Does this mean my "pig nose" 2007 STi will be a collectors item? Kinda like the "bug-eye". I can see it now..."pig-nose love"

^interesting look. Has an acura-mazda-audi feel. Doubt it's real. Among other things, the emblem doesn't look like it fits correctly on that chrome grille strip - sloppy chop.

That thing in post #53 looks like a cross between a mazda and an z3 bmw.
It seems to have a short, stubby, fat look to it.
I can only hope it's nothing like the pic.

Ok, I observed post #9 and the spy photo and i am 100% sure that is what the new 2008 impreza is gonna look like. everything matches perfectly and everything fits correctly. The grill matches, rims, tailights, everything. observe it carefully and you'll see it. Post #9

My brain can't get past that horrid green color.

It reminds me of MINI's "Silk Green" when the car was first introduced -- The color was one of the available choices in the "build your own" part of the website that was as close as anyone could get to seeing or touching a real MINI for months after the unveiling.

Anyway, the green looked absolutely terrible on the website, and almost nobody pre-ordered it. It was so bad that MINI took it out of the color options as one of its first running changes to the new MINIs.

The irony is that in real life (as opposed to a computer monitor), Silk Green looks pretty good on a MINI, and the few that crossed the pond are now collectors' items.

lol.. all these cars look like they're from the exact same original picture. maybe subaru is having them deceive us somehow.

Give them a picture and tell them its going to be something like that, so every company changes it in their own way.

Rest assured it will look like a Subaru and will sell based on more than profile.

You are correct sir, you can see the columns in the background through the windows.

Hmmm...this might be closer than we realize.

Cheers,
