Thanks to one of our addicted reader, we just received the first shot of the 2011 Subaru WRX Sti sedan in the wild. Looks like the car is parked in a warehouse, most likely awaiting the delivery truck that will bring her rightful owner. This is a big news for all Subaru fans out there, who are still wondering what happened to their beloved 4 door sedan Sti. Let’s hope this is the return of the ultra aggressive Subaru’s as we used to love them back in the days, before the Mitsubishi Evo came to bring down the king of AWD sports cars.

Keep in mind that the glorious return of the STi sedan in 2010 comes with a big push for the wide body. Indeed, all the WRX, even without the STi mojo under the hood will all come with the extra body kit. Too bad as we were BIIIG fans of the regular narrow body / stealth 2009 WRX. At least, we hope that Subaru will not stab in the back the left foot heavy who are spending the extra $ on the real Sti, by selling the STi badge as a $5 option on the WRX model!

Thanks to Robbie Tigan for the tip.

I’m not sure if the FT-86 "borrows" this or not, but when I look at the straight on view of the back and can’t help but think of the 3rd gen RX-7 tail light treatment. It even has a little duck tail like the 3rd gen. This is actually why I like the FT-86 concept so much.

Very nice. I’ve seen the 2011 Subaru WRX hatchback in person and it definitely looks so much better with the improved exterior styling taken from the STI (wider body fenders, improved lines, wider wheels, etc).

I think it looks nice. i don’t like the fact that Subaru’s flagship car is a four door, not to mention that it has a less sporty version of it. This is how it ought to be. maybe less flare, true, but being a 3 door hatch would’ve made a whole lot more sense.

actually i will admit the sti is faster then the evo but the evo has a way better suspension trust me I have an evo 8 and the handeling is uncomperable just watch topgear.

Hmm, I really miss the Sedan edition of the STI. What a lovely rear! A far more superior than the hatch version.

What a lovely Subaru Impreza in Sedan body Trim. I really missed it. I hope I can see both EVO and Impreza come face to face on the next WRC.

This 2011 Subaru WRX STi Sedan are getting a wider tracks and STI-inspired wide-body styling, and figured the nails were already being driven into the STI’s coffin. We were so wrong, as Subaru shows it has no plans of killing the STI with this additional new sedan body style.

I would never buy an Evo over an STI, unless you want nothing but problems. For the price, the WRX has the best performance, and is one of the best bang-for-your-buck cars in production. Thankfully they went back to the sedan version.
