The production version all-new Subaru Forester now unveiled, we bring you the Foresters that never were with a collection of sketches and renderings showing the designs Subaru's design team rejected.

The production version all-new Subaru Forester having been unveiled only several days ago this Christmas Eve, we now bring you the Foresters that never were. With a collection of sketches and renderings pinched from our colleagues over at Carscoop, the designs Subaru's design team rejected are now revealed.

We'll leave you to decide whether the Scooby team chose well, but note the inclusion of Subaru's propeller-style grille, prominent on the last Impreza and Tribeca, on early design concepts as well as both subtle and radical changes to the front headlamps arrangement and the various configuration of the rear lights in a number of design options.

Let us know what you think by leaving your comments below. And to check out photos of the new production model, head over to our extensive 2009 Forester photo album.
