Good morning! Welcome to The Morning Shift, your roundup of the auto news you crave, all in one place every weekday morning. Here are the important stories you need to know.
Happy Halloween, everybody. Want some real terror to make you jump ten feet in the air and possibly soil your pants? This is it. Watch a man somehow avoid getting wounded by his own third gear.
Only Mitsubishi would have the gall to call its new electric SUV concept an e-Evolution. Sure, it’s not a Lancer Evolution, but having the word ‘Evolution’ in a car with a Mitsubishi badge raises certain expectations. And now it’s on this storied but troubled company to meet them.
Mitsubishi Electric, which you know as the manufacturer of delightful household products like refrigerators and vacuum cleaners (and not to be mistaken for Mitsubishi Motors), made a car! Well, a concept car. And you know what? It looks aight.
We don’t hate Mitsubishi. We just choose to remember the better times.
No car I have driven epitomizes everything that’s wrong with cars today more than the 2017 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport. It’s irritating to drive and isn’t even comfortable. Yet its worst sin is what it represents: the phasing out of a segment that got many of us into cars in the first place in favor of half-baked…
When it comes to the cars, some days are good. Some days are full of fun and exciting and nice news that keeps me optimistic about the future. And then on other days, I wake up to find the latest Mitsubishi Evolution concept is an electric crossover with AI assistance. Here’s something to cleanse the palate.
Here’s the teaser image for the revived Mitsubishi Evolution: it’s going to be an electric crossover! And some days I’m not sure why I get out of bed.
You thought there was an escape from the brands, didn’t you? You thought that somehow, some way, the interstellar regions of our universe weren’t polluted with that kind of earth-like junk, yes? But you were wrong. Oh, were you wrong. The total solar eclipse on Monday is for the brands, and nothing else.
Have you ever heard one of those stories about a surgeon leaving a sponge or something inside a patient? What happened to a Jalopnik reader and 2006 Mitsubishi Evo MR owner is essentially the same idea: he opened up his engine, and found a forgotten socket inside.
The Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution is one of our favorite cars of all time for glorious cheap speed. You don’t need a pricey luxury sedan to go fast in a practical four-door. You need an Evo. Maybe not this 2006 Evo IX MR, though. It’s going to sell for six figures because it only has nine miles on its odometer.
Never give up on your dreams!
The Mitsubishi 3000GT VR4 Twin Turbo is absolutely a fascinating car. Rare, too! A car way ahead of its time, full of advanced electronics and four-wheel steering and two whole turbos. It’s amazing! Is such a remarkable car worth $500,000? Only if it has an original Banksy in the trunk, or you’re as deluded as this…
I’m struggling to think of a relevant metaphor for this but I can’t. There’s no parallel for someone so thoroughly, lovingly, painstakingly clean something so unseen and unappreciated as the engine bay of a 1990s Mitsubishi hatchback.
This summer, I’m going to help put the hybrid powertrain from a hybrid Mitsubishi Outlander into an ancient 1917 Mitsubishi Model A. And by “help,” I mean stand in a corner and try not to hurt myself while the craftsmen at West Coast Customs cut and weld and create, and Mitsubishi writes checks to make it all happen.
Good morning! Welcome to The Morning Shift, your roundup of the auto news you crave, all in one place every weekday morning. Here are the important stories you need to know to help soothe the night terrors that come a-knocking when the moon is full and the crickets have ceased their humming and the air is still.
I felt like I’d been mostly thinking of American cars for these Meh Car Mondays, so this time I wanted to find something not produced here in our proud meh-motorworks. And I think I found a good candidate today: a car with a good history that managed to end its career not with a bang, not with a whimper, but with the…
