WRX-Saab conversion

I thought this looked neat, its a photochop, but i think it has something going that i like about it.

It does look a little funny at first, but then it kinda opens up....I know y'all have mixed emotions bout the saabaru, but setting that aside, what do you think?

I wouldnt like how the inerior would still be subaru, If i could swap in the saabs interior this would be a hella sick car.

That is sweeeeet. Smooth out and drop down the fender flares (like a c900), and smooth out some of the other lines....and wow...

New saab EVO wheels?


And ditch the spoiler. Or, smaller maybe? Think whale tail, but more modern.

Ok, now I'm dreaming.

Shoulda been the 9X in the first place. I like subarus too but that reminds me of the 90's when toyota guys used to put C900 grills on their cars.

yeah that would have made the 9-2x a totally different car. if only they had put out a sedan version and maybe even a coupe version sooo many more people would have paid interest to it.

lol my fav line is either
"Let me explain something to you. Um, I am not "Mr. Lebowski". You're Mr. Lebowski. I'm the Dude. So that's what you call me. You know, that or, uh, His Dudeness, or uh, Duder, or El Duderino if you're not into the whole brevity thing. "

Or Jesus... "NOBODY FUCKS WITH THE JESUS!"
and then Walter.. "eight year olds dude."

As for the topic, that looks MUCH better than the stock WRX front end. They totally slaughtered the fronts in 06.. and I wasnt even too big a fan of the prior style either. Bug eye'd subies for the win!

I just threw up in my mouth.


All you guys are sick. That is a graphical representation of why they did not make a sedan 9-2x

My .02 cents

its hawt and i tried convincing the guy in my car club that just wrecked his 02 WRX to do this conversion because he always talked about it but he ended up just getting it fixed to stock at a local shop. I may have to buy a subaru and do that someday... just so i can have AWD for winter driving!
