The Tokyo Auto Salon is almost upon us and Subaru has issued a press release in which they announce to bring three STI models to the show.

STI, short for Subaru Tecnica International, is bringing a lot of firework to the upcoming show in Tokyo. A full list at the end of this article shows all they are bringing 4 race cars, but most interesting are the 3 new models. A hybrid, a BRZ based model and Levorg will have us speculating for months about the upcoming models from the in-house tuner.

STI Performance Concept

The press release was issued with just one image attached, that of the BRZ based STI Performance Concept. A car already displayed during the New York show this year, its performance enhanced concept has not changed. It seems that Volvo and Polestar are not alone in the in-house tuning of hybrid models, as the XV Hybrid Concept points out that Subaru and their Tecnica International are going after the same thing. It will not wear the typical blue livery, but a mixture of white and orange to accentuate the different powertrain it utilizes. Further more the car will wear the usual Subaru Tecnica International weaponry. Last on the list the Levorg concept, a performance oriented wagon. A road Subaru and  have successfully walked down before. When the full info package is here we will update you again.
