Illustration for article titled Hooray! Mitsubishi Isnt Killing The Lancer Evolution

Our rally bred hearts have been aching since we heard that this would be the end of the line for Mitsubishi's slidey yobbo machine. But no! Mitsu isn't murdering the rally weapon yet. Keep your eyes open, Subaru.

The report comes from AutoGuide, who say an official at Mitsubishi confirmed that the Evo will be around for at least one more year. Production on 2015 model year cars is set to begin in July.


It will be the eighth year of production for the Evo X, which makes it kind of ancient compared to the 2015 Subaru WRX STI, a simply fantastic car.

Still, Mitsubishi is dashing its hybrid and electric dreams to keep enthusiasts happy and to steal a little bit of thunder from Subaru. You know, something that is actually important, not saving carbon emissions.
