Subaru has announced that it will be at the 2010 Detroit auto show Jan 11-13, with an unknown concept car.

What could it be- there are many possibilies and little hard info.

My thoughts are:

1. an updated 2009 STI with more power or features which would explain the recent fire sale on the 08 STIs,

2. or the long long anticipated diesel,

3. or a preview of the 2010 Outback, the Exiga that's already available in Japan?

4. or a rendering of the joint Subaru-Toyota sport coupe, the so-called Toyobaru,

5. or a US version of the Diahatsu subcompact being built for Japan,

5. or a Stella or R1e electric car for the US market,

6. or the just announced Subaru bicycle, the Subaru XB, with a 27-speed derailleur and chromium-molybdenum alloy frame?

So many choices... any comments or thoughts?

12/17/08 It's official- the concept car at the Detroit auto show will be a preview of the 2010 Legacy. As expected, it seems like the end for the 3.0L engine
Here's the press release.

'SoA today announced that the Subaru LEGACY CONCEPT will debut at the 2009 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit January 11th. The NAIAS is open to the public January 17 through 25, 2009. Celebrating 20 years of the Legacy sedan, the LEGACY CONCEPT showcases the direction of future Legacy sedan design. The exterior highlights the sportiness and dynamism befitting a car powered by a 3.6L horizontally Opposed Boxer engine. A distinctive front fascia and flared wheel arches establish a powerful road presence and hint at the exceptional handling promised by the Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system and low center of gravity. The interior embodies modern, high-tech architecture while delivering a comfortable environment for occupants. The Subaru Legacy series was first introduced in 1989 and next year it will celebrate its 20th anniversary of the start of production. Manufactured in Gunma, Japan and Lafayette, Indiana USA, global production has exceeded 3.6 million units.* The United States accounts for 43% of the production volume. The model has been highly acclaimed as a core product of Subaru in the world due to its excellent driving performance, strong safety record and dependability provided by Subaru’s renowned Symmetrical AWD system with Horizontally- Opposed engines.'
