We don’t know when it’ll come out or what will be under the hood of a Subaru Impreza WRX STI but, we do know that a high-performance version of the latest Impreza will eventually make an appearance and X-Tomi has come out with a rendering of what it could look like.

Based on the recently revealed 2017 Impreza four-door sedan but with design elements from the outgoing WRX STI, X-Tomi’s rendering features a large set of gold alloy wheels, rear wing, chin spoiler, what seems to be side skirts, reworked front air intakes, and a large hood vent.

An exterior update alone won’t be enough to sell an STI model, we’ll need a new engine too. Right now, the outgoing model is equipped with 2.5L Boxer engine with an output of 305 hp and 290 lb-ft of torque. Not a bad number but Subaru raised the bar with the limited-edition WRX STI S207 that was only made available to Japan. At 323hp with 318 lb-ft of torque, the S207’s 2.0-liter turbocharged boxer-four engine has substantially more power compared to the U.S. spec 305hp.

Wouldn’t it be great if the S207 engine was offered with the next Impreza WRX STI?

That is exactly the sort of look I was hoping for in the current generation which was just lacking some of the in your face appeal this one has and what the second generation had.

Putting in visuals:
