Subaru Forester tS gets STi touches, but only for the JDM market

Subaru Forester tS

A couple of days ago, we brought you the Subaru Forester S-Edition Concept. At the time, a Subaru spokesperson said that the concept hints at a new variant of the Forester with no plans of offering it in the United States. Well… he wasn’t lying. Meet the Subaru Forester tS model for the Japanese domestic market.

Power for the Subaru Forester tS comes from a 2.5L Boxer turbocharged engine mated to a 5-speed automatic transmission. The model also gets some nice sporty customizations from Subaru’s STi department.

The Subaru Forester tS comes in black, white, silver and WR Blue. Deliveries are scheduled to start in March 2011 with production limited to just 300 units.
