Just Got Mitsubishi Owners Survey

Anyone else get this? Asked my impression of the company, what cars I own presently, how likely I am to buy Mitsubishi again and then impressions of models they produce or have produced. Found it interesting the Eclipse came up a number of times... even took the screenshot below.

Lets hope a 5G is at least being tossed around. I think it's time...

Yep, I got this too. Seems like they're testing the waters a bit, which gave me the impression a new Eclipse might be under consideration.

Yeah I got this too. Hoping they do something to bring back some kinda sports car. A rwd eclipse to fight the 370's and Genesis coupe would be nice! Or an evo like car. Either one would be great!

If a Gen5 were made I would lose my mind... but I can't see them bringing back the Eclipse without bringing back the Evo first.

It would probably be called a 3000GT.

brendonalgeier has a spectacular aura about
I feel like they'd drop a new Eclipse before another Evo. There's still new Evo's sitting on lots (as I have been speaking with Tom about... lol). They'll let it die down a little bit, and then reintroduce a new model after people are itching for a new one. Right now, people are happy. The Final Edition is a great car, not to mention the MR's and GSR's that are still circulating around- they'll keep people happy for a few years to come. I'd love to see a MIVEC Turbo Eclipse. It blows my mind that they did away with the turbo 4's after the 2g. An AWD, turbo sports coupe would be hot right now. Cause look at the BRZ/FR-S/GT-86... everyone likes the way it looks and drives, but everyone wants a damn turbo. Hyundai abandoned their turbo 4 Genesis Coupe (and the whole genesis platform until 2020 for that matter), not that it was particularly fast though. A new Eclipse could completely revitalize the market. The annoying thing is that Mitsubishi has the technology and the resources, what with their recent "acquisition" by Nissan, yet they still taunt us... with the 78 HP Mirage...

AND: Toyota is supposedly launching their new "Supra" in 2018. I'd like to see Mitsu go at em with a turbo 4, and N/A V6, and a V6TT.

Citation needed, but the buyout isnt 100% done just yet, they still have to go over it with the share holders. I'm not so sure they'd let the eclipse fester. After the 2G, sales just kind of tanked, its not a profitable car, and even if they make an AWD turbo for 45k+, our current market wants to buy mustangs and cameros. I just don't see it as a profitable move on their part. Thats not to say I'm not hopeful, but as they say, hope is the first step on the road to disappointment.

It's not even necessarily a buyout... But at the same time it is. They'll have controlling interest. And the reason people buy Mustangs and Camaros is because Japanese sports coupes have sucked for 15 years, and Ford and Chevy just keep going. And there is the Challenger RT and Hellcat that have also grown more popular. It's a fact- Japanese sports coupes have been out of the performance market since the 90's. All there is are the 3 & 4Gs, the GT86 platform, Z, and GenCoupe. GTR is the only car that can hang (and by hang, I mean shit on) with american performance cars, but thats $110,000- a completely different market. And it's a stretch to really refer to any of the others as performance cars like Mustangs, Corvettes, and Camaros. Sales tanked on the 3g eclipse because A) it looked like a Chrysler Sebring, just uglier, and B) they abandoned the turbo, which really saddened all the tuners. It wouldn't be hard for any of these companies to come out with a new car (or revitalize an old platform) that could compete with the domestic sports coupes. But like I said. Mitsubishi now specializes in mass producing grocery-getters, and soccer team transports.

EDIT: FFS, Cadillac even has TWO performance coupes. ATS-V Coupe, 464 HP, and the retired XLR-V with 443 HP. If Cadillac can do it, so can the Japanese companies, if they tried. Instead of making nice LOOKING cars, with 0-60 times listed as "eventually," they should give people what they want... the good old 90's rice burners

Weird to think that, at one point in time, Asian cars could out surpass american. I'm fairly new to the car scene, and its always seemed that while I prefer Asian cars, the american cars will always be faster, at least stock vs stock. I'd love to see nissan churn out a 700hp sports coupe to compete with the hellcat.
