We have more good an bad news coming your way from the famous Japanese AWD specialist automaker. We’ve already told you that Subaru’s lineup for the 2012 Tokyo Auto Salon includes a whole bunch of BRZ sports coupe versions.
But what die-hard Subaru fans want right now is the new Impreza STI, powered by a smaller 2.0-liter turbo boxer instead of the old 2.5-liter. The good news is that such a car will be previewed at the Tokyo venue by the G4 STI Concept, but the bad new is that it’s actually just a regular JDM Impreza G4 sedan with a bunch of cosmetic touches.

We’re excited to see what the car will look like wearing a full body kit, and some 18-inch rally boots. But the fact of the matter is that the next STI was supposed to be different to the Impreza, a standalone product that’s still loosely based on the same suspension.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
