Is this is a Subaru BRZ STi?

Autoblog brings a great series of spy shots showing what is likely to be an STi version of the Subaru BRZ sports coupé. With a more aggressive body kit, including that large rear wing, this is clearly not a regular BRZ.

STi badging is clearly available on the wheel centre caps, so too on the front brake calipers (follow the source link below). We wonder if the rumoured turbocharged engine is beneath the bonnet. Certainly a pair of fatter exhaust tips indicate the performance has been beefed up.

Either way, this shapes as being one of the most aggressive factory Toybaru models seen to date. Subaru is bringing a new Forester to the LA Auto Show at the end of the month. What chance they may sneak a BRZ STi onto their display as well?
