Default How many 2004-2007 GD STI's have survived?

https://www.hagerty.com/media/car-pr...PV9GhDKTiC9h7c


So now that official production run numbers have been released by subaru this month, with a break down for each year of 2004-2007 STI's produced and how many of each color for each year.....it begs the question how many have survived over the past 17 years?????

Values of the 2004-2007 STI's are up 40% over the past 2 years...with good condition mostly stock versions with 100,000 miles selling for $15,000+ and 40-60 thousand mile original versions going for $25,000...the demand for these original U.S STI's would indicate that there are significantly LESS that have survived than were originally produced and even less that are in decent condition.

Thoughts?

Personally, I'm not surprised that prices are rising. These were the Shelby GT350s of the early 2000s. With the wave of BEVs, etc., older analog cars are becoming more desirable, just like pony and muscle cars during the 90's.

My old man still has his '07 STi, WRB/Gold, and well under 100k, but by no means was it babied (dual-driver autox car for several seasons, driven to work at ski resorts, etc.). It will never leave our family.

2007 WRB/G is a 1/800 build? Now THAT surprised me! The per-year production of that color combo is less than that per-year-average build rate of my '87.5 Subaru RX, and they only build 2,600 of those. I've been harping on him for years to lay off the STi and put the daily miles on their Mk1 Tundra. Looks like I'll need to start looking at cosmetic restoration before parts become expensive/scarce.

It would be interesting to see a similar breakdown for the GD WRX. I could see a first-year, low mileage, MT, unmodified WRX in WRB being pretty close to collector STI money one day. It was THE car that seriously kicked off the power wars of the 2000s+, after the doldrums of the late 90s.

There's zero chance STis will approach GT-R money, but I'm not at all surprised to see them appreciating... Just didn't expect it to be so soon.

Neat article, hoping for more!

I have a 2005 with 118k that almost was taken out in November. $8500 worth of body damage in a 25mpg zone and there's suspension issues that still need to be addressed

Nissan made sure of that by bumping the MSRP price of GTR'S over the years to double what they were when they first started selling them, and making versions that cost 1 million dollars LOL.

The GD STI's arent depreciating anymore. They are APPRECIATING in value and fast, for any of the decent ones that are left. I think they will be getting 50-60 G's for very low mileage examples over the next 3 years and beyond.

Just over 25,000 GD STI's were sold in the U.S for the 4 years of production....that is VERY low production. My guess is only half of those are left and even less than that are in good+ condition.

KBB on my 97,000 mile 06 is over 16,000. I got it with 27,000 miles on it in 2009, I'm second owner no accidents all original driveline, nice paint, all orignal body panels, only mods are a cobb stage 2 tune and 3" turbo back. Also have a perrin inlet but only installed that because the OE plastic inlet tore, as they are notorious for doing at the rubber seal at the turbo inlet.

That would ALL be red flags for me; unless the owner was willing to get the car through smog inspection before purchase (which most likely means, here in Cali, bolting the stock downpipe back to the car and, *maybe*, taking off that Perrin inlet and replace with OEM inlet).
Also, I'd get a compression AND leak down test, at a minimum. Not taking any chances on anything with a used EJ25 turbo; I know better.

Its also interesting to see the low relative production numbers for STI's with Gold Wheels and some of the low production paint color combos for Gold Wheel STI's. My 06 for example....1 of 625 for 2006 with gold wheels and obsidian black pearl relative to mid 900's for OBP with silver wheels.

White 07's with Gold wheels are super rare. 2006 and 2007 have the lowest production numbers out of the 4 year GD run. These cars are now collectible level the attrition rate I would think is quite high 17 years later. I wonder if Hagerty would gander how many have survived?

Not red flags for me lol. It was 100% factory stock when i got it in 2009 with only 29,000 miles on it. Oil has been changed every 3000-3500 miles all this time, and i have EVERY date documented for literally anything i did to the car maintanence wise from something simple as replacing a push clip on the undertray to upgrading the clutch. Has the original airbox, injectors fuel pump etc. Accessport is a bonus; great diagnostic and maintanence tool in addition to the performance tuning options. The datalogs are also a plus as they show no knocking or overboost etc etc...never had a single issue in that regard, from stage 1 in 2012 to when i went stage 2 2018.

Bro...
That thread is from 2016...the STI production numbers for the GD years from 2004-2007 were just only made public this month. This thread is about those numbers, and how.many GD STI's are left out of the original 25000 2004-2007 cars built. Lets keep this one going here exclusively for these.metrics rather than sunbaru values in general..

I am.the happy owner of 1 out of 625 obp gold wheeled STI built in 2006!!!
