STi was coming out spring 2002! Course this guy also said the EVO would be out about the same time. Doh!

Anyone remember reading Auto Week stating spring 2002? Only thing I could find stated 2003.

Plan on Spring 03. I think that's what he may have meant- but just screwed up on the date.

If it was really coming out this spring, believe me- all of you would know about it. I would make sure of that- I am trying to be the very best source of reliable info on the STi...

His reply...

>The only Auto Week article I could find on their http://www.autoweek.com states "We
>'re told the beefed-up STi will come to the States in 2003 as a 2004 model,
>most likely with all the hardware available in the European model. "

AutoWeek updates weekly, the website is for people who don't actually
buy the magazine. It's out of date.

Yes the print version, I have listed the issue number and the page
number. My scanner is broken so I can't help you there.
I must have forgotten to post where the article is
It's the January 7, 2002 issue. Page 4, 3rd column.
Car & Driver and Motor Trend are really good with their articles but
have a 3-4 month lead time. AutoWeek updates weekly, but they are
more more industry updates/info than actual entertainment like the
other 2 mags have.
If you really want to find out what's going on at the auto show right
now get AutoWeek or read blurbs in C&D or M/T a couple of months
later.
For $19.95 it's well worth the money for the subscription. 52 Issues a
year!

I have that issue. I also have one from a few weeks before that basically said the same thing... Spring 2003 as a 2004 model.

I don't know where the spring 2002 came from, other than a typo.
