2013 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution GSR

Quick Corners And Long Goodbyes Editor's Note: While driving the Mitsubishi Evolution in the slush and snow of a Michigan winter is a fine enterprise, photographing it in such conditions is usually not fruitful. That's why you'll notice a slight disparity between our wintry text and sunny, Arizona-based photographs of the subject car. Rest assured, both the review vehicle and the photo car are of the same basic Evo GSR flavor. It was a dreary, gray, barely sufferable winter morning in Ann Arbor, MI. Temperatures hovering just over 30 degrees allowed for snow or rain or some... Read More

    Video: Mitsubishi Evo can't be tamed by dyno
    1292347860

    Under the right conditions, testing a vehicle on a dyno is a safe way to get a good idea of how much power your engine is producing. It's also an excellent tool for precision tuning, so if you're into squeezing all you can out of your car's beating heart, chance are you're going to be ponying up for time on the rollers. Just make sure that the shop ...

    The Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution is such a good car, it seems that Malaysian automaker Proton decided it ought to offer a version of its own. Sort of. While the company's Jebat Concept, which was just shown off at the Kuala Lumpur Motor Show, is styled to look like the Evolution, it's actually powered by the 237-horsepower, 2.0-liter turbocharged mill ...

    When we think of the best possible ways to market a vehicle, somehow placing it on a floating platform and letting wakeboarders jump over it just doesn't crack the top 10. That didn't stop Mitsubishi from offering up an all-new Lancer Ralliart Sportback for All-ActionSports.com's mid-week wake up. Wakeboarders from all over the U.S. lined up to hit a ...

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 ...

    Mitsubishi to transform Evo XI into diesel hybrid beast
    1276286460

    Mitsubishi was seriously close to axing the 2013 Evo XI completely, a move that would surely break the hearts of many of its die-hard fans. Axing the Evo was not a move that the company wanted to make, but tightening emissions regulations were quickly closing in upon the hallowed Evo, forcing the company to take dramatic steps to keep it alive 'n ...

    Autocar: Next Subaru STI to go diesel, rival Mitsubishi Evo going hybrid
    1276264740

    Rumblings about a diesel-powered Subaru WRX STI first surfaced more than two years ago, and now they're back. The realities of meeting CO2 emissions limits in Europe and elsewhere may have increased the likelihood of a high-performance diesel Subaru, and an oil-burning STI would probably generate at least 200 horsepower and well over 300 pound-feet of ...

    In a letter issued to its customers, Ralliart, a Japanese high-performance subsidiary of Mitsubishi, has announced that it is closing its doors. The company's business case has apparently faded, a victim of the wilting domestic aftermarket scene as well as its lack of continued motorsports involvement. Naturally, we wondered if and how the closure of the ...

Over the past few years, Mitsubishi has been suffering from a degenerative case of bronchial pneumonia, with a side of strep and a nasty rash. In other, less contagious words, Mitsubishi has been faring very poorly during the industry's worst downturn in decades, and it's tough to say if the ...
