More STIs in the USA? Subaru Considers Performance Versions of Forester, Legacy

With Subaru giving SEMA attendees an eyeful of what a Forester STI might look like, we're curious. Is the company just teasing, or are they planning something similar for production? Brace yourselves, Scoobieheads; according to AutoWeek it's the latter. AW reports Subaru is considering STI versions of both the Forester and Legacy models. The company's vice president of product planning, Tomohiro Ishitobi, revealed that brass feels the market is ready for more performance-oriented cars, and that a Legacy STI is on their "wish list." We know about a hundred score of Jalopnik readers who'd take out a second mortgage on their scrotal region to get their hands on something like that. Wish list? Nihon, please.
