That’s a one-of-15 Porsche 924 GTS Clubsport chasing a Lancia Stratos chasing a Lancia 037, shot from a Lancia Delta S4. There are good days, then there are good days.

The 2003-2006 Toyota Matrix XRS was equipped with the wonderful 2ZZ-GE engine that cranked out 180 hp from 1.8 liters and was paired to a mandatory six-speed manual. The Matrix weighed only 2800 lbs and had more cargo room than the Subaru WRX wagon. Good times.
