I've been wondering the same thing myself. I just checked out a nice Imprezza DVD which featured the coupe in the WRC. It looks SO much better than the sedan. In fact, it reminds me of a cross between a tank and a Porsche. It had me thinking, "That's the car I want!".
The closest Scooby has come to it is the 22b, and they made only 400 of those. IMO, Scooby has ditched the coupe because they couldn't afford to produce both and the performance was nearly equal. I think they are now paying for that unforunate decision with the sales slump of the WRX in Japan. Maybe they will understand that while the performance is critical,
the appearance and image are pretty high on the desirability list as well.

Yes, Porsche makes an SUV and most people don't like it or the idea, but car companies don't go out of business for making more money. I doubt an SUV is going to hurt Porsche's image with its new car (coupe) buyers (ie significantly reduce sales), and I am pretty sure it isn't going to hurt their wallet either.Rufus3383 said:Quote:Besides if Porsche made a 4 door that looked as good as their coupes (if possible) would you not say hey 4-doors is better than 2?
Heaven forbid! Next we'll be talking about Porsche doing an SUV
of all things!
