Subaru WRX/ STI 1994-2003

Unique Cars - - REVIEW -

De­mand for turbo-en­gined Subarus has slumped and now might be the time to pounce if you have al­ways wanted a WRX. Early cars are down a bit in num­bers but prices still have barely moved since 2013 so ne­go­ti­ate on good cars and ig­nore bad ones. An out­stand­ing 1994-97 sedan will be hard to find yet cost $12,000 or less. STI [Subaru Tech­nica In­ter­na­tional] Type R two doors are scarce but apart for the lim­ited-pro­duc­tion 22B model the most col­lectible of ‘pro­duc­tion’ WRXs. ‘Bug­eye’ cars built from 2000-02 caused con­tro­versy but seem­ingly not a sales slump be­cause there are plenty around. Cur­rently they cost the same as early ver­sions but that odd­ball ap­pear­ance might work in their favour as the years roll by.
