Here's a post all the domestic-or-nothing crowd should enjoy reading. Of the 10 most expensive cars to insure as listed by Insurelane, only one is American-made, and it's no longer produced. And on the least expensive list, seven are Big Three branded (nine if you count Volvo and Mazda as Fords).

It should come as no surprise that the Mitsubishi Lancer Evo and Subaru WRX aren't cheap to protect, while GMC Safari and Pontiac Montana owners can probably pay their premiums with the half-eaten Cheerios found in their back seats.

As we all know, lots of factors determine your personal rate (age, driving record, number of cars you've totaled right there in your insurance agent's parking lot, etc.), but imports will generally have higher rates over comparable domestics due mostly to more expensive replacement parts.

See the top five on each list after the jump.
