Talking The WRX reached the U.S what about these?

Subaru did good bringing the WRX so I think they should do even better and bring on these:
The B4 and Wagon Blitzen, 280hp, twin turbo, AWD and Porsche's tuned suspenssion:

and the Forester STI II with 250hp:

Just want til SCC talks about these cars and then FHI/SOA will listen...hahaha They're the only reason the WRX is here...

sorry for the venting...

I'd love a Forester turbo...if that came out here I'd marry my GF and convince her to get one...hehehe

I imagine it is more than SCC that contributed to the WRX arrival on US shores - like maybe this board had something to do with it, some larger circulation magazines, etc.

A B4 RSK and a WRX STi will complete my modest car stable. I'll be happy.

did you guys ever think the 1200 98's that sold out, the 99s that sold out and the 10000+ 00's and huge numbers of 01's selling had anything to do with it?

What that did is show SOA there REALLY is a market for a small AWD sports vehicle here.

you guys crack me up with your SCC theory

They can't bring them over until they make them much uglier...

Those cars are far too nice looking.

The next step for the legacy gt series in the US is either the H-6 or the WRX turbo, seeing how both are now federally certified and in the SOA parts bin. And don't count out a turbo Forester, people love that car around these parts, and a turbo would make sense for folks looking for a little more juice in their mini sport-ute...

I think we deserve the Blitzen with a 3L Flat 6 with Twin Turbos

I asked the lead designer for Subaru about bringing over the Legacy B4 while I was in Detroit and he said, "We don't have any plans to bring it over at this point. We'll probably see an STi version WRX before we see a B4."

So there ya go. Actually they seemed very interested in the possibility of bringing over the STi.
