Unhappy



The only way out of this is if this car is a hoax concocted by SOJ, to divert attention from the real car, which no one has ever seen, which will debut next month and astonish everyone.

Here's hoping...

And this is the REALLY SCARY BIT

The US Impreza will have the naturally aspirated 2.5-liter boxer four. A turbo 2.0 will be a distinct possibility for Subaru fans across the two Big Ponds.

Oh my gawd what are we gonna do ??????????

I'm just glad i"m going back to Aussie in 2 years time

Oh my God! I soooo wanted a Impreza but if that's what they're gonna look like...ugh!!! I can't believe Subaru went with that new syle! I sure hope some designer gets fired!!!

I don't know what to do...I'll just have to find a cool looking '00 Impreza when I'm ready to buy...

Indeed it's hideous. Looks to me like an Audi A4 shagged a Neon, and we're being given the offspring.

But let's not judge a book by its cover. The greatest things about the Scoob are all under the sheet metal. And if that Turbo is indeed on its way stateside, I'll be lining up for it, even if it is uglier than a bulldog licking piss off a thistle. Because I think it'll take all of five minutes before we seen an absolute flood of new front ends for the car from any manufacturer you can care to think of.

Ahh yes my plan is coming together nicely. Subaru will release a Craptastic new Impreza design and ask too much for it based purely off of the hype they stirred up before hand. Then also in 2002 Mazda will release the new Evolve or RX7 thingy along with that Street Concept 2002 car. Then we can all jump ship to the newly resurrected Mazda. Oh that will be a good day! We'll still have our 2.5RS's sitting in the garage but by then we will have all added a turbo, bought a newer car and told Subaru to stick their heads back up their a$$es where they must have just come from.

Can you tell I had a bad day at work?

That car would not even look good if you were drunk! What was Subaru thinking about when they designed that! Can we all say UGLY! I think I will keep my OBS and save for a Turbo!

Angry

Worst...Impreza...Ever

I don't like the Fiat Multipla front end or the Forester Arse, and Although I might someday buy one when my "baby" runs out, I'm not going to line some dealer's pockets to outbid the other five people in the county who want one. I'll pay my car off in a couple years, and see what happens.

That is not a good-looking vehicle. Certainly not worth sacrificing all the mods I've already done AND taking the hit on the resale value of the RS. Maybe just the motor.

All that waiting - for this, this, NEON!

I don't think I can do it. I was going to hold my nose and buy damn thing but it looks like it has a clown face... Maybe I can get a good deal on a 2001... It actually looks worse than the autocar pics. The english language fails me. I can't think of an adjective to adequately express my... sorrow really. They took everything I liked about the impreza away in one fell swoop. I really wanted a WRX but I can't drive that monstrosity. Maybe I'll buy a VW or an Audi... In fact let me state for the record that they could put a frigging warp drive in the damn thing and I wouldn't buy it for 22K...

Those of you are hoping for a turbo had best hope they make it plenty fast. That way when you go by in a blur the incredible fugly-ness will be less noticable. With the new car that ugly I don't even think I will have to t-charge the 00 as I will get enough satisfaction just looking at my 00. To be honest, I like the side profile, assuming they would add a proper wing. The front? I'm not even gonna start. The rear looks like an Acura TL or CL will GIGANTIC tail lights. Is there a rear-ending problem in Japan that they need those lens to let EVERYONE know they are braking?

Buy your 00's and 01's while you can. Remember a proper turbo install will only cost you 5k to 7k with everything you would need. Depending on what you paid for the RS you might still be ahead.

I guess i can consider myself lucky, i got a MY00 RS. Now, for whoever mentioned the RX-evolve... You can bet i'll be first in line for a down payment on that baby. That's going to be a sweet-ass car. Gotta love the rotary!!! But gotta love the AWD a bit more

Ah! Ah! get it away! get it away!

Seriously though, whats with the little black square in the drivers side rear window? It also appears in the 3/4 rear pic as well. Looks like someone blacked it out, didnt want us to see something?

If that is indeed the car then i think i would feel offended that Subaru would actually think that we would like that thing. I mean come on, do they think our taste is in our a**?

Maybe we'll get lucky and that car will only go to Australia, or NZ, or someplace in Europe, and maybe we'll get a different version. Wishful thinking, no? For all i care that car can stay right on that dock.

Oh *****. I can't be any more happier now that I got a MY00, damn that is f-ugly. Subaru has bastardized the Impreza IMO. Oh well, I'll feel better by just looking at mine

Hey, I noticed that little black square.
Why in the world would someone with "spy pics" take the time to paint out (poorly) what appears in the front view to be some kind of window sticker/destination tag?

Damn. Guess there's going to be a run on 2001 models

The english language is inadequate to describe the murky depths of my disappointment. In other words, that thing sucks. I won't buy one. Oh well, hopefully the Celica gt4 will make it stateside.

Reminds me of that Casablanca Version *****! I wonder if its the same dumba$$.

I think they had a lottery of different designers and the lucky sob was the Casablanca designer.

Shoul shave fierd his a$$ when he turned in the design!

Now, when you se a World Rally Challenge, comentators will go "and closelly followed by the Corolla of, wait no, that is the Impreza driven by..."

Is Subaru really going/focusing towards the "Family Car" market?? Although that WRX has a 280 hp engine, but it looks like it is a 120hp compact car. They don't care about what we really want.. the aggressiveness of the Impreza.
