Here’s another cool special edition Subaru Forester that will not be offered on the US market! It’s called the Forester tS and will come with lots of STI components and upgrades that offer an improved driving dynamic. It will be limited to only 300 units and deliveries in Japan will begin in 2011.

The new Forester tS is powered by a 2.5-liter turbocharged boxer 4-cylinder with 263 HP and 347 NM of torque. The engine will be mated to a new 5-speed automatic transmission. This special edition will hit a top speed of 150 mph.

It will be distinguished by STI suspensions with sport springs and shock absorbers, STi seats, aluminum pedals, steering wheel with paddle shifters, and a big red push-button ignition. The new edition will be offered in only four exterior colors: Obsidian Black, Pearl White, Stylish Silver, and WR Blue Mica.

Why do all of the good cars stay outside of the U.S.? Hey automakers, we would like to drive cool cars too!

I have to agree with Dave Barney. It maybe doesn’t look very attractive, but I would still prefer to have this one for it looks so reliable on the road and practical to use for everyday transportation.

Well, it looks like a regular Subaru, and I think there’s no reason why we should love or hate this car. However, I’m hoping for cooler design and style.

It looks a lot bigger in pictures than it is in real life. In person it’s smaller than the RAV4 and Santa Fe

My wife has that model, 2007-2008, and I would love to have an STI version or it.
