When Mitsubishi finishes up a generation of the Evo, they tend to give the car a limited edition send off. According to one Mitsubishi executive, this last Evo X will be no different. But what exactly is going to be special about it?

Here's the line from exec Don Swearingen from his live Q&A with us ongoing at the moment. He was responding to a question asking if there's be an Evo after this one.

There are currently no plans for an Evo XI.

We do plan on launching a special edition in June/July of next year as a going away edition. It's a GSR 5-speed. More horsepower, some suspension tuning, and some bits pieces that are still being finalized. Around 2,000 units will be available.

We're very happy that the Evo is living as long as it is. Yeah, we're going to miss the Evo when it's gone, but at least it sounds like it's going out with a bang.
