its been interesting to see all the latest and fakish pictures of the new Impreza. I'm as impatient as everybody else but I would like to know when the official pictures will be brought out. I thought I heard something about this October? Any ideas?

Thanks,

Davis

Hate to break it to you guys, but the pics from the docks were real. I was on the fence about it before, but those photos were not doctored... That thing will NEVER darken my driveway. I'll buy a VW before that monstrosity...

hey, don't rag on VW too much- nice interiors and the external designs, given the new Impreza shots, are much nicer too.

check out the VR6/4Motion Bora (jetta)...

Talking

VW????
The Jetta (Bora) and Golf V6 4motion came in last place both in "Autocar" and "Car" handling test days,
"evo" put it down also with only 3 stars, and "Top gear" timed it 7.6 sec 0-60 compare this with "Top gear"'s 5.2 sec for the Impreza Turbo!
I talked to Subaru of Israel CEO who saw the car in person and he said it looks meaner in the flesh, also he said it has an awsom interior with carbon fiber, and I bet it drives like hell, so give it a chance,
Oh and by the way first official pictures on the 23rd of august.

Cool

Turk,
the new U.S Jetta is called Bora in europe,
they dropped the Jetta name two models ago, the one before was called Veneto and now Bora.
the reason is that the booted Golf failed big time in Europe while in the U.S it was a succsses.
Matt,
unfortunently he said nothing about the U.S but from what I hear it should be the same as the GT (Turbo) coming to Europe,
the specs they got are as follow:
engine- 220hp, better torque, 1330kg (current GT is 1250kg)
length- the same
width- 1750 Vs. current 1690 or Legacy's 1695
interior- Auto climate control (mechenical like in Volvo), 4 airbags, oval gauges, crbon fiber air vents, drriled pedals and alcantera effect gear knob.
STI Sev,
August 23rd on Subaru Japan site, October is the European debut in Birmingham, on the December the first cars reach Europe's shores,
don't know about the U.S,
all you guys if you get the Turbo version, don't put down the GT model, it was chosen as car of the decade in U.K,
it does 0-60 at around 5 sec!!! (see Top gear and Autocar), it dissmisses most cars on the road including Porsches (not 911 Turbo), S4s, I know I've been driving one for 5 years now.
Cheers Udi.

Question

Oddly enough I have heard from two different people (yeah I know 2 is not many, but..) that they have seen the new body style impreza in pictures at their local dealer. I didn't get out of them whether or not it was a pic with the offical SUBARU "stamp" on the image or if it was the stuff we have all seen posted here. The one guy I talked to even said he put his name on a waiting list (I have my doubts about the truth of that statement). I haven't had the chance to run to those dealers yet to verify what they have said. Anyone else have any cooroborating (sp?) experiences? I am inclined to doubt this info as being true as most people would have grabbed the picture and run to the nearest scanner and net connection to spread the word. Anyone talk to their dealers?
