SUPER POTENTIAL! The Ad That Launched a Million Random References

Anything with lasers has got to be good. Space queens from galaxies of the distant future shooting blue lasers from their fingertips are that much better. The star of this commercial is of course the turbo specialty sports coupe called Starion. If Mitsubishi would just take whatever engine and turbo they're going… »12/14/06 1:04pm12/14/06 1:04pm

Cannonball Run II: Not Good, But, Starion Afterburner!

Not only is there an extended scene of Jackie Chan's Starion crossing from San Pedro to Long Beach, but he then uses his afterburner to elude capture. It's a tossup between this car, Clarkson's infamous pseudo-rally car and Uncle Bumbeck's Battlecar Galactica as to which is the coolest Starion of them all. »11/28/06 12:30am11/28/06 12:30am

Why Mitsubishi Deserves a Second Chance in America

Yes, we all know that Mitsu is a somewhat beleagured brand these days. But they did give us the mighty Starion, the totally underrated Mirage Turbo hatchback, and of course, the nothing-short-of-obscenely miraculous Lancer Evo.

And then take us for a ride. »11/09/06 2:30am11/09/06 2:30am

SUPER ENGINE-EXTRACTION POTENTIAL! Bumbeck's Starion Goes Under the Wrench

Yeah, whatever, schmoes. Bumbeck is manly enough to yank his own 2.6L Hemi — with hood-removal assistance from Coonce — and live to tell about it. Soon, the Mighty Starion shall rise, relieved of its Achilles' Jet Valves. And your boots? Well, they'll just have to get used to your quaking in them. Deal with it. »9/23/06 2:30am9/23/06 2:30am

Hoon of the Day: Look Out Honey, 'Cause He's Using (Turbo) Technology

There are few things we love more than Mitsubishi Starions and the Stooges. One comes from Japan. The others come from Michigan (except, of course, for Watt, who reps Pedro harder than anyone else). Together, we suppose, if they decided to rock it Voltron-style, with Iggy forming the head, they would become the… »8/16/06 4:30pm8/16/06 4:30pm
