Mahoney: The STI's looks will stay pretty much the same, it's the regular WRX that's going to get much more agressive styling. You're going to notice a lot of STI stlying cues in it's new facelift.
Looks like they already ****ed up.

Agreed. I think its the STI that I hate the most. I dont know. I dont like either.How does this sound for an idea, a 2.95L H6 Turbocharged engine with a combo of the 04-05 look and the 06-07 look, Available in Wagon or Sedan, Interior of the 2008 w/ nav screen, WRX hp range 285-300, STI hp range 360-375. Sounds good to me. I'd gladly pay $28k for that wrx. *Dreams*

It would be a helluva sales boost. They could make it happen somehow. Just for 2 years. I would trade my 06 wagon in and be a happy camper. And how bout for the WRB they use good paint not s**t paint that looks like starry night before you need your first oil change.

All in favor say, I.

New subarus are just to bland looking now for my taste.

I would buy one of those in a second. Turbo H-6 would be awesome.

If Subaru ever released an H6 turbo in a USDM model I'd get the motor and fit it in my STi somehow, but I wouldn't count on that. Subaru would be taking on a mountain of a challenge on par with what Toyota and Honda went through in the early-mid 90's creating a base of customers for their Lexus, Acura brands respectively. Subaru would need to draw on some serious financial support to attempt to put out higher end Legacy trims to compete with the $30-40k competition ie: BMW 1 and 3-series, Acura TSX and TL, Lexus IS250 and IS350, MB C350...etc. With the current craze for hybrids, and smaller displacement, I'd count on H4's powering most Subaru turbo applications for quite some time, before possibly H4 diesels or other hybrid setup in the next 5 or 6 years. I just don't see Subaru (SoA or SoJ) finding enough market share with people wanting to spend over $40-50k on a Subaru. If the performance was right (considering a LOT of us spend far more than 50k on car + upgrades), then of course I would spend the money, and I'm sure many of you would, but Subaru forum members aren't enough of a customer base to cause them to build such a car, imho.

Awesome, yes, will it come to US? Don't count on it. Did Subaru of Japan even put an H6 setup in their S402 legacy? Nope. As much as I would love an H6 to be utilized in a Subaru model to give something "closer" to a Nissan Skyline GTR setup, it won't happen. They won't give us what we realllllllly want in the US.

I guess there are no pics yet of the 2010 wrx? I guess I'm one of the few that doesn't think the 2008 sedan looks that bad, especially with the sport grille and spoiler delete. What I don't like is "only 224" hp. Right now I'm planning on checking out the new ralliart, genesis coupe, and possibly the camaro (if it comes in at a reasonable price) when they come out. But if the new wrx is going to come with around 260 hp and look a little more sporty, I'll definitely try to hold off until they come out. Heck my current loan will be up in 2010 and the smart thing to do would be to wait, but I'm sick of the annoying problems with my spec-v...

they did give us what we wanted kind of.....there have always been saying "Subaru needs to bring an STi wagon over here!" And they did, but gave it the hip title of a "hatch."

I would so rock a S402 with an H6

Anybody hear anything new about the 2010 STi? Anybody in japan to check out the car mags? There has to be something! It's almost time for the 2010s to come out and I haven't heard anything concrete!

good reads but im pretty much certain that the Spec-C has nothing to do with the US market (unfortunately) and the top link just talks about the already updated 2009 WRX. The info im looking for is anything to do with the next STi. i havent even seen any funny Japanese guesstimates as to what the new facelift will look like, if there will even be one. Which is the only way i would even consider trading in my 05 STi.
