There’s a bit of an uproar today. Why? A mule of what’s apparently a VA-series STI hatch has been spotted. What’s the uproar about? Well, it’s two-fold.
- A hatch version was speculation. The current WRX and STI line-up consists only of sedan models.
- “WTF?! It’s ugly!”…people don’t understand that mules rarely look like the production models. The same exact thing happened with the sedan’s mule spotting (WTF?! It’s ugly!). They also saw the WRX concept and did the exact same thing: they let their emotions and the pre-production viewings get the better of them…their expectations ran amuck.
I’m not a hatch guy, so I’m fine with the current sedan model, but I’ll wait until a production photo is released for the hatch before I judge it.
