    Spy photos: All-New Subaru Impreza

    This past month has brought several sightings of possible WRX test mules (in Legacy bodies), but now we’ve caught the very first pictures of an actual WRX prototype, and it doesn’t look like any WRX that you’ve ever seen before! Subaru gave us a big clue with the showing of their B5 concept, and the Impreza and WRX models are following the B5’s lead with a dramatic makeover which turns its trunk into a hatchback!

    Yes, that’s right: The WRX, as seen here, will be a hatchback when the new model makes it’s debut for the 2008 model year! Just like the B5 Concept. And, we’re hearing the Impreza name may even change with the introduction of the new car, but we can’t imagine Subaru dropping the WRX designation. As for power – we’re anticipating a big update to their 2.5 liter H4 turbo, with an output of around 330-horsepower – and maybe even higher in some markets!

  2. Ive always loved the B5 concept
     
  3. damn, its gonna look like the current Forester and that is one damn ugly car
     
  4. Did it ever occur to those idiots that's going to be the WRX Wagon??? I highly doubt they're going to drop the normal 4 door version, because that would be idiotic. And if they did then what would be the difference between that thing and their wagon model??? Pretty much Nil. Hence this is simply their wagon model and that guy is an idiot. Or maybe they'll have this, and a slightly longer wagon, but they're not going to drop the normal 4 door.
     
  5. That's what I was thinking. Wagon.
     
  6. The next one is going to be a hatchback though
     
  7. I'd have no problem with a Hatchback WRX, especially if it were a 2 door <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A> But I don't think they're going to drop the normal sedan version.
     
  8. HAHAHA!!!
     
  9. So they replace the pig nose with some ugly grill thingy? Fookin brilliant...
     
  10.  
  11. I hate it. But I'll wait until i see a production version before finalizing my verdict.
     
  12. All modern cars are slowly looking more and more like audis and nissans.
     
  13. Im hoping that it will look something like this so I can see this dominate the WRC.

    Edit: Nevermind, Pic isn't uploading.
     
  14. hahaha!!!
     
  15. Subaru needs to find a good nose. This is better than last gen, but not as good as 2 gen ago.
     
  16. You don't like it? I think it rules, just look at the rear end, georgous
     
  17. Something to make Geo Metro owners proud of their car's styling...
     
  18. i cant realy see. i do see some legacy in it
     
  19. I like it, just not sure about the hatchback.
     
  20. the camo makes the front look foresterish...dunno...the rear looks a lil like a mazda3, cept with a messed up gate...just hoping this doesnt turn out too messed overall ==;;...

    will wait and see...
     
  21. lol, i was going to post that but then i thought im sure someone will point it out that its a wagon
