i'm guessing it's close to the current STi with a WRC style wing on it to make it visually different from the new widebody WRXs. But maybe they're bringing back the STi sedan too.

We'll find out on Thursday.

I have no interest in any 08+ Subaru

They have no appeal anymore. They're unattractive, heavy, and underpowered compared to their contemporary.

The STI used to be in the same class as the Skyline GTR, but compare an 09 STI to an 09 R35. It's a joke.

Base model mustangs and Camaros have more power than Subaru's Flagship model. It's an embarrassment. We're back to the 80s, with subaru entering feeble underpowered novelty cars into the highly competitive sport sedan market.

Not really. It's still a very capable car BUT I do agree that it has been tamed since it's conception, despite being faster than the earlier cars. I just don't see a comparison to the GT-R being realistic. The EVO sure.

Read the headline in the link again, it doesn't say sedan. In the paragraph it mentions a smirk from an engineer when the word sedan was mentioned...but that that picture is definitely of a hatch and WRC-style wing.
