Subaru STI Performance Concept 05

Subaru of America has taken the covers off the BRZ-based STI Performance Concept at the ongoing New York Auto Show 2015. Don’t get excited yet as the concept only represents the company’s proposition to expand in the area of aftermarket parts, car tuning and motorsports in the country.

According to Subaru, the expansion has already taken place with STI-engineered parts replacing Subaru Performance Tuning (SPT) aftermarket parts in the US market, and STI’s increased of commitment in Subaru of America’s Global RallyCross team.

Subaru also promises to offer its American consumers all STI-tuned cars in the future. These vehicles will be more potent that ever, with parts such as suspension, performance, braking, chassis and aerodynamic upgrades coming straight from the factory.

The STI Performance you see here isn’t a complete dud. It borrows some of the components, namely the engine, bodykit, suspension as well as chassis upgrades from the BRZ GT300 race car. Although it won’t transform into a turbocharged BRZ STI as we all have been hoping for, the concept will spawn better performing models in the future.
