Subaru has uncovered an attractive concept at the Tokyo Motor Show. The only trouble is, nobody's quite sure what it previews.

On the car's side, there are some large flared fenders, and the body above the taillight moves upward into an integrated spoiler.

With a 107.4-inch wheelbase, the Viziv Performance Concept could preview a new, larger WRX compared to today's model that rides on a 104.3-inch wheelbase.

Or, it could be a precursor to a slightly smaller next-generation Legacy. The current Legacy uses a 108.3-inch wheelbase.
