Bah, I honestly think the EVO was a hail marry pass to stay relevant in an environment where car companies where dropping left and right. GM was being restructured by our crappy government. Ford Was looking shaky, but they managed to sell off Jaguar Volvo and whatever baggage they shouldn't have bought in the first place. Dodge looked like a cheap hooker trying to get fixed up with a rich guy. Saab was falling apart.

I honestly thought Mitsubishi was going to die on the vine. They needed a reason to stay popular and pull people into dealerships. The EVO kept them alive by doing just that. I feel they waited far to long to bring in something fun. They should of brought the EVO over and killed the last gen eclipse with fire.
