I can see MR2; reminds me of an NSX also. Which is to say that I find it extremely attractive. I look forward to actual pictures.

I'm assuming this would be a 5G Eclipse concept? Or something more upmarket?

Yeah now only if they stick with it this time and actually do the awd!

But I would love a turbo diesel, and even more so if the numbers are true with it having 302 ft/lbs of torque! Throw some propane at the motor and you would be set!

if that ever hits the market, you can bet that it'll be expensive as hell! Although, I would like to see an actual ''for sale'' model in the next year or 2

Cant wait to see it at NAIAS in January :woot:

Maybe the concept for the 5G??? The 4G has been out for 3 model years now.

If you look at the rear end shot it has a lot of porsche caymen in it. Personally it looks pretty badass, now it just needs to really come with the AWD or RWD.

2.2L 4 cyl DOHC Turbo Diesel MIVEC engine capable of 202hp and 309ft/lbs of torque :scratch: im guessing the car is going to be heavy as hell and slow.

i like the car bot hopefully mitsubishi comes with a better idea for the 5g. (performance wise) cause looks are great for my taste

HP doesnt = speed
But the 309ft/lbs of torque makes for a pretty quick little car.
