    Door bumpers! I've missed those. Could park closer to the door in parking lots now.

    The prototype running around Nurburgring is pretty close to the NY Auto Show prototype. The cameo does hide the lines pretty good.

    From Motor Authority:

    The reveal of the WRX concept car at the recent 2013 New York Auto Show showed a great deal of promise, though the overall design appears to have been neutered somewhat for the production model.

    Key elements borrowed from the concept include vertical fender vents, crescent-shaped tail-lamps and an aggressive rear diffuser. The tall rear wing was previously thought to signify the more extreme STI variant, though our latest intel tells us this is a prototype for the regular WRX.

    The new WRX, which should be revealed later this year as a 2014 model, is expected to be powered by a 2.0-liter boxer four-cylinder engine, although it’s unclear if a regular turbocharger will be used to boost power or more sophisticated means (such as an electrically-driven charger).

    The engine will be closely related to the unit in the BRZ, but will come with Subaru’s own direct-injection system. The regular BRZ engine borrows a direct-injection system from Toyota.

    Dropping down to a smaller 2.0-liter displacement from the current model’s 2.5 liters is advantageous for certain motorsport classes as well as being more fuel efficient. Power levels, however, won’t deviate much from current levels, though the performance of the car will be improved thanks to a lighter curb weight.

    This means the 2014 Subaru WRX should output around 265 horsepower while its eventual WRX STI variant should deliver as much as 305 horsepower. A symmetrical all-wheel-drive system will remain standard, as should the choice of sedan and hatchback bodystyles.

    Disagree with the mule being close to the concept. The headlights look a bit similar, in that they are more rectangular, but do look different nonetheless. The grill, front air dam, and hood look different. The fenders are not nearly as flared. The trunk deck is significantly shorter, while the front and rear overhangs are much longer than the concept. The back end in general is just much less rounded off than the concept.

    Looking closely to compare, I can see that there are styling cues that are present in both, but I think that they are some of the same design cues that are present in the current gen cars, and that the mule is closer to those than it is to the concept car. I also enjoy the article that you quoted making the brilliant deduction of power output numbers by...stating the current output.

    Ah well, we shall see when the camo comes off, but from what I can tell, it just doesn't look as rounded off and exciting as the concept. That's to be expected, unfortunately.

    We need a photo shop expert to color it for us to see what it really looks like.

    only problem is that they cover and change angles so much that changing the color would still not be that close. At first I thought the tails were like the concept, but it looks like they are just covered well

    For everyone that is hoping this car will be released as a 2014 model will be sadly disappointed. It will be release as a 2015 model so it won’t be out for another 14-16 months (WRX will be released first then the STI 6 months later, this is my guess). Also the 2014 model will be exactly the same as the current models.

    For all those who held out in 2013 for a new 2014 model I feel for you. I too struggle whether to wait or go ahead and buy a 2013 model. Having purchased a 2013 I have no reservations about my decision and been enjoying every mile. My first desire was a more powerful BRZ and that too may come about in the future, but I can't sit around waiting for the next best thing. Will spend many, many happy motoring miles in my 2013 WRX and when the next great thing does come out I can decide then if a change is really worth it.

    Even more disappointing to me is the failure to upgrade the drivetrain. They have the engine, it's sitting in the Forester XT for goodness sakes.
