The introduction of television all but killed the radio star and the second wind that is the SUV craze is killing off some iconic cars that we’re really going to miss. It wasn’t that long ago that Mitsubishi decided to quit the rally business, and shortly thereafter (in the grand scheme of things,) the band put an end to the EVO program for the rally icon that is the Mitsubishi Lancer EVO. Since Mitsubishi gave up its love for Rally, we had a feeling that the base Lancer would eventually meet its demise, and boy were we right. Speaking to Autoblog, Don Swearingen – the Executive VP and COO of Mitsubishi North America – said that the Mirage G4 will continue on, but production of the Mitsubishi Lancer will officially end in August of 2017. That means that after 40+ years of production and 10 generations (according to Mitsubishi) there will be no successor and an untimely death.
