The WRX Concept was a concept that looked production ready, but turned out to be a pure concept, not related to anything (or did it?). The Impreza/Crosstreck were production cars, with concept bits. BMW concepts are usually production cars with more or less concept modifications brought to them. Lately, BMW transforms its production cars into concepts very much; they do not simply change the lights interior design, but they also change to overall shape, they put shorter bumpers for smaller overhangs, they give the wheels a good stance, the interior is custom made. Once the true car is out, although most of it is the same, it just does not have that effect anymore. The Subaru BRZ STI Concept is a tuned/modified standard BRZ, but looks so different, much more modern and expensive. Of course this will be no different, unfortunately.
