I know it's still just the concept, but... I hope they make it less "Hot Wheels" looking... >.>.

"Isn't it amazing how smart you feel when you just aren't being stupid?"
I'm a huge fan of the concept. Yes, it's fairly derivative of other models (a BMW M3 bears the closest resemblance to my eyes), but I still think it looks great. I'd buy one.
We'll see what it actually ends up looking like in the end, and like Ray, I'm very curious about what changes they'll be making to the interior, but this new model has a very high likelihood of being my next car. I might even pre-order one.
I don't like the concept styling at all, particularly the front headlights and the entire rear end.
Interesting article with the Subaru General Product Planning Manager. While Subaru remains as tight-lipped as ever on future car specifics, you get a sense of how excited Subaru engineers are about the cars they make. the story about the STI outrunning a tunnel collapse is pretty intense as well.

I really like the styling and if they can bring most of those modern, gorgeous lines into the production version, they'll have a real seller. Pretty cool to see that Subaru is very aware of their enthusiast population and is somewhat catering to our needs, in a way.

I love the front/rear look.... the profile I'm having trouble with - looks like an Altima to me with a hair more aggressive front/rear (again profile view only).
Again, front view/back awesome - profile....
I'd love for someone to "unconcept" it. (Bump it up to what will be typical WRX ride height, put normal door handles on, normal 17-18" wheels and headlights that would make it to a typical $25K car, etc.)
All that said, there is potential here for a nice-looking car. We'll just have to wait and see.
