This drawing was done before the world learned Subaru was doing away with the airplane grille, but the overall profile doesn't look too far off of the spyshots.

With spy pics floating around, I don't understand why the Mag photoshoppers continue going in the opposite direction

funny, when I saw this post the first thing I thought was you were referring to the big cover pic ... until I saw the toyota badge. that toyota front end looks a lot like the B9 snout, incorporates the "aerospace heritage" real well but way more aggressive.

He was referring to the Toyota nose looking like the Impreza could have, if Subaru had stuck with the pig nose. He's just saying Toyota is taking over the pig-nose look with the concept car shown.

actually, I have seen the magazine. I already saw this on the newsstand. I was going to post, but I knew you guys would TTIWWOP me, so I just stood silently.

Actually, there is a much better pic of it inside the mag, and if you look closely, it is DIRECTLY BASED on the spy pictures, or rather, the general shape looks EXACTLY LIKE them.

So, yeah, aside from the grill, which is always wrong on prelim. sketches, I think this is the next WRX. it looks like the GC a lot.

I gotta take the pic on my cell phone, ghetto, but I don't want to jeopardize the great relationship I have with my 24 hour alchohol stop.

But yeah, if you look closely, it's almost as if (if this sketch is new and not "old") they took the spy photos and made a sketch directly offa them.

be riiiight back. If I don't post till later tonight, it's cause work called me in. BUSY day today! I barely have had time to take a nice dump (which I ran home for.)

Okay folks, here it is:


i'd say it looks a lot like the spyshot.

That's from them. Compare with the spyshots and decide for yourself. They say its about 85% of what it will look like?

Not bad, if it's a usable hatch (the one thing I and really held up with on the current STi) and maintains with 1k of the current STi's price tag I'll put down my deposit today.

You think they will still make a wagon, or are they only gonna have a hatch?
