Can't believe they destroyed a nice car to create this. And the price tag is not pretty either.



from the article:
Let us caveat this piece by admitting we’re not sure if the whole thing is a joke. But the pictures look pretty real to us, and if what’s being shown here isn’t a hoax then what you’re looking at is a Subaru Impreza STI Convertible. Please take a moment to calm down before continuing. A ‘4 season, 4 door convertible’ is a neat description of this open-top Subie, which is apparently available at Manchester Subaru in New Hampshire.

6 pictures and full article

I don't think it looks too terrible, but the price is pretty ridiculous.

I suppose some collector will snap it up. Getting replacement parts for the custom bits if things wear out would be tough. IMHO, I just can't wrap my head around any 4 door convertible, but that is just me. Biggest thing though is how much was done to compensate for the flex that body will now have. Might handle like a turd? I doubt that roll bar would be enough to replace the roof in that regard. Interesting though.

Yeah, I'll take the 'Stang.

Unfortunately this was not a joke. Guy that bought it (or maybe just drives it around for the dealer because I cannot imagine someone buying it) is seen driving around northern MA. They did a completely shoddy job on tying the top in with the body. That poor, poor STI.
