Subaru VIZIV Performance STI Concept Previews the Next STI

Debuts at Tokyo Auto Salon

Collin Woodard
Jan 10, 2018

This year, the Tokyo Auto Salon begins January 12, and we should have coverage any moment now. As we wait for our freelancers' dispatches from Japan, though, we know that Subaru at least plans to have a booth at the show featuring the concept you see above: the VIZIV Performance STI Concept.

While we only have one angle, it's clear the STI Concept is an evolution of the VIZIV Performance Concept we saw at the Tokyo Motor Show back in October. The front end is more aggressive, featuring new intakes and more aggressive headlights, as well as what looks to be more-flared fenders and, of course, a large wing. Sadly, Subaru hasn't given any extra details about potential powertrains, performance, etc.

From what we saw with the VIZIV Performance Concept and the changes we can see here, it looks like the VIZIV Performance STI Concept will be seriously cool. Unfortunately, Subaru doesn't have the best record of turning concepts into production vehicles without watering down the design. Based on how the 2010 Subaru Impreza Design Concept changed, it's a safe bet that the production versions of these VIZIV Performance Concepts will look quite a bit more restrained than they do now.

Hopefully, we'll find out more when the VIZIV Performance STI Concept makes its official debut.

From the Editors of SS: Well, well, well, what do we have here? Our Monday morning became a whole lot more interesting waking up to the announcement of a new V-8 Lexus IS, the IS 500 F Sport Performance – but do not call it an IS F. While it uses the same 2UR-GSE mill

As a color choice, we don’t generally see a lot of turquoise on tuner cars; it seems to be a hue favored more by bejeweled sun-loving grandmas with leathery skin rather than Japanese car fans. But the dazzling sheen on Jimmy Tu’s Chrome Turquoise 2015 Nissan GT-R is kind of mesmerizing and possibly the perfect

Cars like this 1996 Civic Type R EK9 are commonly found among the most desired by Honda fans old and young. Sure, it doesn’t carry the dramatic appeal of, say, the original NSX – a car that carries a legion of fans not only enamored with Hondas but car enthusiasts of all types – and

Super Street: It didn’t even make any sense back in 1999 when Honda announced that its S2000 was on its way to dealerships. Knee-deep in all things Honda during an era when the 5th gen. Civic, a monumental hit for Honda’s aftermarket hungry fans was just being followed up by the 6th generation Civic –

From the Editors at SS: It may be from the ‘80s, and never offered in America, and look a little goofy with its ride height hiked up the way it is, but all of that belies the sports car athlete that is the midengined, turbo four-banger, AWD RS200. Made so Ford could go rally racing
