Anybody see this from the 2013 atuo show?



I gotta say, I like what they did there. I've always felt that, between Mitsubishi and Subaru, the Sti was by far the best performing and better built of the two, but I never felt it compared to an Evo VIII in the looks department. That concept's a work of art though.

Saw it at the NYIAS.  I quite like it, but I'm expecting much will be changed / subtlized for the production version.

Now they just need to keep the aggressive look with the wide fenders. The concepts always look great, but then the production model loses so much of the aggressiveness. It was such a disappointment with the frs.

I thought they did a pretty good job of retaining the concepts aggression with the FRS.

I'll just leave this here-

When this 



went to this,



I felt like everything just got smoothed out and brought in. The wheels on the concept and how deep the concave is, made me love the look. Unfortunately, scion gave us another crappy offset. I would still love to have the car.

Yeah, I'd love to get one as a daily driver. Finally gave the US an affordable 2 door track car alternative to the Miata and used S2000's.

BB-I think the 2012 WRX hatch is my favorite body style. There are a few around here in black that I really dig.

Yeah, I was a fan of the hatch redesign, mainly because it was a fun sort of homage to the days when rally was dominated by the delta integrale.

I was going to say the same thing....


22b STi was the best body out there. The second was the "bug eye" Impreza.
