Mitsubishi Prototype X Concept previews next gen Lancer EVO

The plebeian versions of the Lancer sedan were unveiled to us earlier this week, but the base DE, ES and mildly sporty GTS models are not the versions in which we are particularly interested. That model would be the legendary EVO, and while we're still not privy to its production version yet, Mitsubishi will be bringing this Prototype X Concept to the North American International Auto Show in Detroit to wet our appetites. It looks hot and not at all unlike the various EVO-inspired concepts Mitsubishi has shown us the past year, including the Concept X and the Concept Sportback. The Prototype X even has the exact same three-vent hood of the Concept X, as well as a similar front fascia and rear diffuser. We're betting the Prototype X is a pretty clear indication of what the production version of the next generation EVO will be, which judging from the sketches is just fine with us.
