    Saab is going to release an AWD hatchback that is essentially going to be an Impreza wagon with a different interior and slightly different exterior design. They are going to have one based on the regular Impreza and one based on the WRX. Aside from the different styling, it seems that it will be identical to the Subie.

    Saab: "Hey, GM, our cars suck, and nobody wants to buy them, can you help?"
    GM: "Hmm, let's see. Well, we own Fuji, which owns Subaru, and everyone loves the WRX. Maybe we should let you have the WRX to call your own. What do you think?"
    Saab: "Gee, thanks! We didn't want to have to go through all that designing a good car ourselves, as you've noticed from the past."
    Subaru: "Hey, what the fu-"
    GM: "Shut your holes, bitches, all your cars are belong to us!"

    i'm kinda riding the fence on this one. i've got me a little red WRX wagon now and i'm lovin it. when i first bought it, i think i would have been jumping for joy for some new front-end and interior stylings, but they've grown on me.

    here's the complete test... my car was stolen and i started looking for a new car. couldn't see any reason to buy anything but the same exact car. sure, Sti and EVO are faster, but nowhere near as useful. and there is not a single other car that compares right now.

    oh, they found my car a few days later with only some cosmetic damage... insurance taking care of it and i'm back on the road, smiling because i didn't have to go to those new lame headlights.

    yeah, man... that new B4 Legacy is the shit. it'll be nice if that makes it over to the States like they are saying with the turbo and all. that front end is so much nicer than the current WRX's.
