    I hope Subaru doesn't stoop to that level producing a stripped down card board box version of the STi

    Seriously...we're all enthusiasts but having a brand new car in this day and age with no power anything/ac is a little annoying if you ask me...was 86 lbs worth it on the Evo? Meh. .02

    Im hoping bigger turbo, lighter but all of the same options as the USDM STi, A real aggressively tuned suspension. Most important big fog lights standard. Im sure Subaru will offer a spec C option, because of Mitsubishi bringing over the Evo Rs. Im sure we won't know until next january. Subaru Ive got faith in Ya

    Not only do I think this won't happen, I wouldn't be surprised to see the STi become extinct, and the sole market share of SOA relying on their "luxury" sedan, the Legacy.


    Yes, I realize I am a huge nay-sayer, but so what?

    Well what about world rally?? The STi will be around for along time. Same with the Evo. It would be a good idea for subaru to bring over say a flat six twin turbo legacy I know Mitubishi will bring the Evo 9 in 2006 or 2007. I doubt subaru will not respond.

    I think all it would take is a larger turbo for the STi and that is about it.... Somthign that could easily flow 550-600cfm. I mean the 16G on last years EVO flowed around 520-530cfm.

    Unless of course Mitsubishi goes out of business.
    This car is making a poor man even poorer.

    I was browsing the EvoM forums a while back and I remember reading somewhere that there were rumors Mitsu had planned to discontine the evo due to the upcoming release of the eclipse. I've also heard that there's a chance future evo's (if they're still making 'em) are not going to be built on the lancer platform.

    Now I can't confirm if these are true or not so please don't get on me if someone finds otherwise. I'll see if I can find any "official" info. So for now they're just rumors.

    I wont be surprised to see the Skyline, Supra and a Legacy STi come out at the same time around 2007.

    Too bad the Skyline will be a G35 on steroids

    well today esx had dyno day..free dynos for all and a bunch of peopel showed up..i stopped by after work and some guy from a local subaru dealer showed up and said that in 2006 all wrx's (yup u heard me wrx's not sti's) will have 2.5 liter turbocharged engines..basically they are gonna be at the sti level...this could mean two things...one ..timdog could be right ..STI is going extinct because wrx is just becoming more powerful and taking its place.. or 2 ...wrx with 2.5 liter is gonna be like sti of today...and maybe just maybe (if we pray hard enough) the wrx sti is gonna kick some major evo mr or whatever else type evo ass...that's what i hope...or #3...this guy didnt know jacksh!T and was talking out of his a$$ 2 sound cool

    supra, doubt it... toyota doesn't seem to want to do anything these days =\

    skyline, already got it *cough* g35... the new GTR supposedly is gonna have a completely new chassis of its own by then... but will more than likely a TT v-6... i sure hope nissan fixed that tie-rod strength problem by then

    legacy STi... have to wait and see...
