Prodrive to fix the WRX

I don't think this has been mentioned on here but there was a little bit in the latest Wheels about Prodrive being contracted to fix the look of the WRX.
We should see the result of prodrives work next year!

I wonder why they wouldn't do it inhouse, maybe they think their own designers will make it worse than it currently is.

This is a stop gap measure to address the ugly looks of the current model. Subaru will be designing the next model in house.

I'm sure owners of the current Rex will be happy to know that their car will be superseeded very soon.
Didn't the last shape WRX run from 1994 to 2000.

That article also said that the sales have been slow as well. I just came back from visiting a friend in hospital this afternoon and was sitting behind one and it still looks too weird to me. Prodrive can only improve it at this stage.

Those headlights need to get the flick.

MEMO TO SUBARU-

Have a look at the Ford 49 concept car to see what round headlights are supposed to look like.

What's the one lesson for any car company that can be learned from AU Falcon and the new impressa?

You can have an excellent product but if your exterior styling isn't up to scratch, the people won't come.

there is allready a prodrive version of th wrx. I see the,m all the time in CAR UK and EVO mags. It's got a larger rear spoiler and rally looking lights. Still doesn't do much for me though.
