Fancy a new Subaru BRZ STI, roadster or shooting brake?

After seeing these unofficial renders, we suspect you'll want all three

That didn’t take long. Mere days after the new, second-gen Subaru BRZ broke cover, the creative rendering industry has been attaching virtual wings or lopping off the roof.

Yep, TopGear.com favourite X-Tomi Design sees the boxer-engined coupe as a mere base for its fine electronic crayonsmanship (it’s a word).

So there’s a BRZ STI, something the gen1 BRZ never truly boasted on an official level. STI treatment only ever amounted to styling packs and some suspension tweaks, never anything to boost the standard car’s exceedinly modest 197bhp. This X-Tomi imagining of a gen2 STI looks like a proper 300bhp-plus Cayman fighter. We like it.

The other two offerings are similarly based on stuff that’s not previously existed – roadster and shooting brake versions of Subaru’s RWD coupe. Toyota flirted with the idea of a GT86 convertible, but it never made production.

Like what you see? Or would simply getting the regular gen2 BRZ in UK showrooms be enough to keep you happy?
