They used EA71 engines in EA82 bodies in some places outside North America.
There actually WAS a turbo hatch. They're just incredibly rare.

There was also one that someone drove to the parts store I used to work at once.

They can be faked VERY easy since the entire front end of a hatch is the same as the front end of a Turbo Wagon, and all parts will bolt right up.
And on the EA81T - it was only mated to Auto's because it was a new technology, and Subaru could better control how the engine would be run in the hands of the consumer with the auto. They didn't want their name on something that turned out not to be able to handle the punishment of a clutch driven car.
