Directly from the horses mouth:
Hopefully they actually count and consider the emails they get about the STI.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Thank you for visiting Subaru.com and for your interest in our products!

Subaru is only considering the feasibility of an STi version of the WRX for future model years. We do not have any definite plans at this time. If an STi version of the WRX becomes available in the United States, it would probably not be for a couple of model years. Since we have only recently introduced the WRX to the US consumers, it is too early to confirm the likelihood of offering an STi version in the US.

Even though magazine articles have stated that the STi version is coming to the US, the decision to bring the STi here has not been officially established yet. The magazines were a little premature with their 'announcement.' It was based on our statement at a press event that if the WRX is well received by the US buying public, we would look at possibly marketing a US version of the STi.

We appreciate that you took the time to contact us. I will forward your suggestion to offer an STi version of the WRX in the U.S. to our Product Planning Department for their review and consideration. In the meantime, keep your eye on the 'News' and 'Press Release' sections of our Web site for the latest updates!

Best wishes,
Sandi Parente-Geiges

Three points to consider:

1) That's the same form letter email they have been sending now since the introduction of the WRX.

2) They do actually forward these on to the "Product Planning Department", so it is good to still send email to them about the STi.

3) The people answering the emails at SOA are more in the dark about the STi than we are on the "outside". The Impreza enthusiast community knew the WRX was coming, even had model codes and other stuff, and at that point the people answering the emails still responded they didn't know when the WRX was coming. They will only change their tune when they are told, and that usually is when it will be publicly officially released. So these people are giving the best information that they can at this point. :smile:

SOA is not going to say anything different in a email about the STi till the day it is officially released, bottom line. :smile:

Still send them though...
