Default Ugliest Subaru Ever?? - OBS owners watch out!

I saw one of these today - did a double take and even turned around and followed it for a while to make sure my eyes weren't playing tricks on me. Took some pics on my phone so will download them tomorrow.

It must be the saddest and ugliest Subaru I have ever seen.........

I think the lady driver was thinking she was being stalked - or was she just self conscious at driving such an ugly car?

Found this link to 2 versions of the JDM catalogue ....

FWIW - It looks even WORSE in the flesh!

Reminds me of the Matador. Still not as ugly as the Tribeca though.

Come on now. Seriously? We all agree the Tribeca is ugly, but do you honestly think it's uglier than this crap?

Well here's the pics - not good quality I am afraid as they are from my phone which only has a VGA camera. Then again, there's not much to see anyway !

This is WAY uglier than the Tribeca to ....

Brian .... that's surprising, given some of the things your industry has produced over there that they have called cars



and the rear view of this thing isn't too bad - but the front is another story.... I don't understand it.

The tail lights look like a cheap kit that a ricer would pop in.

So look up Impreza Casablanca and you can find a few things about it, looks like it's made for the JDM but there are pics of one in Taiwan. Also seems they have used this name for limited-run Impreza models in years past.

One page mentioned Subaru catered to the Asian sense of exotic, faraway place names - so you get Lancaster and Brighton and Casablanca in the Asian markets.
