    Default 2012 Subaru WRX STI Rendering: Who's Ugly Now EVO?



    There are a lot of rumors surrounding the next Subaru Impreza WRX STI, with some reports suggesting it will go diesel, while others point to a hybrid version. And while we donít yet know what the decided powerplant will be, we can guarantee it will include AWD, go like stink and look awesome!

    OK, so we donít know that last one either, but thanks to the creative genius of artist Jon Sibal we can share a creative peak at what the next STI might look like.

    Based on the Impreza Design Concept unveiled at the LA Auto Show, the STI model gets the requisite fender flares, top-mount intercooler and, of course, a massive wing on the back. The concept car has actually received a significant level of criticism from the Subaru faithful, although itís easy to see how the handsome compact car shape works perfectly in a more aggressive form.

    While Subarus have never been the most attractive cars on the road and the STI has always paled in comparison to its Mitsubishi rival, if Subieís designers follow this path it might be the first time the EVO comes up short on the looks department.

    Some parts are nice... others make me taste the puke. It looks like they took 40 hotwheels, jammed them all together, and used the "Honey I blew up the kids" layzhor to create this delight.

    exactly, why bother to even include it in their (non)-"article"?

    Looks good! Maybe I'll wait for the 2012 instead of buying the 2011 in the spring

    I love it, although I doubt you will see a new body style for another 4 years at least. With this years release of the new sedan and the upgraded style to the wrx and then even more so slight changes to the 2011 sti there is no reason to redo the body style.

    beauty drawing though as said above!

    It is a drawing... and it's basically THE article. It's a "what might the next STI look like" article.

    And yes, Subaru does change the STI and WRX all the time, but the new Impreza will be out shortly and the high performance versions will follow in 2012 or 2013.

    The rendering is based on this concept version of the next Impreza

    I love it also, but Subaru is known for changing it up every 2-3 years, and they are due for a facelift.

    02-03, 04-05, 06-07, 08-11 (ish) (longest run without a makeover change in almost a decade)

    I say 2012 or 13 will have a re-design for sure
