Why Does The WRX STI Hold Value So Well?

The Subaru WRX STI is one of the most popular Japanese performance cars ever. Although the current WRX STI is a big improvement on the STIs of the 1990s/2000s from the perspective of creature comforts and safety features, the formula hasn’t really changed much in almost three decades – and we think that the STI … Read more

If you’ve been following classic car prices … Read more

Is Mitsubishi Bringing Back The 3000GT?

In our opinion, the Mitsubishi 3000GT (also known as the GTO in some markets) is one of the unsung heroes of 1990s Japanese performance motoring. Due to its GT nature (read our article here on what GT means in cars – the 3000GT was never built to be a track monster) it was often overshadowed … Read more

Is Mitsubishi Bringing Back The Evo?
