The Subaru SVX was produced between 1991 up to 1997 when production was cut due to low sales. Only around 14,00 where sold in the US. It was equiped with a 3.3liter Flat6 engine that gave the car 230HP at 5,400 rpm and 228 ft.lbf of torque at 4,400 rpm. Though "powerful", the SVX weighed in at nearly 3600lbs and came only with a 4speed automatic transmission.

Well in America it came with 4 speed autos, you could get them with 6 speed manual in JA PAN though.

They're definately cool though.

They're quirky and bizarre and therefore cool. The kind of car that the unwashed masses would sneeze at but also piques the interest of the gearhead. It helps that they were pretty good, too.

Trivia. The reason why they have the little half windows is because when the car was in development and it had full windows, the back glass would blow open at about 120 mph.

Also I have quoted an SVX owner as saying that you can have the windows all the way down in the rain at 100 mph and be as dry as a bone.

Uncool, because I have trouble saying "cool" for any sporty car that only came with a four-speed auto. Also, Subaru flat sixes aren't as cool as their turbo flat fours.

Uncool because of the auto-box and luxuryness of the interior...Wood panel everywhere! Other than that its a cool car but those just hurt it so badly.

I'm not gonna hold back the cool rating just because the only transmission availabe in the US was an auto. Especially considering the 6-speed was available in other regions. So I give it a solid cool.

My buddy used to have one. This car would have been so much better if it had a manual transmission and wasn't so darn heavy.

Disgustingly uncool because someone 45 year old Somalian woman in my neighbourhood has one and she couldn't drive if her life wanted her to.

I see one parked at work. It's a nice car, very clean looking as well. I won't give it a sub-zero due to the fact that Subaru think that Americans only like Autos, but it is cool.
