If Subaru changed to the hatch design to compete in WRC then they get a big FAIL, since Subaru dropped out of WRC as of this fall.
They dropped out because FIA has become extremely lame as of late. The new WRC rules state that FIA will give you an engine/tranny/gearbox/all major parts of a car and the manufacturer has to tweak those however they want. Same rules still apply in the 300 hp and 2.0L engines, but eliminating the other parts just makes a lot of engineers obsolete. They also dropped out because of the economy. Prodrive asks for a lot!
