The clock continues to wind down for the start of the 2016 Tokyo Auto Salon, January 15 to 17 at the Makuhari Messe in Chiba City, Japan, and while our troops are champing at the bit to get over there and JDM their brains out, news is trickling in about what they can expect to encounter when they arrive (y'all see our bit about the Rocket Bunny ND MX-5?)

Subaru , for instance, has teased a handful of concept models and race cars that will be in its booth, all championed by its Subaru Tecnica International, Inc. (STI) performance division. The list includes the “STI Performance Concept,” basically the BRZ STI enthusiasts have been clamoring for; the “Levorg STI Concept” and “Subaru XV Hybrid STI Concept”; and entries for Super GT 2016 (a GT300-class BRZ), NBR Challenge 2016 (a WRX STI), and the Japan Rally Championship 2016 (another WRX STI). Pictured below are last year’s versions of all three racecars.

At a press conference on the 15th, Subaru will announce its 2016 motorsport aims, which you can watch live via USTREAM; additionally, the automaker has set up a micro-site for its proceedings at the Auto Salon. In the meantime you can check out our coverage from last year’s show here and here.
