We have seen the future of Subaru, and it’s the BRZ STI concept. The production model “is expected to be equipped with a naturally aspirated 2.0-liter flat-4, perhaps with as much as 200 bhp.” No word yet on pricing or availability. Click here for more pictures.

Ken Block could have made his Gymkhana course look easy, but here’s an interesting spoof that puts a funny twist on it — Subaru Impreza STi not included. Continue reading for the video.

With a beaten base Impreza, a few sets of tires and enough fireworks to send Patton cowering under a desk, the creators of Scumballers and Team Torque have created ten full minutes of epic hoontastic footage.
