New production model likely to be Japan-only offering

The CUV market is hot and Subaru is looking to make it hotter – in a completely other way – by giving people a hopped-up version of the Forester, complete with STi goodies.

First shown at the Japan Motorsport Festival as the Forester STi tS concept, the new model looks to be a Japan-only affair considering the lack of chatter on this side of the Pacific.

However, if you make your way to Japan or Subaru changes its mind and brings this hot Forester to our shores, expect a turbocharged 2.5-litre four-cylinder BOXER engine from the WRX STi pumping out 305 hp and 290 lb-ft of torque.

We will have full details when they become available on November 25.
