Wait, Is Subaru Bringing Back The WRX Hatchback?

The 2015 Subaru WRX has turned out to be an impressive performer and a worthy update to a car we all love. But it's been a disappointment in the body department, first because it didn't look like the white-hot concept from last year and then because Subaru announced a hatch version wasn't in the cards.
