One step above vaporware, but it's great to see they finally built a prototype.

Pretty cool, but it really makes me think of how the Prodrive P2 was never produced & released

it looks like a 3-way love child of a S2000, viper, and DB9. Not that thats a bad thing, plus you wont be able to look at it too long since its so fast.

Totally. But it does sound like a perfect roadster for up here in Canada. Hope it's not priced like a Boxster though.

If you click on the link to their main page that someone posted, it gives the price in pounds. They're about twice as expensive then their Impreza brothers.

So yes, they're gonna be priced like a boxster.

but my point is, if they can do it and make a road legal car, the logic would follow that Subaru could do it as well.

IIRC the P2 was never meant to be a production car. It was more of a production concept to showcase themselves. Sure would be sweet if this car was made and brought to the states though.
