Post Limited Production of Evo7 LHD means...

Read that there is limited production of LHD RS-2 Evo7 to only 200 units.

This means that none will get here or only a handful.
Mitsubishi of america certainly wont be able to sell any here, given such small numbers of the car made.

That won't be 200 total units.

It's 200 units of the RS version aka Rally Sport version aka the version that will never get to the States anyway. It's like the WRX STi RA.

You'll see the EVO VII Stateside in a couple years. Mitsu is watching the WRX closely but is still going through EPA/DOT testing.

I'm gonna try and hold out for either a STi version of the WRX or an EVO VII

I wouldnt hold my breath for the real Evo. We will most likely get the Mirage renamed Lancer. With a numbing V6 and "sport" oprions, or some watered down mom-mobile.

I think you'll be proven wrong scoobiejosh.

Mitsu is going to re-introduce the Lancer name as the Sedan version and the Mirage will be the coupe.

Just look @ the response the automotive world has had to the NA version of the WRX. If you read the UK magazines, alot of them like the Lancer EVO better than the WRX.

The current trend is going to sport sedans/wagons and Mitsu has a good chance to take some of Subarus new found glory in the WRX.

Do you think Mitsu would pass up this opportunity to gain more market share???

It will come here...just wait...

If it does we will have defectors. Im still doubtful that even if we get an AWD it will be the Monster it is everywhere else. It will get watered down in some way if it does come, i have no doubt. If it comes here aa the Monster, i will eat my words and buy you a beer, hehe. I hope i do eat my words, as a matter of fact, i would love to see an American EVO eat up a Vette.

I wouldn't touch a lancer. The taint of my buddies talon lingers on. That car spent more time in the shop than it did on the road. Now, before you start moaning and wailing about how they are different models, the lancer and the talon use the same motor, just rotated 180 degrees in the engine compartment. And I shudder at how much MORE the transer case out of an evo would cost over the lousy one in the talon.

RA - you defected already??? how???

IF the EVO came here it won't be as technologically advanced as the JPN Lancer EVO.

We won't get the new electronically adjustable differential & the yaw control system that's on the EVO.

direwlf - The Lancer won't be built in Normal IL where the Eclipse is made...enough said...

I for one would consider an EVO.

MitSubie Gal - just keep the RS, rally that and get an EVO for daily driving. I might do the same in a few years...whether it be a WRX (hopefully STi) or EVO.

Oh to have money. Sigh. I've already "defected" twice. Once from Chevy to Ford. Then Ford to Subaru. If I could have afforded two cars I'd have kept the Ford. Guess I'm stuck with my Subaru for a while. Not that I'm complaining.

OK, who owns the TM Evo that was at the last SCCA meet in Portland? Was that you RA?

Personally, I'm waiting to see if the STI and the EVO make it over in the next few years. If its within 2-3 years, I'll be ready to upgrade by then.

I know the person who owns that red TM Evo but it's not me, though i have almost the same. Almost took mine to PIR that day as well.

Great car to drive but you dont want it as your daily driver...unless you like feeling every bump on the road and love paying a lot of money for gas.

Instant power delivery by stepping on the throttle. Better be able to change gears quick! Very nice car.

What are the price differences between the two? I'd buy the lancer if it was the same as the REX.

Think of the WRX as a benchmark for the compact performance car market in the States.

Mitsu will most likely base the $$$ off the WRX and also the option level.

Have a Nice Day?

From what I read, they are 2 different car aiming at the same market (STi and EVO that is). I would have to say EVO uses more electronics to help the driver drive faster, where as STi is more about driver controlling the car. I agree that EVO has a better suspension tuning than the STi, but the AYC helps a lot in the corners. I wonder how the EVO fairs when you take out the AYC, and put better struts on the STi. With the new looks of the WRX, I would give the EVO7 a try if it ever comes, but an STi will do too (not a normal WRX though)

Damn that would be a real tough decision. The Mitsu looks much better but Subaru's are on the "most reliable list" . Mitsu was not.
