Default Is it good or bad?

Is it good or bad for SOA that so many other mid-range priced sports cars are coming to the market?

Is it good that the competiotion is growing like RX-8, 350Z, EVO, S2000, S60R and etc to push SOA for better and more competative products OR is it bad because there will be less customers to push STi further?

Just some thoughts...

If it weren't for the competition, we may not be getting the STI here in the first place. So its a good thing for everyone.

I agree

I fear its not going to last all that long... I don't know if the market can support it...

But I hope I'm wrong, this competition is awsome for us (the enthusiests), it gives us more options, as well as forcing our favorite makes to be even better...

What a great time to be a car nut The Second Golden Age of Performance car's is now

Arrow Loaded question...

It's neither/nor, or either or! Those who are getting an STi are either Subie loyalists, sideways drifters, hungry performance minded folks that have only read about the STi and hoped it would make it to the US.
The EVO is the only car similar on *your* list. Some who couldn't wait bought one of those. We know that Subaru knew of its coming due to the mis-guided press of a 2.0l engine instead of what is inside. So competition is GREAT!
