funny.

Default Would you buy the next gen STi if it looked like this?

Found this on "News & Rumors"

I frikkin' LOVE it. It looks like a peugeot, a focus, and an impreza all rolled into one.

What are your thoughts?

That front has the Alfa Romeo kinda ugly. Every car has a certain grill. The rest of it looks good.

No, the first 8 are pictures of what the next impreza may look similar to. They're from some upcoming video game(IIRC it's WRC 3). The last two pics are of the B11S concept Subaru showed a year or two ago from that same game.

I guess the previous version of the video game(WRC 2?) had a concept Impreza as well that ended up looking about dead on what the current facelifted Impreza looks like. So since they were so accurate with that last game, the new version coming out with these models in the game have people wondering.

Only if they off-set the ugliness with some ridiculous horsepower.

The grill looks like a Peugot 206/Alfa Romeo ripoff; what's with the holes under the headlights? They're cheesy too. The fenders are all wrong...no more blisters? Going to arch-flares? Boo. The tails look okay to me, and so do the headlights themselves. The wing just looks...wrong, somehow. Not due to size, but more to shape. It just looks dumb. Maybe Subaru is trying to make the Impreza less appealing, so Americans will buy into the new turbo Legacy instead...maybe? Why are they changing chassis so fast? The GC8 was around for 8yrs, so shouldn't the GDA/GDB be around for atleast a couple more years?

Well, the GC body took on different shapes throughout it's 8 year or so run. Mostly just a lower grille change, but still. As many people will say, the GC body style is "everlasting" in it's coolness. There are a lot of haters of the new and newer body styles. I think subaru should take the GC style, and expand on it. Although I do really really like this new design.

They just need to keep the wing like the STi, 22b, WRC style that has been around.
