More TCC Spy Shots   

This past month has brought several sightings of possible WRX test mules (in Legacy bodies), but now weve caught the very first pictures of an actual WRX prototype, and it doesnt look like any WRX that youve ever seen before.


Subaru gave us a big clue with the showing of their B5 concept, and the Impreza and WRX models are following the B5s lead with a dramatic makeover which turns its trunk into a hatchback.


The WRX, as seen here, will be a hatchback when the new model makes its debut for the 2008 model year, just like the B5 Concept. The Impreza name may even change with the introduction of the new car, but we cant imagine Subaru dropping the WRX designation.


As for power, were anticipating a big update to their 2.5-liter H4 turbo, with an output of around 330 horsepower, maybe even higher in some markets. —Chris Doane for Brenda Priddy & Company
