I've always wanted to know how many 2.5 RS's were produced? In America. 1998, 1999, 2000, and 2001 each year. Anybody know?? I saw somewhere 535 2000's were produced but I'm not sure.

There were zero produced in the US, they were all imported from Japan. Only Subarus made in the US wre Outbacks and I think Foresters. The Impreza line has always been built in Japan.

Now, if your asking how many were imported to the US each year, that's a whole different question! And there were a LOT more than 535 in 2000! Looks like that's just the number of coupes with automatics from that year.

Adding those numbers would put you at just over 14,000. It's safe to say at least 4,000 of them have been totaled or taken apart, so that leaves you with 10k left give or take? Educated guess?

I think there are probably more Gen one Dodge Vipers on the road today then there are Gen one Imprezas, interestingly enough.

cheers

^93-01 impreza wagons are still very readily available on the road. I see them often in my area. Impreza L coupes are seen maybe a few times a month. The last time I saw a sedan was over a month ago. The last RS I saw was two weeks ago driven by an old woman. Have seen four vipers this entire year. That's in the tristate area with me driving 500+ miles per week.

They don't have a version, that I know of, for America. But there is a UK website called howmanyleft.com and it tells you how many cars wer originally licensed and how many are left. It's kinda cool to see. I.think there were only like 4 original STi's sold there in 93.
