all eclipse are dumb now a days.. the best eclipse was back in the 90-99 models.. what the hell a 3.8 with a front wheel drivetrain.. even dumber.. the engine is already big and heavy enough that they should have it rear wheel drive.. This car makes the mitsubishi reputation bad.

Thats because the current Eclipse was developed in North America on the FWD-only North American-developed Galant platform.
I guess its only logical for them to use the mechanicals/drivetrain from the car its based on.
The only problem here is when your donor car (American Galant) is far from being a performance car.

There are rumors that the RA Concept (see previous page for photos) might give us a hint on how the next Eclipse might look like.
If they do switch to the Lancer's platform, this will give them access to the Evo's Turbocharged inline-4 engine and AWD system.

For those looking for a sporty Mitsubishi for under $27K (USD)....
You might want to consider the AWD turbocharged Lancer Ralliart.

i'd recommend they revive the 3000GT or make a newer platform...one that doesn't suck...the 2006 model is even way better than this one

The car was great in some places but...

1) It's too damn heavy
2) despite the nice electronic gizmos, they didn't last long
3) any 3000GT that's not the twin-turbo/AWD variant (VR-4/MR) is pretty much useless


So in a way, the Eclipse is kind of a FWD 3000GT. Maybe they oughta add AWD and twin-turbos then rebadge the current Eclipse as a 3000GT VR-4...but that won't work.....

Even though the 3000GT was not exactly a perfect formula for a sports car, Mitsubishi could iron out the reliability issues for the electronic techno-gizmos and bring in a car that a person could aspire to. Personally I would make the VR-4esque model as standard and market it around the base C6 Corvette.
