Post Evo VII

I just got back from the New York International Auto Show. The great news is that Mitsubishi has two of the Lancer Evo VII's on display, Tommi's Rally Car and a red road-going car.

The bad news is that the Lancer coming here is NOT that car. The US-bound Lancer is NOT what everyone thinks or expects.

The 2002 Lancer is coming in 3 models, the ES, LS and OZ Rally Edition. All three are powered by the cast-iron 2.0 rated at 120bhp and 130ft-lbs. All three models are FWD. The OZ Rally Edition comes with 15" OZ wheels and the requisite OZ logos, and gets by with the same disc/drum (Yes, DRUM!) brake combination that is available on the other Lancer cars.

Editorial: This car is so LAME that it isn't funny! The only thing lamer than the Lancer OZ Rally Edition is that Lexus commercial where they're rallying.

The Mistubishi booth was directly next to the Subaru booth, and Subaru made Mitsubishi look like they were producing inferior cars...which they are if they expect to sell "Sporty" sedand with 15" wheels and Drum brakes.

Just my thoughts.

and to quote the front page:

04-12-01: <FONT COLOR="red">Very Important!</FONT c> We all know that Mitsubishi might be bringing the EVO VII over to the US and we all know that Subaru is working on bringing the STi WRX over here too. If you don't know that, then read this: yes, they are planning on it. We have all read R&T, C&D and Motor Trend magazines, so for God's sake, PLEASE STOP POSTING ABOUT IT ON THE MESSAGE BOARD. It has been posted like 100 times already.
