Subaru has released several teaser images depicting the 2015 Forester STi which will premiere on November 25.
At the beginning of last month at Suzuka track during the Japan Motorsport Festival we saw Subaru's Forester STi tS concept and now it appears a virtually identical production version will be offered. For the moment it's not known whether this is a Japan-only model or Subaru will decide to commercialize the hot Forester in international markets.
What we do know is that it will feature a beefier body kit complemented by enlarged STi-branded brakes, bigger wheels, front spoiler lip, red accents both inside and out, Galaxy Blue Pearl body paint and sportier suspension setup.
Expect the enhanced looks to be matched by a more powerful engine but its identity is not known at this point. It's unlikely it will be the 4-cylinder, 2.5-liter turbocharged boxer engine from the WRX STi where it develops 305 bhp (227 kW) and 393 Nm (290 lb-ft) as the output will probably be a bit less in the spiced up Forester.
The 2015 Subaru Forester STi will be unveiled on November 25.
