1. Saab meets WRX

    Saab announces its new small and sporty 9-2 model, based on Subaru's legendary WRX.

    Anyone who knows me, knows why I'm posting this. My favorite all-time mark is Svenska Aeroplan Aktiebologat, or SAAB for short. My favorite all-time car model however is the rallye-bred Subaru WRX. Now since GM wholly owns Saab and partially owns Subaru (they own 20% of Fuji Heavy Industries, Subaru's parent company), cool mixtures of cars that were meant to be (both Saab and Subaru share a lot of innovative ideas, and a rich rallye racing heritage) can now come to light.

    In turbo and AWD, we trust.

    So when's the electric hybrid motor going to become available in this model? ;-)

      I was JUST about to get a 2004 WRX, too…

      I wonder if the 9-2 will encroach on the WRX STi’s territory? I know one is “entry luxury” and the other is “rally like hell” but… they’ll probably be in very close price AND market segment ranges.
