it's built next to the impreza on a FHI assembly line in japan.

there is a massive thread about this in the news and rumors section. lots of subaru purists are choked... and i thought i needed a life

does this mean i can bring my wrx to a saab dealership for service?

I think it's the reverse since it's just a Impreza with a new shell and interior. Actually I like the Saab body a lot.

Only good things I see come out of it is u get a choice on styling with luxury inside while keeping the good Subaru engine and AWD.

The lights look too much like the TSX and the new Legacy IMHO. Anyone got a pic from the sides?

Oh and imagine the chaos when ppl starts switching Subaru and Saab badges.. hehe

IIRC,
They will have a sedan configuration (a la RS/ WRX) and a wagon configuration. (TS/ WRX)

92 Aero = WRX (2.0L Turbo)
92 (Regular?)= TS/ RS (NA 2.5)

The Saab version is allegedly 225 hp instead of the 227.
I think it may have a leather interior though... <-making that last bit up.

I really like it.
