I bought my car from the guy you are referring to. He's knowledgeable.

There is going to be a Forester STi this summer.

All the sales people are pretty sure that this is fact not fiction.

That will be awesome if true! I wish I could buy 1 of each of all the STi models as they come out My wife has the Forrester and I like it, I wonder what a 300hp version is like. I guess I could toss the groceries around nicely in one of those!

News New Information!

My friend works at a Subaru dealer and he just got out of a regional meeting. He said they talked about a few things that tickled my fancy:

New Legacy will produce over 300hp with a Turbo'd H6 motor.

Subaru is coming out with an "RX-8" type car 4 door producing 400hp with its TWIN Turbo H6 motor. ( I believe JUN was doing something like this as well )

The 2.5 RS is now going to be renamed the "2.5i"

The WRX WILL have a 2.5L motor.

No information yet as to what the new Impreza will look like yet as well as the others.

This all sounds so sweet.
But why would Subaru suddenly throw in a turbo H6 engine. Legacy STi maybe?
For some reason, I only believe the 2.5T Impreza engine rumor.

If a 300hp H6T came with the legacy.....it would be my next car.

The B11S Concept is the only thing comes to mind...and it did have a twin turbo H6 motor in it ...plus it had suicide doors like the "RX-8"

Everything is pretty much correct, except for the B11.... There's no definate answer or time frame on that car, it's still on the boards like the convertable Subaru idea.... And the H6-Turbo will be the Legacy 3.0R, not a Leagcy STi......

See, I'm not crazy.....

Even if they do release a Leg. 3.0R or STi it will be in the 50K+ price range and then you are in a whole new group of rivals.

Plus I get the feeling from alot of members here price is one of the many things that attract them to Subaru so a 50K+ vehicle might be a little harder of a sell for FHI. I hope it works out though as I would probably be in the market for one in about 5 years.
