12: Subaru WRX
Similar to the Saab the Subaru shares its sheet metal with, the WRX is the more popular of the two cars and the go-to car for tuners. The WRX has a famous boxer engine coupled with an intercooled turbocharger. The overall design of the WRX has remained very similar for decades. The winning formula is its lightweight design. Interior-wise, you get a barebones basic car, but the performance more then makes up for the shortcomings.
Nowadays, it can seem difficult to find a truly clean example of a WRX. Part of the reason for this is that most of these cars have been heavily modified and driven hard. But if you’re lucky enough to find a gently-used WRX, you’ll be in for a winning driving experience. The car has some of the best driving characteristics of any car on the road, and that’s partly why it’s a popular choice.
