After announcing the debut of the 2011 Impreza WRX models at the New York Auto Show later this week, Subaru has now teased the the updated STI model. To be more precise, Subaru hasn’t actually said anything about an STI, but it has released the above photo and a simple phrase: “The wing is back!”

We don’t have to be investigative journalists to see that Subaru is referring to past STI models and their massive wings – particularly notable of late on sedan models. So could this mean the return of the STI sedan? Quite possibly.

The bigger news, however, is still to come. After all, with Subaru announcing the 2011 WRX would get the STIs wide-body, the STI will need to take performance to an even higher level. So what does Subaru have in store? An even wider body? More power?

We’ll be sure to bring you all the details on the 2011 STI as soon as we know with live coverage of the 2010 New York Auto Show starting March 31st.

Doesn't have the profile of a hatch......it matches the profile of the sedan almost perfectly when superimposed, and being that the WRX Sedan is getting the STi bodywork, it makes perfect sense........

Mmm I see what you're talking about. Also the curve line leading up to the wing suggests that the body ends right about where a hatch would and would look awkward as a sedan. The rear portion of the veil also doesn't show any signs of adherence to a body underneath, meaning there's lots of empty space back there, meaning hatch.

Something always looks "off" with Subies... :\

Might be the wheels, the grille, the lack of contrast, I duno.. good progress though.
