Update: False Alarm. Thanks to Paul for pointing out that our friends at NASOIC had got it wrong. -------------------------- Our friends at the North American Subaru Impreza Owners Club (NASIOC), have spotted this mule being tested in the US. The photographer said I tried to follow it for as long as I can but the driver was getting annoyed and sped away...

Subaru Impreza WRX ... Diesel? CVT?
