    Good article. Lots of new stuff for the STI reportedly.

    My predictions: The WRX sedan will be major hit. The hatch will grow after some initial slow sales. The STi: opinions witheld until super-secret-subaru actually releases information on it. I refuse to speculate based on myth and legend, and that my friends, is ALL we have on the STi to date. The only thing for sure is that it will be based on the hatch, the JDM models will still be 2.0 L. Subura hasn't even confirmed the 2.5 will be carried over for the 08. hmmmm...maybe I shouldn't have said that as the next rumour we will see will be the new 3.6 TT as the next STi engine.

    they have not announced pricing yet. Only 2008 model(s) with pricing on the dealer site are the Legacy/Outback

    2008 forester, tribeca and impreza are still blank in the pricing sheet info.

    Lighter and more power are the ONLY two things I like that I've heard/seen of the new STi so far....

    Thanks for the information. I'm really excited about the new dark grey color. Hopefully the STI comes in this color as well.

    i think im going to puke if i look at road & track's pics of the 08 STI again..... i miss the 03-05 so much.... the 06-07 i liked tho it did take time to grow on me.... this new impreza, it just isnt subaru. imprezas thru the years always had a look all their own. the new imprezas make me think subaru is trying to follow the styles of other japanese companies. it is disappointing. i have been waiting since 2003 when i first saw an STI in person to buy one. i was planning on buying the 2008 STI when i graduated college. now i think im gonna buy an low mileage 07, or wait and hope the 09 is redesigned for the better

    Well just looking at the speculative "photos" so far the STi looks interesting. I'm hoping they correct the pricing, as I'm not paying $35K, and I'm also hoping they stay at it regardless of hatch sales, as I'm not buying an 08 to beta test for them. With any luck 08 hatches will sell slow enough to put prospective 09 STi hatch buyers in a more acceptable situation. I might bite then but I don't want to get rid of my bugeye, and adding a hatch will put us at... five cars. We'll see.

    doesnt look like a rally inspired car anymore. its going to probably be more of a trendy car now. looks like a cross between the scion tc and mazda 3.

    I like the new WRX

    I guess its no surprise I like the new WRX, I currently drive a hatchback, the main drawbacks to the WRX for me in the past have been:
    1) can't get a 2 door
    2) can't get a hatch
    3) no 6 speed option (dont want to dump over 30g on an STi)
    When i bought my 03 SVT Focus I looked at a base model Impreza because they were in similar price range, and I got way more for my money with the Focus, 6 speed trans, heated leather seats, awesome sound system, and the Focus was better in all categories: braking, accelerating, handling, comfort & economy; the only advantage the Subaru had was AWD, but that wasnt enough for me. Now I'm looking into new cars, and my orignal plan was to get a Mazda Speed 3, since the MS3 and SVTF are cousins, but after seeing the new Impreza I'm hooked; neither of them comes in a 2 door, but at least the Impreza will be AWD...still want a 6 speed though.....
