I know this is an old thread, but I just ran across it. Outside: Sexy As Hell. Simply put. Not a big fan of the hood though. Interior: I like the steeringwheel, but everything else has GOT to go, seriously.

Hah. You think the doors would come stock like that? That'd be friggin' sweet.

Concept RA?

I'm probably a bit late on this, but I just saw the pics of the Eclipse Concept RA. Um, can you say WOW?!

I've Googled the crap out of it, but can't find any new info. Has anyone heard ANYTHING new on it?

Just a concept Let's hope its AWD turbo Also hope that the weight comes down, and I think I see a glass roof. No glass roof.

well since it's resurrected I might as well voice my opinion:

Styling: I'd like to see some futuristic design that is reminiscent of the 2g and 4g
body: keep it a 4 seater coupe but reduce the overall dimension to 4/5 of original 4g size
Engine: i'd love to see a gas friendly either 4cyl or 6cyl as a primary and a secondary engine either hydrogen or electric
Maybe ~200hp from the primary engine and ~150 from the secondary
Curb weight around 3000lbs not more, preferably less

Gaayyyy. :[

The butt of it is a bit weird-ish, and the interior needs a makeover, but other than that I love it. I wish they would actually come out with it, atleast in like 2011 or something... It's what they need, and what we, or I, want

What's the difference? Besides using all wheels instead of just 2.

I love the looks of the 2G and 4G but I'm just not digging the 5G, but whatever this is probably going to be my only eclipse, when it's paid off I want another car for a project and i'll keep this one in nice condition.

Mitsubishi Concept-RA concept car from the Detroit auto show

Just do a simple Google search. It's too EASY!!
It's not official that this is the new 5G. Logically we would want to conclude that it is, but we don't know for sure like when the 4G concept came out.

Moving this thread to other cars. No car talk in the Lounge/OT

They really need to get the power up or hardly anyone will even consider it. Nowadays people want looks & power, Mitsu can't forget that and focus all their attention on the appearance. I mean the 300 torque 200 hp is a good ratio, but still... It's JUST 200 hp. People read that and say screw it, for that much money I could get a 370Z with 300+ hp.

And the RA looks like the new Camaro & the Lotus Elise mated.

I'm a big DSM fan, and I say they should bring back awd turbo, and say fuck the evo. The evo had its reign, its time for the eclipse to represent again.

Damn straight. Is it really that big of a deal if they have 2 high performance cars? Uh, nooo. If people don't like the Evo, BAM, they might like the Eclipse. OH, but what if they lack on the Eclipse performance? Just lost a sale. So sad. :[

I know that's why when I went car shopping I said no to a bunch of other cars. The Eclipse had the best power for price. (Of the cars I looked at) If I had 42K to spend on a car, I would have gotten the Evo most likely, just cause of the power situation. But I didn't. Same kind of situation. Someone doesn't like the Eclipse, they might like the Evo, and reverse. And they might make a sale if they have the same (or if the Eclipse has MORE) power.

Say... 300+ hp? That would be nice... Very nice. Especially with a turbo. Oh I would so trade in. I want the "Ksss" noise every time you shift. (I know the CAI would probably void the warranty, but screw it!)

A girl can only dream.

I prefer a build myself, but having better power options would be nice. Oh and aftermarket support. Compared to the evo X, we have a shitty aftermarket. the dsm's had it all tho, and nice looks to go with it.

True, true... Maybe like start with 230hp, then have engine upgrades or something from the dealer that wont void the warranty. And you're right about having shitty aftermarket. It'd be nice to have more than is currently out there. I know there'd be a lot more done to my car if there were more options/wasn't so expensive.

I understand where you guys are coming from where you say people don't like the Evo. I like it but it wouldn't be on the top of my list. The money saved from getting another car instead of the Evo could be used for parts.

The thing with the Evo is not everyone wants a sedan. Some people want a 2 door sports car.

I know that's why when I went car shopping I said no to a bunch of other cars. The Eclipse had the best power for price. (Of the cars I looked at) If I had 42K to spend on a car, I would have gotten the Evo most likely, just cause of the power situation. But I didn't. Same kind of situation. Someone doesn't like the Eclipse, they might like the Evo, and reverse. And they might make a sale if they have the same (or if the Eclipse has MORE) power.

Say... 300+ hp? That would be nice... Very nice. Especially with a turbo. Oh I would so trade in. I want the "Ksss" noise every time you shift. (I know the CAI would probably void the warranty, but screw it!)

A girl can only dream.

The problem with that is that if people don't like the neither the eclipse nor the evo, all that money invested on those 2 cars will go down the drain rather than just having to deal with one bad investment, so the bad investment will be double.

actually 'all' the dsms did not have alot of support..
the GTO had the worst aftermarket support of all the big japanese 'super' cars..
the Supra and NSX had more support.. hell even the 300zx had more.

the 2g GSX was definatly the best bang for the buck tho. I wish i still had mine

the eclipse isn't really a sports car either.. its a sport compact, or a sport coupe... but a sports car it is not..
don't get me wrong, i love my eclipse... and I am still struggling to finish the AWD conversion.. but even then it won't be a sports car..



*disclaimer:
Sports car definition can be vague, much like the term 'rice' so take it what its worth. but a sports car is, "An automobile equipped for racing, especially an aerodynamically shaped one-passenger or two-passenger vehicle having a low center of gravity and steering and suspension designed for precise control at high speeds"

however some car buffs will refer to high performance muscle cars and other larger vehicles as sports cars. Others, however, draw a distinction between these vehicles and "true" sports cars. These individuals will claim that a car can be a "sporting car" or simply "sporty" but still fall short of being a true sports car. Thus, "regular" cars may be outfitted with a "sports package" and/or accessories to make the car sportier, but may not fit a strict definition of a sports car.
