The Ten Most Gorgeous Japanese Cars Currently For Sale

They said it couldn't be done. They said compiling a list of ten gorgeous Japanese cars currently for sale was a fool's errand. What they didn't know was that in Japan the cars aren't designed to be as purposeful and uncharismatic as many of their American offerings. In fact, half of the cars on the list are not sold… » 8/25/08 2:00pm 8/25/08 2:00pm

ChargeSpeed Releases Non-Functional Carbon Parts for 2008 Mitsubishi…

Yesterday, we were surprised and relieved to see that the 2008 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution MR managed to package real Evo performance into a package that was both livable and restrained. Now it seems the aftermarket is doing everything possible to counteract both of those qualities with tacky, non-functional carbon… » 7/24/08 12:40pm 7/24/08 12:40pm

2008 Saab Turbo X Priced $11K Higher In Canada, Canadian Car Sales…

Saab has just announced that the 2008 Turbo X — the new range-topping version of their 9-3 sedan — will start at $54,995 — just shy of 55,000 loonies. Do the math and that's $53,898 in real money, $11,388 (USD) more than the car will start at south of the Windsor-Detroit line. Yet vehicle sales in Canada remain strong, … » 4/09/08 5:30pm 4/09/08 5:30pm

Mitsubishi Outlander Gets Evo-Style Twin-Clutch SST Transmission For…

We don't really understand Mitsubishi anymore. They once offered a selection of great cars combining looking good and going fast. In the last couple of years, we've felt like their design department has lost their way, the quality has slipped and the only car worth talking about is a boy-racer sedan with a sticker… » 3/31/08 10:00am 3/31/08 10:00am

LA Auto Show: 2008 Mitsubishi Evolution X in the US of A

Man. 291 horsepower. 300 ft-lb of torque. Super all-wheel this, mega computer controlled that. Hardcore, shark-faced and we've known all about it for a while now. But here's what made us sit up cocker spaniel straight: While the top o' the range EVO MR comes with the flappy paddle DSG (TC-SST in Mitsubishi speak), the… » 11/15/07 1:45pm 11/15/07 1:45pm

Tokyo Motor Show: Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X, Finally

After all of the teases, web reveals and even some tiny show in Sydney — we've finally had the chance to see the new Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X in person here at the Tokyo Auto Show and what can we say that hasn't already been said? Well, we'll add that we thought it was weird for Mitsu to choose the notoriously… » 10/24/07 12:15pm 10/24/07 12:15pm

Spy Photos: 2009 Mitsubishi Evolution X

Our good buddies at the site for Car Fans around the World just snagged shots of what appears to be the Mitsubishi EVO X out in the real world. The very wet real world. So although the folks at Mitsubishi have already done us the great pleasure of providing the production press shots for us and the car's expected to be … » 7/03/07 1:15pm 7/03/07 1:15pm

Spy Photos: Mitsubishi Evolution X?

An "evolving member" of the evolutionm forums just posted some shots of what he thinks may be the Mitsu Evo X tooling around on the 91 with Michigan manny plates. Here's what GlobeCLK has to say: » 6/09/07 3:00pm 6/09/07 3:00pm

That's what the man who snapped the pics had to say — but what do we think? Our gallery of the JDM Evo X below. []

Spy Photos: Mistubishi Evo X

When Mitsubishi showed off the Prototype-X at the Detroit show (gallery below as a reminder) a couple of months ago, everyone and their brother knew it was nothing more than a thinly-disguised Lancer Evo X, or at least we all thought that's what it was. The only problem is that since Detroit, we've seen precious…
