    Outback XT

    I just saw the new Turbo Outback in Car and Driver, sounds pretty sweet for a wagon. 0-60 in 7.0 sec in auto trim, 0-60 5.9 sec in manual trim. I think the manual version hits the 1/4 in the low 14's... It sports a 2.5 with a IHI Turbo, 250 hp at 6k, 250 ft/lbs at 3600 rpm. I am assuming a similar setup to the Forrester. Not bad at all, GO SUBARU!!!

    What do you guys think? I can't wait for the legacy to come out.

    I don't know if it is a repost, but it is a good find

    Awesome man...I can't believe these cars now a days....SW 0-60 in less than 6 seconds is just crazy if you ask me...

    I remember how fast the new Gol GTI 2.0 16v (Golf in America) was. 0-60 in like 8.7 seconds....

    Legacy GT should be closer to 5 seconds flat... 1xx pounds lighter and better tires. Curious what is faster in the straight line, the Forester XT or Legacy GT...

    Every Subaru model now has a turbo variant, how sweet is that! IMHO Subaru is the most performance oriented manufacturer on the block right now, with the exception of the exotics and the german brands. Dodge is starting to do the same.

    I believe the Baja has very similiar numbers to the forester. Low to mid 5 second dashes to 60. Aheineken, whats up the meet?
