Sure, we could to whip out our forked tongues and wag them at Motor Trend. After all, it looks like the mag could be engaging in some embargo breakage by strategically mailing advance copies of its May issue โ€” which features the new Subaru Impreza WRX โ€” to enthusiast thought-leaders. Maybe that's what they did here. Apparently, someone from the North American Subaru Impreza Owners Club was one of those who received a copy, and scanned some choice pages featuring the new five-door hatchie. But no details? Why no summary of specs? And what's with the teaser text, "If you want the specs, buy the May issue of Motor Trend"? Methinks there's collusion afoot.
