Subaru WRX/STI/Forester 1994-2009

What has happened to all the pre-98 Rexes? Not many years ago the market was stacked with slightly worn but still viable WRX sedans and the odd Hatch, all for under $10K.

| Future classic: Subaru Impreza WRX 

Late-1990s cars still exist in decent numbers, with an excellent STi lookalike selling at almost $30,000 and others making $20K+. Move into the 21st century and the money being realised for WRX sedans again drops below $15,000, but not if you’ve got a genuine STi-plated car.

These in two-door form can exceed $100,000 and sedans make at least $50K. If you grabbed one of the five local 22B STis – or found one overseas to import – the top price seen recently was US$370,000. For performance in a family wagon, a Forester STi turbo costs around $30,000.
