>>>>>>>Bogus!

That is actually a marketing campaign by Subaru!! The 2011 Mediocrity -- a bogus new car at the center of a mysterious stealth marketing campaign.

The actual thing is this: Not so mediocre
The 2011 Subaru Legacy.

The Mediocrity campaign began when mysterious spy shots landed at websites. The car alone was ridiculous enough to tip off to the fact that this was likely a marketing campaign. But Subaru wasn't done: a fake PR agent soon began sending out news about the Mediocrity. Apart from the quirky emails themselves, the agent was using a Gmail address, which raised a few more eyebrows.
Afterward came the near-simultaneous launch of the Mediocrity Twitter account, Facebook page, and microsite.
