EVO 311RS

There is no question that the Mitsubishi Evo is one helluva performer in stock form. It puts out decent power, has all-wheel drive, and with a dual-clutch transmission, is an absolute pistol to drive fast. Modify these little beasties though and well, they have a tendency to go “POP”… And not in a good way. Matt Farah of The Smoking Tire and /TUNED recently got his hands on Ryan Gates’s 311RS Evo with the goal of seeing if a highly tuned EVO could not only push the boundaries of performance, but keep its reliability as well.

Nissan Optima

The Nissan Altima and the Mitsubishi Eclipse, two cars that are simply not worthy of partaking in racing of any kind. A few poor souls however feel differently and because of this decided to release their inner Ricky Bobby and Cole Trickle to the world. The results, as you can imagine, were not good.

Evo Snow Drift

The temperature here in Northern, CA is supposed to hit an unseasonably hot 95 degrees this afternoon. That means old cars will over heat, people will go to the beach, and air conditioners throughout the region will be set on full blast. This is not a bad thing mind you, however it does make me think back to those snow filled days of winter when I lived in New York. Well, actually, the weather doesn’t make me think of that as much as the video you’re about to see does.

Enjoy.

Winter Driving: Mitsubishi EVO Accident

Mitsubishi EVO Avoids Accident

Avoiding an accident usually comes down to a combination of skill behind the wheel and a shitload of luck. Sprinkle in some bad weather and the odds of you getting out unscathed are pretty slim. Sometimes however the stars align and the Gods of traffic and goodwill smile upon you. Take the driver of this Mitsubishi EVO for example. While rolling along in some unsavory weather the driver comes across a pile-up thanks to some unseen black-ice. Never losing his head, he’s able to steer clear of the majority of the mayhem and limp away. Now, did he get away without any damage? Well no, but he did exhibit some great skills behind the wheel that kept he and his ride from getting completely waffled.

2012 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport SE: RideLust Review

Posted in Car Reviews, Featured, Import Review, Mitsubishi, RideLust Review by Kurt Ernst | June 25th, 2012 | Leave a Reply |

2012 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport

Thumbs Up: It’s good looking and priced right, panoramic glass roof

Thumbs Down: Interior panel fit, oddly poor fuel economy

Buy This Car If: You like the styling and get a good enough deal

Unless you’ve been around the industry as long as we have, it would be easy to forget that Mitsubishi was once a full-line retailer, selling everything from compact pickups to luxury sedans and even some impressively advanced GT cars. In the early 1990s, models like the Mitsubishi Eclipse GSX and the Mitsubishi 3000 GT VR4 defined compact performance, while the Mitsubishi Galant VR4 was a surprisingly capable sport sedan, disguised as a mere grocery-getter.

Mitsubishi 3000GT Crawls Under School Bus

Mitsubishi 3000GT

Unless you are unaware there are some inherent dangers with driving a performance vehicle. First off they sit a bit on the low side, second they’re visibility is generally not the greatest, and third, from a safety standpoint, they tend not to be the best. Case in point; the Mitsubishi 3000GT you see here. At first glance one would think that this accident resulted in a fatality, but surprisingly enough the owner walked away. The car however, that’s a different story completely. Click through for the video and check it out.

Volkswagen Golf R vs Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution MR

EVO vs Golf R

The 2012 Volkswagen Golf R and 2012 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution MR, would at first glance, seem like fierce rivals. I mean they both pack similar power; the EVO 291-hp and the Golf R 256-hp, however when it comes to price the EVO MR simply heads toward the stratosphere. For comparison, the Golf R is priced at around $37,000, whereas the EVO is around $45,000! That’s a huge number for any car, but whereas the Golf R’s price can be somewhat justified by a wonderful ride and stellar interior, the EVO MR is simply a junkie econo-box with a big engine and DCT gearbox. On the track though things change. You see this is where the EVO shines and the Golf R falls dead thanks to VW killing it with all the electronic nannies. Honestly, I’ve driven them both and if I were going to spend 35k on a new car, I’d go right to my Ford dealer and buy a 2013 Mustang GT with the track pack.

Sorry Volkswagen and Mitsubishi, but you still need to work a bit harder.

Mecum To Drop The Hammer On The Last Mitsubishi Eclipse

The final Mitsubishi Eclipse. Image: Mecum Auctions

The Mitsubishi Eclipse has been around for 22 years and four generations, and in the early part of its life, the car defined “affordable performance.” The first and second generation cars could be had with either front-wheel-drive or all-wheel-drive, and the AWD cars (and their badge engineered cousins, the Eagle Talons) dominated both club and pro racing for years.

Mitsubishi Sends Off The Eclipse

Image: Mitsubishi

In the end, Mitsubishi’s storied Eclipse is being removed from life-support and sent into that good night not with a performance and handling package worthy of the name, but with a trim and content package designed to maximize value. The car that began its life racking up road racing trophies across the world is being retired with some paint, stitching and vinyl decals that make up the SE (“Special Edition”) package. Perhaps the ultimate in irony is that SE cars will only be offered with a four-speed automatic transmission, so don’t expect the cars to return either world class performance or even reasonable fuel economy.
