      How about the 300m Special?

      It had tuned suspension and exhaust note, 18" wheels on wide michelin summer tires, textured skirts, xenons and a nice charcoal/white interior with carbon fiber look trim, imo this was a pretty cool car to drive, it was fast, handled very well and got pretty good gas mileage! Much cooler looking than the current 300c if you ask me, also the interior finishing and the quality of materials were much better too.

      Everytime I see a 300M I feel guilty since I never did appreciate it when it was in production since I especially cannot stand the 300C. The 300M was truly a good looking car

      2005 Impreza 2.5RS Sport. It featured:
      - shorter final drive ratio (4.11 vs. 3.9)
      - WRX high-back seats, Momo leather-wrapped wheel, alloy pedals, 6-speaker/6-disc stereo, side skirts, body-color mirrors
      - STi smooth fog light covers, rather than the gaping holes in other 2.5RS models

      They're not all that rare, but it was a good sendoff for the 2.5RS before it would be softened a bit and turned into the 2.5i. It was basically just a WRX with a 2.5RS engine. Not too many people even know the package existed, since the WRX and STi were grabbing all the headlines.

      The 850CSi went out of production 12+ years ago, and anyone who has forgotten it ought to get their head checked.

      i always dug the SC version of these

      and it was a shame GM put down the best looking product line they had in the late 90's early 00's

      The Prowler was my first love among Automobiles, kind of sucks that they only had a 6 cylinder.

      You guys have some ugly taste, but I always had a soft spot for the 300M.

      This breaches the 10 year mark but I loved the looks of the 1993 Cobra and had forgotten about them until I saw a gorgeous black one on the road last week

      The 840ci were still selling until 1999.(according to wiki)

      The 2003 Mazda Miata Clubsport.

      It's the light weight, rear wheel drive, option deficient car every enthusiast wanted yet took Mazda forever to unload the 50 total produced cars.
