None of these cars are rare at all, maybe closest to being rare would be an automatic 5 speed STI which is available in Japan.

God damn, a mass produced modern day car is nothing rare.

A 9-2x is rare.
a limited trim model from a regular popularly marketed for over a decade with a different badge is not rare. Uncommon, sure. Not stateside, yes.

But not rare at all. You can pop into a Subaru Japanese dealer, lay down several million yen and roll out with a new #204/400 Subaru WRX STI Spec $*$*$ &&& which they release in yearly intervels as a marketing tool.

If you don't believe me, go to Japan and buy one yourself.

Most of these cars are XXX/400, how many 9-2X were built again?

yes, the are avaible in Japan and some places in Europe... i have been living here in Japan since 99.. and only seen a hand full of these cars. now i ask you this kribykirb... have you seen any these cars rolling up to the average 7 eleven or to the local familymart/lawson or at local gas stations? have you seen any of these rolling on the streets in America or even in Japan? it's not everyday you'll see these cars out and about. i don't know if you have been to Japan. but all i'm am just saying it is rare to see them hence "Rare".

i have also seen a few Ferrari's, lamborghini and other foreign sports car out there. even the new coverttes and american muscle is rare to see out in Japan. it's not rare to you if you see american muscle since they are on every street in America. but over here, it is very rare. it's like saying "the F1 Mclaren isn't rare.. i see them everyday in Germany!"

10,346 Saab 9-2Xs were manufactured during the entire production run. The production for the 2005 model year accounts for most of these (8,514 total, about 58% Linear/42% Aero). The remaining 1,832 were produced for the 2006 model year (approximately 82% 2.5i/18% Aero).

Did you just call the 9-2X rare?

Wait, and you called cars like the Spec C Ra-R and S204 not rare?

i love my V2 STi here in the pacific northwest i'd gladly sell it to one you 'muricans in another 8 years when it becomes legal down there. buuuuuut you'd have to do KPH-MPH conversions on the fly as its only marked in KPH
