Welcome to Ridiculous Rebadges, a series of articles in which I go through and examine the details and circumstances surrounding some of the more infamous and some of the more esoteric vehicular rebadges throughout automotive history.
I had no idea how badly the US got shafted on the Galant, especially the eighth generation (1996-2003). Twin-Turbo 2.5L V6 “rated” at “276 hp” / 271 lb-ft. Equipped with either a 5-speed manual or the INVECS-II self-learning 5-speed semi-automatic based on Porsche’s Tiptronic transmission.
I don’t think I have ever heard of this car before today. It is a very very good looking coupe. It was sold in the US from 1982-1988 apparently. (Global Production 1982-1990) I can find only 1 on craigslist via searchtempest.
TIL , Mitsubishi made scooters at some point in time.
Some Japanese cars are well know and coveted by many collectors and tuners, such as the Mazda RX-7, Toyota Supra and Celica, Nissan’s Skyline and Silvia, and Subaru’s WRX. But where are the other Japanese cars that seemed to have fallen through the cracks? I submit the Galant FTO for your approval.
Hi guys! Long time lurker. Need some advice, had my first auto accident last Friday. Lady t boned my evo x at a four way intersection. Idk if she thought she had the right of way or wasn’t looking but by the time I saw her it was too late. She admitted fault when the cops showed up so that’s good I guess :/. Damage…
Considering this as a new winter car. Looks surprisingly good for a 1993.
I’d say this is interesting. I forgot... jeeze I was just reading about these 3 months ago and already forgot about Mitsubishi built Jeeps... This is a 1986 Mitsubishi with a 2.7L diesel. What is a diesel Japanese Jeep worth to you? Listed at $10,900 NP or CP?…
Mitsubishi L200 pickup with the two seater cab. Don’t think I’ve ever seen one before. The L200 is a slow seller and normally has the four seat cab (as does just about every other pickup that I see).
The Lancer Evolution is no more... Long live the LanEvo! When someone gave me the opportunity to drive and review their practically showroom new Final Edition Evo X I was thrilled. I have had the pleasure to drive a couple of WRX’s, but never sampled the natural born adversary.
Remember when Mitsubishi tried to partner with Nissan to build the next Lancer and Galant on a platform shared with Nissan?
Unlike many of you fine people, I have no problem with personalized license plates. In fact, I like them as a matter of principle, and do not at all understand the irrational hatred they seem to engender. And that hatred strikes me as just that: irrational. When we buy cars, whether new or old, we choose among many…
Apparently the base 2.0L makes all its torque from 2,200 rpm all the way to redline and the gearing is dead on. Brand new 2016 models are going for under $16,000. I also really like the Outlander redesign the more I see them. Some really good values on Mitsubishis right now. And yes, I know the Outlander Sport is…
