Our Japanese may be a bit rusty, but our eyes work just fine. So it was hard to miss this teaser image for an upcoming version of the Subaru Impreza WRX STI tS sporting a carbon fiber roof. When we click to the English-language portion of the site the image and information disappears, so we don't know what else to make of this STI tS and its lighter chapeau.

For the non-Subaru aficionados reading along, tS stands for "Tuned by STI" and we last saw the crew at Subaru Tecnica International apply wrenches to the Legacy. The resulting Legacy B4 2.5GT tS had us drooling and we expect the WRX STI tS to have a similar affect on our salivary glands.

      • 4 Years Ago
      Why ruin that roof? How come we haven't embraced the in window antenna like my old RX-8?

      probably would look like this, I don't know if this is the ts model, but it does have the carbon fiber roof

      The STi needs all those JDM only performance options so Subaru can post good 'ring Nordschleife times and still claim its a production car.
        • 4 Years Ago
        And the problem with that is what, exactly? JDM is still regular production.

        Do you get your panties in a twist over UK-only, or Europe-only variants?

      Won't be as cool as the 22B. Which was the only 'cool' STI ever made.

      "tS" stands for "tough sh!t" because we aint gettin it
      • 4 Years Ago
      I dont care about these JDM versions anymore,because we wont get them..
      • 4 Years Ago
      "So let me get this straight: It's the Subaru Impreza WRX STI 'tuned by STI'? Why not just WRX tS?"

      Don't worry about it, it's technica.

      Oh, what's that? Something cool that we can't get here in America? You don't say....

      America getting the shaft, nothing new here.
