I think he is. His web page is still up, you gotta pay for server time somehow.

Well iirc he said the 2.0L STi would not, and that maybe a 2.2L will be reborn or a new 2.5L motor.

So I would say he was right.

well if general manager said it, it must be true...

Honestly, dealerships are retards, I go there and laugh when they try to tell me about cars they know nothing about. then i educate them about them

They are testing a H6 turbo drivetrain but i doubt they will release it next year.

Amen......but having said that just two years ago we heard that there was no way the STi would have a 2.5 motor (with 300/300 no less). There tends to be a lot of rumors and some of them actually come true so we can't discount everything. My personal belief is that Subaru is going to knock one out of the park with the next STi and 350-400 hp is a possibility. Hopefully they can keep the price reasonable.

I think they should try a 6cyl turbo, that would be scary. It would just equate to larger car payments that I would be happy to make, if it is indeed 400hp.

Wrong! For example. The new ESX STi will sport 425hp be 50 state legal and still have the subaru factory warranty.

Not true; the Outback passes all car emissions etc. standards.; it is only a "truck" because of some technicalities of ground clearance etc.

It's also not a very drivable vehicle.

Can we say turbo LAAAAAAAAAAAAAAG.

It's fine for a track car, but as a daily driver the lower powered FQ versions are much better. Top Gear reported that they would take the FQ340 any day of the week over the FQ400 because it was just less of a chore to drive.

i REALLY doubt whether the Impreza/Forester will EVER have a H6.. they gotta differentiate bw their cars someway right? if you want an H6 get and Outback.. the sizes of all Subarus are too close right now.. they gotta at least differentiate by engines IMO

If there was a 400 hp STi the price would be way to high and it would lose its image of an affordable sports car. And with that much power insurance would be waaaaay too high for me to even consider getting one.

Dealers are complete tards. Before I bought my 05 STI, I was looking at Evo's and went to a Mitsu dealer and asked if they had heard of the MR. They looked at me like I was on drugs and had never heard of it. A month later after I buy my STI, out comes the EVO MR. Dealers know nothing!

Legacy or even Outback STi that might be cool.

Although I might rather see a Monster Outback.

Say 12" clearance on a H6 Sedan. Air suspension and adjustable by 4 inches. 8.4 to 12.4 ?

i guess no one really paid attention, they are testing a turbo H6 drivetrain....in a legacy, but thats not to say its going to actually be in a legacy. I doubt they would put it in an impreza, it could possibly be the H6TT drivetrain rumored to be for the B11S.

it should be noted that i dont actually know its for sure turbo, but using some common sense and logic, current 3.0 liter outputs 250, this is putting out 375 supposedly with same displacement, so i am assuming forced induction

I dont think the WRX is a ULEV. in fact, I dont think any turbo models are. About 400hp, well, i mean I highly doubt the new Sti is going to be 400hp. The Evo VIII-FQ400 has 400 hp, and is INCREDIBLE. But then again its very pricy. I could, however, believe that subaru might make another version of the STi, like a more pricey and more displacement one, and THAT might have 400hp.
