that's a different article than I have seen for once, lol. But I don't think those numbers add up. While I hope it is awd and 300+hp/tq I do not see that going for anything less than 30k and realistically 35k. Just look at the wrx. 260hp/tq, AWD and those are selling for 30k plus. The basic wrx is so hard to come by because dealers are ordering nothing but limited with 5k worth of accessories.

I think the original draw to the speed3's was the performance to cost ratio. If they up the performance and price it will make them harder to sell.

It's a shame though as I will need a new car by August.
