The photos from SubieSports are not bad, they just show a different line. I think the car is finally looking it's part in the Subaru line up. It is suppose to be a small/mid size SUV, to me it has always looked like a plump wagon, that said, it didn't looked bad, it just didn't look like a SUV. I have many friends who have told me that the reason that they didn't buy a Forester was because they didn't want a wagon, I think that they would buy this version. I would think that Japan would know by now that the USA wants STi versions of every model Subaru builds, I'm sure a Sti Forester would sell great here, as would a STi Legacy. This is the Forester we've needed here in the Northwest, I think that they have a winner here. Now if there would only bring back a decent coupe, maybe a limited edition STi Coupe. The line would form behind me.
