Why Didn't Mitsubishi Offer a Mid-Drive Position On The Mirage?

We've been led to believe that the driver's seat on street cars should be one side or the other, but why? Team Mid-Drive Crisis converted their LeMons Mirage to mid-drive, and we can see that the advantages outweigh the disadvantages. » 3/20/10 3:00pm 3/20/10 3:00pm

What's It Like To Road Race An Automatic-Equipped Mitsubishi Mirage?

Woman Keeps Test Driver to Avoid Heat

In New Zealand, stealing a Mitsubishi Mirage carries only a penalty of 100 hours of community service if you've got a good excuse. A mother from Tauranga decided to test drive the Mirage after looking at a few cars and just decided to not come back because it was "too hot to walk."
