    Is Mazda do indeed make this car its going to me fucking sweet, it will be direct competition for the WRX, something it dosn't really have right now. Knowing Mazda though probibly not much wil be able to be done in the boost tweaking deparment because of the weak ass internals, but throw a nice turbo back on there for some more ponies, along wiht some Volks, SSR or other nice wheels. The car in the pic is fitted with an aftermarket kit and rims i beleive. None the less, still a sweet car though.

    By early 2005, performance junkies can expect a turbocharged Mazdaspeed 3 sports compact that should pump out at least 200 horsepower (or up to 240, if Mazda decides to offer an all-wheel-drive version). The hotted-up 3 should be followed by Mazdaspeed's take on the mid-size 6.

    Nice concept and all, but too bad they just photoshopped the original 3 and don't have any actual concept photos.

    Behold the originals:

    240 mazda hp, so its really like 150hp j/k :D, they seem to over rate their cars hp wise...but it would not make sence for them to make the 3 with more power then the rx8... for sure..

    :rolleyes: The Evo would work the base WRX anyways, the WRX STi would be in competition with the Evo.
