Perhaps we shouldn’t feel so let down by the first image of the 2015 Subaru WRX; we had to know the futuristic, three-dimensional LED headlights and myriad other cool show-car trinkets of the WRX concept wouldn’t make it to production. Yet we dared to believe differently, and thus do feel let down.

Here’s are pictures from the R&T article…they updated it with the below pictures, from FB group CluBRZ, and then the pictures disappeared. The source was probably asked by Subaru to remove it – that’s speculation, though! Someone at IWSTI stated that the below pictures are confirmed to have been leaked. Wading into the rumor mill, I actually believe the rumor that the pictures were leaked…that doesn’t mean that the pictures were meant to be for public consumption (remembering that they were pulled from the CluBRZ site). Apparently, there is Impreza badging on the below pictures, which means that Subaru hasn’t developed a new platform for the WRX and STI, which wouldn’t be as they’d promised the public. Again, the Impreza badging doesn’t mean they’re lying…it could be that the below pictures are mule-state pictures, which could be why they didn’t want them released.
And this is why I hate rumors…it can easily become a twisted mess to determine what’s true and what’s not.
