    It's OK. The wing is embarrassing, hopefully it's an option (and an expensive one, to discourage fitment). The wheels look better than other shots I'd seen. The nose is a bit generic-Japanese but that's fine. Not a bad looking little car at all.

    I'm with you on that. I was hoping that it was merely a concept car thing, to attract the Paul Walker element, and would not be a standard item on the final model. The older I get, the stupider rear wings look to me.

    This car is about driver finesse and skill. It doesn't have to have oodles of power to be a great street-driven car.

    It seems like a lot of people are reacting with "ZOMG it doesn't have 705 and 1/2 horsepower?!?!1?" Fine. Perhaps it isn't the car suited for your ricer flybys, but that's not to say it won't be a great little car.

    I'd like it more with the 11+ STI sedan wing, rather than that park bench.

    I like the pictures but I'm sure it looks amazing in person. Very disappointing that it's not turbocharged.

    The manager at my dealership said Toyotas contract wouldn't let them make it turbo or awd. But that in '14 or '15 there would be a turbo model, and optionally awd. Own how much of that is insider info or just speculations.

    And the new WRX's will be redesigned to be more powerful, and to meet whatever standards they aren't now for wrc.

    I would be more interested in what happens with the wrx and sti. 3000lbs with 350hp would be very nice!

    I'm sorry but the manager cannot possibly know what he claims to know.He can only speculate like the rest of us.

    This means two large, JP-based multinational firms collaborated on an all-new small coupe and used their substantial resources to develop it, and before it's available for sale to anyone they first notified a manager of a car dealership in MI, USA about their plans for that new car, and the plans for an existing successful model, and their motorsports aspirations.

    Well played sir

    There are some days that I walk out and look at my car and wonder...wtf is this wing doing on an Impreza...but other days; I love it. It's awesome.

    I'm not a huge fan of the 11+ STI wing. I think it looks a lot more like a current Evo or Cobalt SS wing than its own thing. The new gen STI Sedans look BALLER with just a trunk lip though. That should be a factory option.
