Default Is this a fake wrx

Working in Albany today, I stop to grab some pizza to fill the hole in my stomach. I'm sitting down eating, I notice this car with a hood scoop. I get a closer look a few times. It looks like a normal impreza to me tho. Why would someone go through all that trouble to get a wrx hood scoop? Also it didn't have a subaru oval badge or wrx badge on the grill. It had an aftermarket grill in fact.
The wrx badge on the back and all, but something just doesn't look rite. The side skirt flares or lack thereof, the rear diffuser is way off as well.
I'm sitting in my '10 wrx and they look like 2 totally different cars. Am I way off on this one?

Picture to follow in a sec

If you can post with your phone you can upload pics from the phone. Kills me when people say they can't do something because they are on the phone/app.

It's real. You just finally discovered you've been driving a fake all this time.

I mean that's obviously my first thought. Guess I prolly should have looked inside. I didn't realize that the body styles change that much in the same generation.

that settles it; must be a fake. real WRXs are all hatchbacks or wagons.
