How Many Are Waiting on R-Spec?

title says it all, I just want to know how many more out there are like me waiting for the "legendary" R-Spec to arrive?

P.S You choose multiples if more than one apply.

I chose 1 & 3

Derek on the think tank says to expect the R spec late September/October.

i just told the subaru guy that wants to sell me a WRX that i'm waiting on a R-spec genesis coupe before i decide but right now the WRX would need a huge discount to come close to being worthy of consideration compared to the gen coupe.

I completely agree with you there.
both the ralliart lancer and wrx imprezza are priced to be competition with the 3.8 rather than the 2.0t.
If r-spec is the price point you are looking at, you won't be getting into a wrx thats for sure.

you're thinking of the WRX STI. the regular WRX isn't anywhere near the level of the evo or genesis v6.

The cars must be much cheaper down south. a Base 3.8 is 32,995
A 2.0T GT is 30,745, base 2.0t is 24,495
The base WRX is 32,495, fully loaded 5dr lists at 35,395
and a Ralliart is 32,998, or with the stereo and sunroof, add and extra 5k.

an STI will run you 39,995 and EVO's start at 39,998.
if your talking about 3.8GT, that'll run you 36,495.

Might want to double check that, the WRX beats the Gen V6 by a good 1/2 second in both 0-60 and 1/4 mile. It's actually faster in a straight line than the STi. This is the 2009 WRX of course.

im talking about price point and the car overall. if a car being faster in a straight line makes it better then there shouldn't be any members on this board.

pumcy - im comparing base WRX to 2.0t track or 2.0t rspec. invoice on the wrx is $24K, invoice for the gen 2.0t track is $25500. invoice on the rspec will probably be around $22500.

That sounds about right for invoice pricing, although I can assure you they will not be selling R-Specs at invoice for while.....Way too many people waiting on this car & demand will be high.
