Well this makes us feel a bit like the boy who cried wolf. Earlier this year we brought you news that the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X was dead . It seems that is not entirely correct. A new report form Autoguide has quotes form Amanda Savercool at Mitsubishi’s U.S. arm has flat out denied that 2014 is the last year of the Evo X.
Now there are some caveats here. First off, she can only speak for the U.S. model, and she is only stating that there will be a 2015 Evo. Nothing more, nothing less.
We still expect the Evo to bow out of the world stage sooner, rather than later, and this may just be a last hurrah to allow Mitsubishi to get rid of parts. Either way, if you have $35,000 or so and you want a Japanese rally n monster that doesn’t wear a Subaru badge, Mitsubishi still has your back.
According to the report, the 2015 car will begin production in a month or so. We have no information on any potential changes to the car, but smart money says it is exactly the same as the 2014 model.
