Will the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X be the last Evo ever built? Rumors to that extent were flying fast and furious across the Internet yesterday. Mitsubishi has decided to address these claims by way of a post on its Facebook page:
Further to some comments published in the press recently, production of the current Lancer Evolution continues as planned. As for its successor, regulations and market feedback will dictate its engineering package & architecture. Stay tuned.
So relax Evo fans, this answer should make you feel... well, actually, stay worried – the above statement really doesn't answer anything about the model's future
Mitsubishi........ open ur damn eyes...... sigh!

I hardly see how a reflashed engine and borrowed suspension/brakes deserves the M badge. Actually it kinda does now, since M stands for "Marketing" instead of "Motorsport" nowadays.

I got banned of the 1 ///MARKETING teaser/striptease photo hyped up pseudo E30 M3 successor because I said something like that BTW. I agree with you. They're going to far by the teasers etc for a reflashed car just show us the darn car one shot. Also limited hard to get YET we'll fullfill the demand what's that? I'm not a hater but let's call a spade a spade.

Exactly!

I got banned as well from that board for saying it was just a rehashed 135-M sport with a few suspension bits and pieces from M3. Those guys sure are sensitive about the Segler marketing ploys. Brand loyalty at its finest.

Mitsubishi sucks for doing this. The Evo was a great car. I never drove an X but I owned a IX and it was a lot of fun.

If the Evo does survive it will be turned into a complete shitbox, just like what they did to the Eclipse.

The eclipse? The original 1G DSM cars were pretty awesome. The 2G was also cool but a little fatter. Once the non-turbo, non-DSM 3G arrived it was completely off the rails, total crap.

Good stuff. I've only seen a small handful of EVOs, especially the IXs in Toronto. So rare.

The eclipse is such a shit car. The only time it was somewhat popular and good was cuz it was in the Fast and Furious 2 movie lol

Looks like the Evo X will be keeping its value a little bit better.

Would have been pretty hard to get the EVO IX at the time. They never sold it here, and they only recently merged the US/Canada safety regulations allowing some cars to be imported.

If anything it should be a warning to BMW - don't rest on your laurels and don't pull your punches (1M).

I had an evo 8 and it was a great car for the money. The awd and a few mods the car was hard to beat. I hate to see the evo isn't going to be made anymore. I might buy an Evo X since it will remain so rare.
