Bye, Bye, Evo? Mitsubishi ready to pull Evo's plug

We have all manner of unofficial metrics in the auto industry. No doubt you've heard some of them, like the butt dyno. Another popular measure is the smiles-per-dollar index - how entertaining is a car versus its price. Cars like the Mazda MX-5 Miata, Scion FR-S and Mini Cooper S, for example, score quite highly, while vehicles like the BMW M5 or Audi RS7 are great to drive, but score lower because of their much higher price tags. For a long time, the king of the smiles-per-dollar index was arguably the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X, which blended hair-raising thrills for the price of a we... Read More

    Official: Mitsubishi 311RS Evo X limited-edition has arrived
    1363011300

    It's not terribly often that we have news to report coming out ahead of the Minneapolis Auto Show. We say that not to disparage the Twin Cities, which are lovely, but new product reveals are few and far between for the show. This year, however, it seems that event will play host to the debut of a rather special limited edition Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution ...

    Caution: Slippery when wet! Generally speaking, such signs are placed where pedestrians may be crossing on hard-surface flooring, perhaps right after it was washed. But the same is sometimes true on asphalt, and the four tires of the Mitsubishi Evo seen after the break are just as susceptible to slipping and sliding as the bottom of your shoes. Slipping ...

    Video: Mitsubishi Evo IX goes airborne at 2011 Targa Tasmania
    1302737100

    Apparently, "left four and a half after crest" is code for 'hold on tight!' Kym Illman and co-driver Kirrilee Gentleman were cruising along a late stage of the 2011 Targa Tasmania. Their Mitsubishi Evo IX was running well and Gentleman was shouting out the guidance so Illman could keep pushing. Apparently, however, the pair got mixed up on one crucial ...

    Review: 2010 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X MR Road Test Review
    1288599840

    One of the Best Driving Cars in Existence I have a few favourite sports cars -- Porsche 911, Nissan GT-R and BMW M3. And Mitsubishi's Lancer Evolution MR is right up there at the top of the list. A sedan as a sports car? Absolutely. It just has to be there. With all due respect, until the majority of sports car makers can build a coupe or roadster ...

    Review: 2010 Mitsubishi Lancer Sportback Ralliart takes aim at the competition
    1280350080

    There has always been a glaringly obvious gap in Mitsubishi's current Lancer lineup. On the bottom is the... Lancer, a biggish-for-its-class economy car that no one particularly likes – at least that's what the sales charts would indicate. It's slow, filled with cheap plastics and dull. It hasn't even proven to be all that reliable by Japanese ...
