4g Eclipse GSX Concept

unfortunately mitsu is too poor and too stupid to make it a reality. gst and gsx models from 90-99 only accounted for 3% of sales.

it utilizes the 4g63 us tuners have come to love over the years for its ability to make insane amounts of power for cheap. it has the 6spd evo MR gearbox, and its awd. the concept is "tuned" by hks, meaning they stuck on some pretty powdercoated parts, added a boost controller and called it a day.

exterior wise the 4g eclipse has a much needed facelift, featuring a way better front fascia(comparable to when the 95-96 eclipses were lacking with the goofy face bumper, but 97 finally got the front end it needed to make it the sexeh version we know and love), carbon rear wing, and better wheels and tires.

interior prolly has the same **** every other evo has, momo this, recaro that.








if mitsu made them in limited numbers, like say 5000, they would sell like hotcakes. they dont need a hks t00n either, just make them the normal 276hp that the evo has, **** hks they suck anyways. then price it at 30k. id sell the stang and be first in line. i think the 4g concept is just what the doctor ordered for mitsu, and the best looking thing from them since the 97-99 eclipses.

Re: 4g Eclipse GSX Concept

psst, ford got the cougar looks from the 95 eclipses and talons.

but yeah, i didnt even notice the rocket exhaust tips. theyd be the first to go, along with the more than likely super restrictive exhaust system that stock cars always have.

Re: 4g Eclipse GSX Concept

something about the back end i don't like. its an attention getter for sure and you'd have all the asian *** in cali wanting a ride.
I don't know everytime i see it, it starts to take shape and sink in.
I'd like to see more of it in person.

Re: 4g Eclipse GSX Concept

^ I agree. That rounded *** kinda kills it for me. Otherwise, if the back wasn't like that, I think it's pretty nice. I like how much more futuristic it seems.

Re: 4g Eclipse GSX Concept

seriously guys, if it does come out, ill be signing up for one. i was at the mitsu dealership yesterday(buddy is looking at a srt4 they have there), and man the 06 eclipses look so ****ing gorgeous, that rear curve just makes it look like the curves of a great ***, especially the orange color. plus with my new job, i could afford 4 new car payments if i wanted to.
