Thanks to Paul for pointing out that our friends at NASOIC had got it wrong.
Our friends at the North American Subaru Impreza Owners Club (NASIOC), have spotted this mule being tested in the US.
The photographer said
I tried to follow it for as long as I can but the driver was getting annoyed and sped away. At the light, it definitely has that STI engine rumble. Not to mention, it sped away like an STI. It was being driven by two japanese men. I couldnt get a clean still shot of the brembo's. They were trying to flee from me so i couldnt get a shot of the aggressive front with hood scoop
If this is the new STi, and we believe it is, the rear wing must be massive! Although there is a possibility it is over exaggerated deliberately to hide its true shape.
As the car is being tested in the US, we expect more spyshots to surface in the next few weeks!
