Hey the rear window flapped open . As long as the rear window is with that thick pillar. I imagine you are right on the money for needing the extra mirror sq. inches.

I don't see any lines for a hatch so could it still be Subaru's Mule ?

I'm kind of curious what's under the mule's hood.

And wow those exhaust pipes are big enough to fit a whole Idaho potato .

LMAO Comments like this makes me laugh. Can you prove to us that, that pics is 100% Toyota/SCION ver and not Subaru? Also can you prove to us that's the final production ver design?

Again if you can't say yes to any of my question, then you're just assuming.

not bad at all!!

We can imagine behind the stickers, a more credible production car, some part have disapeared but the general look is pretty good, like a little toyota coupe (like celica)

I still love

So you've already de-swirled the photos in photoshop and reconstructed the styling to deduce what the production sheetmetal is like? Because if you haven't and you're "one of those people" that sees a swirled-camo prototype and your eyes get confused so you're brain gets scared and you run away like a retard even before seeing the real thing, I suggest you put on your thinking cap and stick around until someone chops it to see how it's styled behind the swirled camo.

From what I can tell so far, the styling is primarily FT-86 II with an FT-86 grille, however the lights have a Subaru flair with the droopy spherical outer sections.

It's likely the reverse light & euro rear-fog light.

LMAO you're assuming as well son. Can you prove this isn't the final production design? Can you prove that it is the Subaru version? That's what I thought.

If that is the Scion, I may hold my breath for a better-looking Subie version... never would have thought I'd utter those words.

My comments were directed at your assumptions that this was the production version and you were making your decision off of that. If you need a new car now, then get one. But if you can wait, why not wait until the end of the year when you will most likely see the full production version? Not sure why you need to get upset about it? We don't know if this is the Toyota/Scion/Subaru version yet. Why don't we just wait?

Btw, who said the engine is gonna have 200hp? That is still speculation at this point.

You're messing wrong person. Yes, I know the answer (to certain point)...

Ichi never said it was one or the other. That is his point. He never said it was anything. Just that you can't make the assumption of which model it is; which is correct.
