    You called the Contour a midsize sedan, then a minute later you say it was more expensive than any other American subcompact sedan. Thats probably cuz it wasnt a subcompact. Not even close.

    A car that belongs on this list is the Pontiac G8. Before the comments start flowing, the SS was trying to revive the G8. But the G8 GXP. I’ve driven it and can tell you it was an American M5 (when the M5 was worth talking about).

    My Ford Focus ST just resulted in engine failure a few months ago. Which I found out isn't that uncommon of a problem with them, I've been waiting since January 3rd to get it replaced. Luckily they said two more weeks and the engine replacement will be free. I still recommend one definitely if you can find one with low enough mileage to be covered under warranty. Due to how many were overproduced they're cheap for what you get.

    So where is the 2005-2006 SAAB 9-2X? GM had partially owned Fuji Heavy Industries install an IKEA interior and true Euro handling and ride in an Impreza, and unlike most such badge-engineered projects, the 9-2X truly brought the best of both worlds, SAAB refinement and WRX performance, including 0.86g skidpad cornering. SAAB only sold about 10,500 units including Linear, 2.5i, and Aero trim levels. They are now less expensive than the corresponding Subaru models, a fine investment in cheap wheels.

    The svt was awesome I had the 24 valve and a svt right when the fast and the furious came out. It was great already had a body kit was black with black leather interior. I threw some rims and a wing on her and was riced up ready to go. I thought I was the shit back when I was 17. Drove the 24 valve during the week and the svt when I wanted to get fast and furious in the Walmart parking lot at the week end car meets every Saturday. They were the good ol days. That first car they showed was bad ass and the as would make a perfect sleeper.

    I thought I was going to make the whole list but the Airflow was a curve ball. Aside from the Airflow and the Avante I've seen at least one of each of the rest somewhere in my travels over the years, hell I saw a 9-7 Aero this afternoon on my commute. I gotta say though, seeing a yellow LFA in person and hearing that V10 ripping was probably the highlight from the list cars here.

    You forgot the UPCOMING 2012 Hyundai Kona N. I had money down at a dealership thinking it was AWD, and I had to pull it when finging out it is 2WD. I own a tuned and lowered 1.6T AWD Kona. www.hyundaikonaforum.com/showcase/2018-kona-awd-1-6t-lowered.1162/ (scroll) We found out through people looking under Hyundai Kona N test mules, it is 2WD. About 9 other people I know who were gong to buy it, NOW are not going to buy it because it is a 2WD LIFTED hot hatch. Who wants a LIFTED hot hatch, NOT ME!!!!!!!! Top Gear UK said in a recent article Hyundai decided early on in the Kona N development to nix the AWD. Why, because they are cheapskates. They are said to be listed for more money then a Veloster N and i30 N. Hyundai FAILED FAILED FAILED on this one. A LIFTED overpriced 2WD hot hatch. It COULD of been a nice car for a cheaper Golf R competition.

    Regarding the Chevy SS you don’t know what you’re talking about. GM restricted the number of LHD units it shipped from the Elizabeth WA Holden factory. It was never intended to be a volume seller. Over the 4 years it actually exceeded its sales targets selling approx 13,000 over its 4 year run. GMs targets were 3000 units per year. The car is a classic and depreciation will be very low as it is so desirable.
