The Subaru Legacy Still Holds This Incredible Speed Record from 1989

As of spring 2025, the Subaru Legacy is dead, and we are all sad. But maybe not too sad. The Legacy doesn’t really sell in appreciable quantities anymore. There are more efficient and attractive offerings out there, such as the new Toyota Camry, and, generally speaking, the mid-size sedan segment is as unfashionable in this modern era as polyester pants or lane discipline. The Legacy delivered on its mission, and now it is time to… Read More →

Subaru’s All-Wheel-Drive Obsession Began with the Pipsqueak FF-1

This may just be the rarest you’ll see this week. It’s a Subaru FF-1 – sometimes called the Star in the US market.
