1999 Subaru Impreza 2.5RS
There seem to be too few Impreza 2.5RSes left. They’ve either been thrashed into oblivion, modified beyond recognition, or rusted to nothing. The US never got the WRX turbocharged engine in this first-generation (GC8) chassis, though many tuners have corrected that on their own. It’s arguably the best looking of all the Imprezas, and the bodystyle most associated with the iconic rally driver Colin McRae.
Our vote? Restore this to as new. The 2.5RS is a fun car to drive even without turbocharged power, and there are enough overbuilt cars out there. A clean, stock car will always turn heads. It needs some body work, but nothing that should be too challenging.
It’s on eBay in Arizona with no reserve.
