Bahhahaaaaaaa. I guess the STi will have some competition from GM or Saab with there AWD unit.

Confirming recent rumors, Saab Automobil is confirming plans to introduce a sporty small car it will designate the 9-2. The hatchback will be based on the Subaru WRX and will feature all-wheel-drive and offer a pair of powertrains: both a normally-aspirated 2.5-liter engine and a turbocharged 2.0-liter four likely to produce somewhere in the vicinity of 300 hp. Look for an introduction "just over a year" from now, said Saab CEO Peter Augustsson, who said he expects to sell about 7000 to 8000 of the sporty cars annually. The pairing might seem surprising, but both Saab and Subaru parent Fuji Heavy Industries are part of General Motors' so-called global alliance. "This is a great example of GM's partners working together, said the U.S. automaker's vice chairman, Bob Lutz. The 9-2 could be critical for the long-struggling Saab, but it is likely to be only the first in a series of new products designed to invigorate demand, according to Augustsson, who acknowledged to TheCarConnection that a sport-utility vehicle is also in the cards. -Paul Eisenstein
