As types of automobile go, you can’t get much more sensible than a station wagon. Roomier than a coupe or a sedan but more agile and efficient than a crossover or SUV, the noble station wagon is quite possibly the best all-around body style in all of autodom. And we know we speak for many of our fellow American gearheads when we say we dearly, dearly hope our compatriots eventually realize the error or their ways in forsaking station wagons, first for minivans, then SUVs and, most recently, crossovers.
And to help persuade our countrymen and countrywomen that sedan-based-squarebacks deserve another chance, we’ve assembled the following list of 20 sports cars trapped in station wagon bodies. These boom-juice-drinking centaurs truly are the motoring world’s way of having your cake and eating it too, allowing you experience spine-tingling driving dynamics one day, and the soul-uplifting and life-affirming thrill of being able to haul a two-year supply of salad croutons home from Costco the next. Here, without further ado and in a 93% random order, they are.
