At What Price Is A Car Good Enough?

This leads to the question... How cheap does a mediocre car have to be before you would consider it?

Meet The Mitsubishi Pajero Evo: The Last Forgotten Homologation Special

All of the great homologation specials — the BMW E30 M3, the Lancia Delta Integrale, the Plymouth Superbird — have all been discovered and cost more and more every year. Except for one.

Charge Your EV When Buying Dried Squid, Green Tea At Japan's FamilyMart 

Do you drive a Nissan, Honda, Mitsubishi, or Toyota electric vehicle? Do you live in Japan? If you don’t, that’s too bad, because the legendary and true convenience of Japanese, uh, convenience stores, or “conbini,” just got even more, well, convenient. You can now “fill up” on electricity when you stop in. It really… » 4/16/15 10:15am 4/16/15 10:15am

What Happens if You Crash One of Those Cars You're Testing? 

I get asked all the time, “What happens if you crash one of those cars you’re testing?” Fair question: I have to pay for it. But that’s not the hardest part. The hardest part is immediately having to get back in another borrowed car and test that. On our trip to New Zealand, in horrible conditions, that’s… » 4/14/15 8:45pm 4/14/15 8:45pm

The Mitsubishi Mirage Outsold The Volkswagen GTI In February 

This is a tale of two hatchbacks, one of which won practically every magazine award possible, the other... is a car that would make most of you want to take the bus. As great as the GTI is, Volkswagen still can't outsell what is arguably one of the saddest companies in the American market, Mitsubishi. » 3/23/15 9:15am 3/23/15 9:15am

Canter Guts Is The Best Truck Name Ever And Could Save Mitsubishi 

It's no secret that Mitsubishi is sort of struggling here in the US market. America hasn't contracted i-MEV mania like everybody (well, technically, nobody) predicted, and it's not like anything else is flying off the lots. They need to do something radical, and the good news is they already have it: the Canter Guts. » 3/10/15 6:10pm 3/10/15 6:10pm

Japan's First Jet Airliner Is Still Shrouded In Misinformation

Recent reports that the Mitsubishi Regional Jet is scheduled to make it's first flight this May were quietly squashed with a notice that this announcement was not from within the company. As the first test flight has already been pushed back three times, does this spreading misinformation point to even more delays? » 2/23/15 4:10pm 2/23/15 4:10pm

If Only Mitsubishi Had The Balls To Build Their Extreme SUV Concept

Mitsubishi VP Don Swearingen sat us down to say Mitsubishi is here to stay [proud and confident! read his teleprompter]. Then a couple dancing robots pulled the cover off the GC-PHEV: an insanely cool high-tech off-roader that just might make their brand cool again if they'd get the gall to make it happen. » 2/12/15 1:21pm 2/12/15 1:21pm

Here's What It's Like To Own A Crazy Rare Mitsubishi 3000GT

Writing for Jalopnik certainly has its perks. For example, it allows me to have a comfortable breakfast in bed while hundreds call me an idiot for saying a Ferrari is a supercar. But on rare occasions, there emerges something truly special, in the form of a super rare '90s Japanese muscle car. Here's what that's like. » 9/25/14 3:16pm 9/25/14 3:16pm

Is this Mitsubishi's slow and undercover return to WRC?

WRX vs. Evo. The battle that is now been fought out in Internet forums, Facebook comments and Youtube videos once took place in the manliest motoring world championship, the WRC. Since 2008, both brands have abandoned the championship. While Subaru has hinted a LMP1 entry recently, Mitsubishi has been awfully quiet… » 9/24/14 4:00pm 9/24/14 4:00pm
