Question New STi and the R34 GT-R

Does anyone else notice a bit of a similarity between the exterior looks of the new STi and the R34 Skyline?

there are a few similarities i see, 1.angle thatthe lights make when they are coming towards the front qrt. panel. 2. the widebody looks similar in the front. 3. the grille opening looks the similar...the general design that is...two openings that have the same width, and the top being smaller vertically and bottom being larger vertically. 4. the mirrors look very simila Conclusion: I think the similarities are just a styling trend of this period...no copying of styles or same body parts...just the period...i just read this and i think i got a little too in too this , oh well

Not really. I guess they are both white............. the STI has a hood scoop; skyline no; 4 doors; 2 doors. They both have a rear spoiler and have 4 tires. I can see the similarities. 2002 WRX kinda looks like the Ford Taurus with those rounds lights too....... I'm just kidding. I can see the front and back end similarities.......
