    It probably won't look anything like that in the end.

    Ugly. Does look like an uglier version of the magnum.

    The funny thing about concept cars is that they rarely bear any resemblance to the actual production vehicle.

    To the OP: you do realize some art student in Motor Trend just made up that drawing of the orange blob, right?

    As for the real-life concept car they showed photos of, the wheels will not be that big, the grill will not be that large, the ride will not be that low, etc, etc. in the end, other than the platform change, it won't look too dramatically different than it does now.

    Yeah, the concepts look ridiculous purely for the fact that they want to draw attention to it.

    I think it looks completely bad ass. I'd drive it. Yes I know the actual will look little like the concept.
    I do find it a little amusing how invariably as model styling/changes happen the more zealous previous gen owners tend to always hate on the new. History will repeat itself no doubt.

    I'd drive it! I would also go as far to say I'd love a dual clutch auto with paddle shifter option simply for the quick shifting that modern day DSG-type shifters provide. *waiting for elitist manual only backlash*

    And here it is...manual is the only fun way to go. How often while driving do you need to have "Faster than human ability" shifting? You're not racing every day! Taking away from a full manual takes away from full control and fun of the car! I think it's elitist to want the "quickest shifting possible" or something like that.

    But again, it's only my opinion. Not backlashing. If you prefer and like the twin clutch paddle designs, then that's awesome for you. I'll keep my 6 in the console

    I'm right there with you. Given the choice between the current WRX 5-speed manual and say a 6 or 7 speed DSG, I'd probably go DSG, depending on the price difference. That said, I'm still picking a full manual over the option of a "manu-matic" type automatic gearbox with gear selectors, like what the BRZ offers. If the WRX finally gets a 6-speed manual, my choice would be much fuzzier.

    A true DSG would be great though. I could bang through the gears faster than I can shift already when the roads are clear, and my leg wouldn't cramp up in stop and go traffic. I'm a big fan of paddle shifters, but only when they change gears faster than I could myself with a stick.

    Well considering I drive the 4EAT...a paddle shift dual-clutch auto would be a HUGE improvement for me. I sit in way too much horrible traffic for a manual...wouldn't be any fun at all. It seems to me it's easier to tune the low-end torque on the auto trans too...which I like. That's the consensus with the local subie people I'm finding.

    If you look at the plate in the pics.. it says "advanced tourer concept" ...


    doesn't sound the least bit wrx or sti'ish to me. Nor does that "think" look the least bit wrx or sti'ish. At least.. to me it doesn't.

    Seeing that recently subaru has decided to part the impreza lines and wrx/sti variations to take different design and marketing paths (effectively turning the STI and WRX into specific models and platforms vs variations/packages on a impreza base) I dont think the new varieties of either will have any similarity to the impreza .. but I doubt they'll look like that abomination.
