This rendering shows a jet powered STI with a cyberpunk theme. In place of the regular wheels, this Subaru has four large jet thrusters that power it vertically, just like the Harrier Jump Jet.
Why would Santa need a car? The jolly one was given a Gymkhana DVD as a gift last year, and he now dreams of becoming the next Ken Block. The only problem is there are no tracks at the North Pole, so he needs something that flies to practice.
This rendering reminds us of older video games from the early 2000s. Back then, game developers experimented with flying cars, tracks that looped around and afterburners. Electronic Arts makes billions from the Need for Speed franchise, so maybe it's time for them to invest in a cyberpunk race game, maybe taking some shooting action into consideration.
Saleem's photo is over half a year old, but we didn't catch it last Christmas. Who knows, maybe by the end of 2015, Santa will really buy a Subaru and learn how to use the handbrake.
