Well, that just sucks. A gorgeous concept, to be sure, which means that the production version will be a major visual let down.

I have faith that it won't stray far from the concept... Sure the wheels will be toned down and the bulges may shrink a bit but I'm hoping Subie learned a lesson when they watered down the current Impreza.
A good sign is the BRZ, came out pretty close to the concept.

I wouldn't mind the wheels being toned down, but I don't see where the body panels need even one iota of tweaking. Slap a VIN on that sucker and call 'er done!
Reminder: The BRZ was a Toyota-led production, and they're pretty good and telegraphing concept to actual.
Of course, the real question is... What will the hatch look like?!

Looks great! I agree, wheels need to go, and yellow calipers, too. That is so yesterday.

Well, all I can say is that if I were to choose between that and a BRZ, factoring in cost, I would go for the STi without hesitation.

Brake discs are as big as the rims on my van.
Change the side mirrors and build that sucker!
