5th Gen production numbers.
 
So, I emailed Subaru the other day and asked for the production numbers for the 5th Gen LGT, this was the response

I received our estimates for you:
2010MY 1400
2011MY 300
2012MY 200

Wow, was that just USDM? What a drop off to 2012!!!

Who exactly did you contact? I contacted SOA a few months ago with this same question and they sent me this rather generic type "blow me off" email that said they didn't keep model specific numbers, only total MY for the Legacy overall. Didn't even send me a number.

I just went to Subaru.com and went to the contact section and sent them an email. Kelly Shinault
Subaru of America, Inc. is who got back to me.

So 1900 total. No wonder we all know each other on the forum. No wonder why they stopped making them. It sucks but that's one of the reasons I love my car. The only other one I've seen is a member on here when we met for lunch. It's sad that taking the gt away suddenly makes them desirable. Reminds me of the supra. They only became valuable after they stopped making them.

Yeah explains the lack of aftermarket

Jace2010LGT 10-10-2012 08:31 PM

Lucky to have any aftermarket with those numbers.

If that's correct then wow.

I still see them quite often now. I would say I've seen about 6 different ones around Rochester. Most of them are women in their 50's driving them though. That is besides Rutchard and HERB5T.

I had to go to Bill Rapp in Syracuse NY to get mine, It seemed that he always kept one on the lot. I only found 6 on the east coast when I was looking.

Yeah mine just happened to be on the lot at Van Bortel here in town. I think it was a car someone ordered and decided not to buy.

If that estimates are correct, it makes sense why Subaru discontinued the LGT. It also isn't too promising for Subaru to make future turbo legacy models.

eckseleven 10-11-2012 09:14 AM

Maybe subaru intended to discontinue and gradually reduced production.

dr_sharp 10-11-2012 09:17 AM

If these numbers are correct, I hope we don't start seeing 5th gen owners list their production number like 06spec.b owners.

eckseleven 10-11-2012 09:25 AM

^Now time to find out which one of 200 mine is..... ;)

CL21376 10-11-2012 09:45 AM

That seems about right. Didn't Subaru say that like 90% of 5th gens were 2.5/CVT at some point?

I've never seen another 5th gen GT.
