it's the most visceral car you can buy today

Are you serious? How about a Lotus Exige or Caterham 7, or even a Scion FR-S (Toyota 86)? In what way is it "the most visceral car" - maybe you should look the meaning up so you actually understand it.

It is good news that cars can still be made with only the bare minimum of electronic, automatic, thingamabobs. I'm sure i'd sit in that car and immediately deactivate traction control (if i wasn't worried about a warranty) and start doing rediculous things in an empty parking lot. NO WAY would i buy this car EVER. I'd shred that mitsubrassy transmission too quick, contstantly trying to improve shift times. But i'd drive someone else's all day.This sort of car needs to live, as an example of how much you can stretch a 4cyl into tire-shredding fun.

I love the Evo but close to 40k on a car with econobox roots, no matter how fast, is a fools errand. Especially considering its shortcomingd
Michael Dickerson
Meh. Rather have an 8 or a 9. The 10 has become too big of a car.
Adam Axell Neujahr
The people who say this car is too expensive have not experienced the type of ownership that it was meant for. It is a faster, quicker, and more capable car than anything the price. Comfort, elegance, and public opinion were not on the design table. Well said Automobile..."Not for everyone."
Craig Stishenko
Nice words David.. I would love to DRIVE ONE
Deberra Cassidy
Small, fast great car! Your right not for everyone... Think it's one of mitshubishi's better cars.
Hamid Se
I Disliked It is very simple and repetitive
Dammy Onafowokan
Awesome car, faaaar too expensive.
Todd Clayton
They are not pulling out of the US. Suzuki pulled out.
Geoff Ekenstam
The Evo and Outlander Sport are the only things people buy from this company...the Evo isn't worth the price tag and the Outlander Sport needs a turbo option...
Alex Marks
i could easily tell a EVO8 or 9 from a standard lancer but its hard to tell a standard lancer from a Lancer EVO now.
Terence Stawski
But according to the auto magazines you said this will be the last year of Mitsubishi in the USA.
Scott A Purvis
I sure hope Mitsubishi can hang on in the U.S. I hear they may exit the U.S. market?
