Wow, and I thought the new NSX had too little in common with the old model, but this is not only playing in a different ballpark, it's not even on the same planet. Wtf Mitsubishi?

I'm confused. The article doesn't state when Mitsubishi ever called it an Eclipse?

EDIT Found this:

Quote:
"What's most odd about this car, though, is its alleged name. AutoExpress originally published a story from an early drive of this SUV's prototype, and it claimed that Mitsubishi would call its new utility vehicle the Eclipse. Yes, the same name as the sports car of yore.

The article has since been deleted, which means AutoExpress may have accidentally given away too much information. Either that, or the outlet is way off the mark. I and many other enthusiasts hope it's the latter, but both are equally likely."
Source

This is a rumor, at best. Don't take it to heart just yet. I doubt mitsu would do anything this stupid.

I really didn't think they could break my spirit as fan-boy any more then they have, but this is just too much. My wife drives an Outlander, I really don't need 2 CUV's in the stable. How can a car company have no interest in making cars when their base (and everyone on every auto site, and every journalist) is screaming for them? This new concept should be the new Endeavor, NOT the Eclipse.

I'm down for the Mitsu March!

Unhappy Eclipse SUV

If they make it into a 4b11T powered sports SUV, then I won't be as mad at them. But really, could they not have thought of another name??

Hahahaha that gave me a good laugh. Hopefully they saw it before you deleted it. If they see enough people raging before the name is released, they just might not ruin it with the Eclipse's "barely" soiled name.
