EDITED with post by Hachiroku:

Sorry fellas, I was there at the show (press days) and the FT-86 isn't there

Tweeted about it yesterday. Make sure to subscribe to our twitter if you use the service.

Toyota didn't even have a press conference, guess their attention is turned to other matters right now. Instead, an Avalon is on the main display stand in Toyota's section of the show.

Well, there was a face lift announced for the WRX sedan and hatch.

The 2011 STi is still under wraps.

Yes we will see STi tomorrow, and yes "THE WING IS BACK". Finally, Subaru understand that STi needs a Wing, a huge wing( er not really huge).

Someone on the NASIOC said the EFI Logics(suby tuners) guys are at the Subaru press conference tonight and reported back, the STi will now be offered in a hatch and sedan so you can choose.

No, wider fenders, STI suspensions and black Brembo calipers and pretty much all the STI stuff it has on hatchback ver.

As for the pic, that kinda looks like Impreza GT, instead of STI (GT is between WRX and STI iirc).

^ it was only in this last generation of impreza the GR(08-10) platform that STi did not share any of its body panels as the WRX. The GD(04-07) WRX and STI had identical bodies(fenders). I see what suby is doing, trying to save money by not having two sets of fenders.

It just came to me what the rear bumper of the new wrx sedan looks like....
