Looks nice, but not at all distinct. Reminds me of a G35 mixed with a Chrysler Crossfire.

Here is the article: http://www.autoexpress.co.uk/?news/a...y.php?id=34670

Isn't that the B11s concept that was being talked about in News & Rumors? I thought that was a concept model, not a next generation of anything... I could be wrong though

Subaru, please hire some sytlists. A few million to a good design studio would make a world of difference.
I love your cars but the designs in the last few years are awful.

They did, and this is what he came up with. Can't tell that he was a designer for Alfa Romeo, can you?

Yeah there is jsut a slight Alfa family resemblance, the fron end isn;t too bad but the rear is wayyy to busy, there is no continuity of line, the greenhouse is almost exactly the same shape as the G35 coupe. But that's jsut my opinion, that said it's kind coll in a nouveau SVX knd of way, it's just take the SVX's window busyness and moved it rearward.

A new chief designer, Andreas Zapatinas, who previously worked for BMW and Alfa Romeo, to add style to a new generation of Subarus.
from the USA Today article about a week ago
http://www.usatoday.com/money/autos/...6-subaru_x.htm

Notice the Z4 mirrors and the Alfa Romeo nosecone! I would expect to see more of this in Subaru's upcoming redesigns. I'm still undecided if this is a good or bad thing!

The side profile looks cool, but it's obviously borrowed designs, and the front end is hideous. Subaru needs new designers... what ever happened to the creator of the GC8?

Except that this design was penned before Subaru hired Zapatinas.

That makes much more sense... it's about time for a sports-car Subaru again!
