    The image does show a scoop, lower center of gravity, side skirts, decent wheels, decent front fascia. Somewhat sleek however nothing like the concept revealed earlier this year. Really hoping this is still a mule/test R&D model and hoping for the best from there design team.

    This is all I have for now to share.

    If that is the new wrx/STi then I'm sure glad I ordered a 14.

    Sadly, if Subaru is anything like other car companies, they will dance to the songs society plays. If they are losing money on their "offroad, rallycross" models, they will shift their focus to something that will make them the bigger dollars.

    However, the Impreza model has always sold very well, from what I understand. I don't know why they would change up the formula, other than maybe to make the car more budget friendly. The WRXs and STIs aren't exactly the cheapest cars out there.

    BTW, its amazing to me how they've been able to maintain their "niche" with the AWD and boxer engine thing. They've really not strayed from those two things that really make a Subaru different than alot of other cars. I'd have thought by now that alot of people would have written them off due to the differences, I mean ask anyone who has owned a mid-engine type car like the MR2, they're different but can be expensive to maintain/repair due to their unique nature. I suppose that is a large part of the draw for people too though, at the same time.

    I think the salient question is what will they do with the VX? It's the compact rugged hatch that could use a fiestier power plant. If they take that model into auto cross territory and bolt on some performance it could eat into WRX/STI hatch positioning.

    I find it an mystifying and intriguing marketing ploy to finally release official images of the new 2015 WRX on a random television show showcasing Subaru's new safety technology.

    Bravo, Subaru, no one saw that coming!

    Because it makes no sense at all. But that's the internet for you, grasping at any straw.

    As much as I love Fast Lane Daily, that was poor journalism. Reporting on rumors as if they are fact is pretty careless.

    Nothing about the 2015's has been confirmed by Subaru. Speculation is one thing but to say it is fact is not cool in my book.

    It's sad, I suppose...I'm really struggling to get interested in the new model. I like my rude and crude 2002, and the farther Subaru gets from that, refines, makes it look like everything else, etc, the harder the sell is, for me. Maybe I should go test drive a recent model, to renew my Subie-love!

    Not gonna lie Ray...I miss the raw-ness of my last STI. While I do like the refinement of the 2012 WRX...I miss the rattling flickable quickness of the STI. The newer one just isn't as nimble.

    "Rattling flickable quickness". Love it. That's a great description of the GD STI's.

    The new-generation Subaru WRX will reach Australia in less than six months’ time and be followed soon after by its hardcore WRX STI sibling.

    -Subaru Australia managing director Nick Senior confirmed the all-new fourth-generation WRX would land in local showrooms in March, around two months ahead of the flagship STI that’s due in the second quarter of 2014.

    The latest installment of the Japanese manufacturer’s iconic all-wheel-drive sports car is set to be a scaled-down version of the Subaru WRX concept that debuted at the New York auto show in March.
