This new concept, along with a new upright scooter, will take the stage at the upcoming 2017 Tokyo Motor Show.

This year, the Tokyo Auto Salon begins January 12, and we should have coverage any moment now. As we wait for our freelancers' dispatches from Japan, though, we know that Subaru at least plans to have a booth at the show featuring the concept you see above: the VIZIV Performance STI Concept .

We know that Subaru at least plans to have a booth at the show featuring the concept you see above: the VIZIV Performance STI Concept.

While we only have one angle, it's clear the STI Concept is an evolution of the VIZIV Performance Concept we saw at the Tokyo Motor Show back in October. The front end is more aggressive, featuring new intakes and more aggressive headlights, as well as what looks to be more-flared fenders and, of course, a large wing. Sadly, Subaru hasn't given any extra details about potential powertrains, performance, etc.

From what we saw with the VIZIV Performance Concept and the changes we can see here, it looks like the VIZIV Performance STI Concept will be seriously cool. Unfortunately, Subaru doesn't have the best record of turning concepts into production vehicles without watering down the design. Based on how the 2010 Subaru Impreza Design Concept changed, it's a safe bet that the production versions of these VIZIV Performance Concepts will look quite a bit more restrained than they do now.

Building off the wild success of its predecessor, the RX Vision concept, the Vision Coupe attempts to give the public a look at the next generation of Mazda's design language, the underlying tenets that guide the design of every car in the lineup.

Nevertheless, the new Subaru Viziv Performance STI is said to preview the next generation WRX STI , but knowing that the Japanese car marque tends to drastically tone down its concepts for production, this one will likely follow the same route.

Subaru executives confirmed that the Viziv Performance Concept that came out last year will heavily influence the design of the next WRX, so this new concept previews the STI version.

Hopefully, we'll find out more when the VIZIV Performance STI Concept makes its official debut.
