The Subaru Legacy manufactured in the years of 1993-1997 for the international market ('94-'00 for the North American market) were one of the most powerful model of passenger car the world has seen. After the boom of the Japanese market during the late 1980s and early 1990s, Subaru would develop a vehicle capable of power of Japanese muscle comparable to Nissan's GT-R R32/R33, Mazda's RX-7, and even against it's sister vehicle: the Subaru Impreza WRX and WRX STi.
The Legacy was a car, that came in both wagon and sedan models to rival all similar class vehicles in it's reach against competitor companies. Wagons such as the Mitsubishi Legnum, Nissan Stagea at a later date, and Toyota Caldina/Corona/Crown, were rivaled by this beast of a consumer wagon. With a base kilowatt output of 206kW, Subaru had planned to prove the test of time with one of the most influential cars in modern history; pushing the wagon boom to it's prime.
The Subaru Legacy was a car that was not meant to cater to people who wanted a larger sized vehicle with a sporty look to keep the fun in it, but was catered to people who wanted to have fun in a sporty wagon that was significantly more cheaper than that a higher end sports car unlike a Mistubishi Lancer Evo, Toyota Supra MKIV or Honda Civic Type R. It may be arguably be a better alternative than the Subaru WRX STi.
In its day, it came in a variety of flavours to cater the tastes of buyers, from the subtle trim levels of the L, Brighton, 250T, and TS-R, which were all Naturally Aspirated trims, were the tame side of the higher level trims of the GT, GT-B (Featured a powerful Bilstein suspension to give rigidity of the wagon's power), RS and RS-B, of which the EJ20H and EJ20H were provided in gave a lot of choice of what people wanted.
