Play the multimedia thing on the Borrego. It has been seen before, and noted that it had Subaru underpinnings, but the details are that it is an Outback with aftermarket Turbo and intercooler.

I would drive that Toyota RSC - with the right powerplant - in a heartbeat!

And Subaru started it all. The RS2.5 was amazingly popular considering that Subaru didn't uh... ADVERTISE IT!! Then they bring the WRX and an advertising blitz for it... and all of a sudden Mitsubishi is saying "oh shit! Why didn't we release the Lancer EVO over there?!?"

Some of the Lancer fans really need to thank Subaru. If they hadn't taken a chance and proved that there is a market, the Mitsubishi boys wouldn't be getting the Lancer.

I think with the way the WRX looks and the restricted power, a lot of Suby folks (me included) would love to get their hands on an EVO!!!

Yes - it's an Outback underneath. But its turbocharged.

Is there an echo in here?

EVO magazine rated the top 12 cars of the year.

#1 Zonda
#9 Lancer EVO VII (said it kept up with the new lambo well!)

Others in the running include (can't remember the order...)
New Lambo
Porche 911 carerra
BMW M3 (2nd place i think)

WRX Sti... Didn't even make the list...
They said too many other similar cars were way better...

Just thought I would share

As for the EVO...

I like the power
I like the seats
I like the Brembo brakes

I don't like the styling (yes you all say the same thing about the new Impreza :p)
I don't like the fact that it's a Mitsubishi
I don't like that they waited until after I've invested $24,000 in an WRX to release it (bloody bastards!)
