STI MuleVia NASIOC, epicenter of all things Subaru, come some very interesting spy photos showing an apparent Impreza STI mule. Ignore the regular Impreza body and instead focus on the exterior tipoffs.The dual twin-tipped exhaust outlets and rolled fenders that accommodate a meatier wheel/tire package show that this is no garden-variety WRX. The most important photo in the set, however, is of the car's interior. There, the STI badging is plainly visible, along with unique steering wheel trim plus an SI-Drive selector just below the shifter. This at least reveals a good part of the STI equation. Now we just want to see how much more menacing the real bodywork's going to look.

Thanks for the heads-up, Gabe!

      And this is why I'll be looking for a low mileage 07 STi in a little more than a year once my Mazdaspeed Protege is paid off....

      I cant believe they went and ruined that car...

      Yeah, I hated the look when I first saw it. Go look at one in person, especially the 4 door. The body seam line suggests a BMW. Really, it does. It's not so bad and will fly under the cops eyeballs, no big stupid wing and rear window splitter thingy, no huge hoodscoop.

      I cant wait until the rally/X-games with it and the first tuned STI hits the street, or I see one in a magazine. I think that most perceptions will change.

      I would imagine that Cobb and Cusco are at work on engine and suspension pieces for it.

      U-G-L-Y... You ain't got no alibi... You ugly! Hey! Hey! You ugly!!!
      • 7 Years Ago
      I think both the new STI and EVO are butt ugly. However, no ones buys a STI or a EVO because its pretty anyway. I didn't buy my STI because it was pretty.
      • 7 Years Ago
      yeah i think the evo x waiting list just got longer.
      • 7 Years Ago
      If that's ugly, I wonder what you guys think of the generic McPeople McMovers that McHonda keeps pumping out.

        so what if Mcdonald is American, but the name is Irish
        SO you THanks for playing...but you just lost.
        Game over!

      I thought GM and Subaru weren't building any more cars together! This thing sure looks like an Optra5...

      The interior looks downmarket and dated.
      The Tribeca and Legacy interiors look far better.

      As far as the Impreza itself, I really want to see on in person to figure out if I really hate it as much as I think I do so far.
      • 7 Years Ago
      Oh wow is that a Chevy Aveo?
      • 7 Years Ago

      It is going to be a real wolf in sheep's clothing, which, frankly, will make it easier to explore its performance envelope without being detected.

        While this may be true (and a good thing) I'd still rather have a slow but classy looking car. Like, an older BMW 3 series.
