Default Mitsubishi bringing back the Eclipse name

Cause fuck it. Why not

The Next Mitsubishi Eclipse May Be A Crossover Because Nothing Matters

I kind of like the teaser image tho...just dont call it Eclipse.



Quote:
Love is over. Hope is dead. Mitsubishi may revive the name of its beloved Eclipse sportscar to slap on yet another dull crossover, reports Autoblog. Nothing even matters anymore. The world is pointless. Every day is silent and grey. Come Armageddon, come.

Mitsubishi teased their new bowl of lightly warmed porridge today, which will fit somewhere between the Outlander Sport and the larger Outlander in terms of size.

Per Mitsubishi’s announcement, the new crossover features a more steeply raked rear window, a wedge-shaped beltline and a longer wheelbase that only has a short overhang in the rear. It sounds pretty inoffensive, so long as they don’t call it an Eclipse.

We’ll see if the world is truly an irredeemable place at the Geneva Motor Show, where Mitsubishi’s new crossover will be unveiled—and is hopefully called anything else. Living through the blobby, less powerful last-generation Eclipse was bad enough. Haven’t we suffered enough already?

If “Lancer” ever comes back as any feckless crossover short of the Racing Lancer Mitsubishi used to race in Dakar, you’re dead to me, Mitsubishi. Don’t even think about it.

Argh. They already killed it with when they ditched the 4G63 and changed body styles and that awful V6 platform, now this? Wow...

I want to see the finished product....the name is ridiculous but it looks like it might actually be attractive.

When your company is on the brink of complete failure its probably not a good idea to take the memory of one of the last things people liked about you and completely bastardize it

Those headlight DRL strips are getting too similar in style/shape.

I like the fact this world no longer contains creativity... Makes me feel more complacent

I'm glad to see that the designer of the Aztec rear end has now finally found a job again.

Who the hell at Mitsubishi really thought this thing would be welcomed with open arms? And seriously, your only choice is a 1.5L with 152hp?

At one point this very same company built the 3000gt, galant vr4, eclipse, and Lancer evolution(in jpn) in the same year.

Now they have 2 crossovers and the cheapest economy car you can buy.
