From the "let's tease the US" department comes Subaru's worked-over Forester STi, a Japan-only model currently. While the company hasn't announced plans to bring the sport wagon to the states, a rumor that Subaru is ready to relent continues to get passed around like a funny cigarette. Now, with new super-sport wagons from rally rival Mitsubishi and Saab on the way, the time could be right for the 265hp, U.S.-spec 2.5-liter turbocharged H4 boxer powered Forester to break cover in the US. Anyone?
