At New York International Auto Show, Subaru will unveil the 2008 Impreza SRX. It will be available on the US market later this year.

The 2008 Impreza WRX will feature a much improved interior, additional features and a new hatchback body style to go along with the standard sedan. The new Impreza is more spacious, higher-quality interiors powered by carryover engines hooked to four- and five-speed transmissions.

you do realize that this car is like 10 grand cheaper than a 350z or a 370z and the new 09 wrx which only costs like 25 grand with 265hp runs a 4.6 0-60 which is equivalent to the best tested 370z at 10 grand more expensive and the quatermile is only slightly slower...
