We'll see. Looks like a lot of speculation to me.

Oh boy, the enthusiasts will really flock back for this thing... I guess maybe if their wife needs a vehicle?

Re: Mitsubishi Evo Name to Return as Hybrid Variant

Mitsubishi is dead as an enthusiasts' brand. They really have been for a few years, just grasping on to a few Evo X sales and is dies a slow painful death. Evo VIII got 3 model years, which included updates in 2005. Evo IX got 1 model year, with a special edition that replaced the 2nd model year. Evo X got 7 model years with 1 being skipped due to poor sales.

I really, really, liked my Evo X, it was a great car and a great platform. Mitsubishi put a lot of engineering R&D into this car with a completely brand new chassis, interior, and powertrain. With a few minor updates and a refresh it could have very easily morphed into an Evo XI model and I'd honestly probably own one. They let the X get too long in the tooth though and people started jumping ship.

Re: Mitsubishi Evo Name to Return as Hybrid Variant

I never really understood why they would quit making the one car anybody buys a Mitsubishi for. I know they do more than just make cars. But you think with the legacy the Evo had you would want to hold on to that. Unless maybe they just started costing to much to produce so the profits weren't there.
