CC Outtake: Two Rare Subarus

CC 230 078 1200

It was the Subaru gen2 Leone hatch that initially caught my eye. It’s the stablemate of the hardtop we looked at the other day. But now that I really look at this picture, I realize how rare these first “bug eye” WRXs have become. I guess they all got beat to an early death by their boost-jacking youthful owners. I lusted after one of these; the WRX was a serious “game changer” when it first appeared, in a class of its own, in terms of an unbeatable price-performance equation. And this one looks very unmolested. Is that a “For Sale” sign on the window?
