    To be unveiled at the New York Auto Show.. 12 Days and counting!!

    http://www.subaru.com/legend 

    The question is.. what kind of electronic gadgetry will it contain that will make me want to trade in my current Impreza?  ATD? (Active Torque Dynamics)  Prodrive P2 anyone?

    some of those "spy" photos I've seen on nasioc aren't too far from that.  Those guys on that site sure get they're panties in a wad about who's got the right pic of what it'll look like.

    NASIOC has a FAQ, written in a (futile) attempt to cut down on the spittle content of the ongoing discussion.  It has some good information.

    The photos from the latest Motor Trend appear to be genuine.

    Personally, I like the new body.  :)

    Those certainly seem the best to date, though I think either MT paid Subaru alot of money to break the covers or its fake, and Subaru has done an obnoxiously good job keeping secrets, so I guess we'll see.

     Still nothing on the sedan though, and we have to wait until the fall for the STi.

    Subaru is pretty sneaky when it comes to throwing the press and competition off their sent.  I recall that they generated false press releases that were never published that understated the STi's power output just to fool Mitsubishi.  Well played.

    I like the Focus too.  No accounting for taste, I suppose.

    I've been thinking about it some and, while I'm in the apparent minority that likes the design, it just seems fishy that one guy on the whole planet got his May MT and decided to scan just the pics to share with the world.

    regardless, the specs are what matters [:D]

    If the next generation Impreza/STi looks anything like those Motor Trend pictures, I will go ahead and put my deposit down on a Evo X.

    I think nasioc is gonna collapse under the wt of all the new Impreza posts.  That thread was started 30hrs ago and theres already 1,124 posts.  Then it'll start all over when the official pics come out and it's different.

    When did Subaru hire all of Chrysler's desiginers.  It's a Dodge Caliber.

    No, its a Mazda 3.  No, its a Ford Focus.  No, its a BMW 1 series.  No, its a XYZ.  Seriously, somebody has said it looks like every single hatchback made in recent memory.  Maybe that's because its a hatchback. [8-)]  Its getting old.

    The blue oval on the front pretty much solidifies the Focus.
