I was more impressed by the original. Is it me? Maybe this one just needs to grow on me. It's nice, don't get me wrong. I just like the first version better - and I'm not usual like that...

No, seriously.

It looks like the current R8 had a bit too much to eat and is now the R9.

It looks obese. Current shape just bigger and disproportionate. Not an evolution at all.

I think it ate a Subaru - :histeric:

I could take you Outback for a test drive, you know.

I'm sure it would leave a lasting Legacy.

Harr! Harr! Harr! That Roo is such a talented fellow! But I hear that his Legacy is pretty thin in the Outback.

Well I guess I'm not the only one, then. Something just doesn't look right. I bet a refresh comes quickly on this one...
same issue I had with the previous generation. Looks too much like the TT, which is about as awkward as it gets, imo.

Table or cheese?
cheese. The R8 probably wouldn't make a good taxi, would it, Jim?

Really though, the whole Subaru lineup is guaranteed to Impreza. Just let me know when you're ready.

I'm with you, Roo! I love the SVX ..... almost bought one back in the mid nineties. Amazing car, but a shame that the service on them was poor. I had a couple of friends who owned them, they were real car connoisseurs, and they really loved their SVX's. To me the SVX was the most interesting car of the nineties.

Oh for sure. I almost bought one before I picked up the wagon, but then I learned the one I was looking at was FWD, not AWD. I thought they were all AWD at the time.

I still want one with a WRX 5-speed swap. Would be big fun.
