Exclamation What the 08 STi should have looked like

Havent seen it, but this is probably a NASIOC repost, but i'd like to share it with AKIC. I haven't seen this rendering yet. I found this through a thread on forester forums. I'll tell you right now, that if this was the final prototype, i would be parting out and selling the forester.

2 door coupe needs to come back!

Concepts always have sharp lines and large wheels. It all smoothens and evens out in the end.

The front I don't see ever happening. The back...maybe for the WRC but that's about it.

seems to be a consensus. Mavrik, you lose.

Save your money, maybe the 2010 version will look like this. Maybe we can influence SOA.

just cause I'm out numbered, doesn't mean I'm wrong or that you guys are. Its a matter of opinion and when I see that, I just don't like it. I'm still not fond of the hatch but am waiting for them to arrive so I can maybe change my opinion.

I like it(the concept). The new WRX should have been closer to this. IMO if you put the new WRX next to the new Evo X, the Evo just looks way better... I'm not sure what SOA was thinking.

well, i'm still not a huge fan of the pignose 07 look that sits in our garage, so guess he'll have to get used to the hatch look once one of those also sits in the garage. it grows on you ....

According to SOA the STi will be the hatch/wagon. The sedan Impreza will only be sold in USA. So, no STi in sedan form. Nice pic though. A little to extreme for consumer consumption.

your way off Mike. I could care less if everyone had a different opinion then I do about that car. I still don't like it. Your reading way to much into my comments. But then again, tone and expression can not be seen or heard through text.

And to keep this topic in light discussion. here is a smiley

I don't hate it, but it's definitely not my style. It looks very 'mean' and that's the cool part about it. but like i said, it's not my style so I wouldn't be in to it. so that means more for you guys!

yeah, before it loaded, I was all doubting that this would look cool, but then My jaw hit the floor and I was like F*ck YAH! other than those silly gaps at the tailights, and lack of ground clearance, that car needs to be made by somebody somewhere. Oh I know, that guy, that makes wrc replicas... HE could do it.

The overall shape is cool, but the front bumper, scoop, and general lines on the front end are a little much.

Too much "futuristic rice". Smooth out some of the lines and such, kind of a middle ground between this and the new Impreza/wrx, and it think it'd work.
