Oh no! The 17 WRX's sold each year in the UK are going bye bye! Everyone better rush out and snatch up the rest before they're all gone!


From http://www.topgear.com/uk/car-news/s...-uk-2012-12-17

"Don't forget, it was only a few months back that Subaru slashed the price on a WRX STI by a whopping six grand (though it appears to have crept back up to just under 33k now...), in a bid to pump some life into the ageing saloon."

Most successful car manufacturers don't need to slash the price of their cars by 6K in order to boost sales.


*Brilliant Sales Tactic*



I wouldn't be suprised to see the Legacy disappear from the UK either. Its competition for fuel efficient, safe, economical cars is far too stiff over there, and it simply isn't keeping up. The Outback, Forester, and BRZ are all fairly unique, but there's nothing unique about the Legacy.



From http://www.autoexpress.co.uk/subaru/...and-impreza-uk


"The spokesman said: “Currently we have no plans to bring in further [WRX STI] stock after the current stock sells out – which should takes us to early summer depending on demand.”
Instead, Subaru will focus its UK efforts on its XV, new Forester and Outback SUV models: “Subaru is concentrating on what it’s really good at – so we’re concentrating on SUVs and the BRZ – we’re hoping to get more [BRZs] next year to satisfy strong demand for that car.”
He added that he “could not confirm what happens to the Legacy after the end of 2013”.
