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.

      "One that must be close to the top is the S2000. Insurance rates on it scared me away."

      I dunno; insurance is something like $500 a year for my S2000. Collision, not just liability.

      #6...I was wondering that same thing. But I also remember that there were long wheelbase and short wheelbase versions. Also, there was an AWD version. That could have something to do with it being on the list twice.

      Anyways, my Regal is only like $75 a month to insure. And anything import, around here at least, will probably make you homeless within six months.

      my MKV Jetta (2.5 VE) is shocking cheap to insure, and really fun to drive. Good deal i think!

      and of course the SRT-4 is expensive to insure; they're driven almost entirely by retards.

      Nice list! It looks like that I won't be able to get any of those cars in the next 5 years, though I would glad to have one. I also wanted to share something since you guys like expensive cars. http://most-expensive-automobiles.blogspot.com/

      I thought my base G6 was going to make my insurance go up from my Neon SXT but it got a lot better.

      The reason why the SRT4 is expensive is because of its speed. Its just a flat out fast car for the money. Unfortunately like that and almost all of the neon line if you are in a moderate axident the car is pretty much totaled....

      You might as well buy a more expnsive car that has cheaper insurance, like, as mentioned above, the Porsche 911 Turbo being cheaper to insure than an EVO. In the end, you end up paying about the same price for the EVO and the 911, because the pricy insurance on the evo catches up with the price of a 911.



      Think of the EVO insurance as a lease with a LARGE down payment

      What's a Bugatti VEYTON? Ha, ha, ha. Douche.

      Too funny. My car is both on the Top Ten Most Expensive to Insure AND Top Ten Most Stolen. Still, I only pay around $100/month for full coverage on 2 cars even though I live in the middle of a city and park on the street....
