Some day, yes.


But it's not what they need now.


They do two things well: AWD performance cars, and 4WD trucks.


They currently offer neither of those. Instead they are trying to be a "green" company. While I have zero doubt that they can engineer the vehicles, they just won't be able to sell them in the numbers needed to be a franchise in the US.

They have great products, don't get me wrong. There's just no incentive to choose a Mitsubishi over the competition. Bring back the Eclipse and GSX on a modified Eclipse Cross (think Forester being turned into an Impreza) DO NOT put the SST in it. Then bring back the Lancer and a eventually the EVO. But again, have a version without all the fancy diffs, SST etc.... Effectively a RA but with EVO power and handling.
