Revenge of the rally cars: Subaru's Impreza WRX STI and Mitsubishi's Lancer Evolution are gaining market traction | Hagerty Media

Sooner than you think, the U.S. collector car world will experience the same turbocharged rush as the new car market did in 2002 and 2004. Expect the all-wheel-drive, rally-tested Subaru Impreza WRX STI and Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution to scream onto auction stages, spinning to a stop like a scene in Fast and Furious.

One pandemic and a current land war in Europe later, how are these cars doing? I have an Evolution IX (last year for the 4G63 turbo-four, as well a the lithe chassis shared with the Evo VIII) and it's the live-wire real-deal experience for me. However, as I age, I'm finding fast AMGs and blinding GT-Rs more my "speed" (I'm terribly sorry).

Worth it to hold? Completely paid off and in decent shape.
