The Japanese automaker has built a reputation crafting some of the best-looking concept cars we’ve seen in recent years, only to disappoint us when the production model rolls out with significantly toned down styling. But this time around, Subaru design chief Mamoru Ishii claims the next WRX will be heavily influenced by the Viziv Performance Concept.
