    Lightbulb Evo VII info...When does the STi hit?

    Question: Has Subaru officially said when the STi will hit US shores? If not, what's the general consensus on a time estimate?

    This might be a "Hi, and welcome to last year" thing for some of you, but I just read in my October edition of C&D that the Evo VII will be here in January, make about 250HP, have a base price of $27K, 0-60 time of 5.4 seconds, and a whole list of excuses for costing more than the standard WRX but not being able to out-perform it...

    Also, is there any new/concrete info on the US version of the STi?

    But it's got 250hp compared to our 227. Obviously it will beat us.

    STI is still a rumor - one I won't believe until I see a rumor inline with Subaru's US marketing efforts: the SPT version.

    Actually.. I recently talked to my Subaru Tech in TO and he told me to expect them between March - May in Canada. He works for the Subie dealership so I think it's quite reliable.

    Also.. I was watching a British car review show.. and they said the STi is approx 2.5 thousand pounds more than the Evo VII.

    Subaru markets the STi bits as SPT in this country 'cause we're too stupid to understand "Subaru Technica International" and need to be told "Subaru Performance Tuning". I'd be a bit surprised if they weren't consistent with their marketing. On the other hand the "STI" version is generating a certain amount of hubub so maybe I'm wrong and they will go with that name. We'll see.

    Like hell. We'll be the laughing stock of the world with a name like SPT. So inferior-sounding when compared to STi...Ah, STi...Has such a noble ring to it...
