Subaru Japan has revealed the first teaser image of a future Impreza WRX STI tS (tuned by STI) model. Unfortunately, we don’t have much information on the model because the site is in Japanese and the English version is nonexistent (insert frustrated growl here). And the bad news doesn’t stop there as this edition will only be available in Japan. Why doesn’t that surprise us?
We were able to get some information from the image as it is blatantly obvious that a carbon fiber roof is present. All we need to know now is what other goodies will be in store for us, well Japan, when this new model comes out.
We are not really expecting to see any significant improvements under the hood due to the fact that nothing changed in that department for the Legacy tS unveiled earlier this year. It was distinguished only by a front lip and rear spoiler, 18" alloy wheels, a less restrictive muffler, and STi badges. It also got a revised Bilstein suspension, strut tower bars, and carbon fiber trimming. Our guess is that the new WRX STI tS will follow along those same lines, but that carbon fiber roof is pretty intriguing. Maybe we’ll see a few more fascinating mods when this vehicle is placed in the spotlight.
