Get rid of the wing and I may consider going with this.

Front end looks like a rip off from the new Skyline prototype

It kind of looks like a Cylon to me, but I do dig the aggresive look.

I hear it might have been designed by legendary Cylon, Commander Vulpa.

I totally frackin dig it....and would buy one in a frackin heart beat.  Not much of a sedan fan, but in that case, I would be down.

Funny thing, Betsy mentioned to me last night on the way home from dinner....she would really like a BMW 330xi....maybe I can convince her into one of these, since they are both all wheel drive :twisted:

Yeah I seriously doubt that interior would make its way to the production model, but I don't see why the exterior would change any with the exception of the LED on the front.  *sigh*

Yeah, and I love the looks of the TL... I would have considered one if it wasn't FWD.

Hope they do as nice of a jobon the interior as they did on the exterior.  I have a hard time believing that the current interior will make it to production

this may change your mind:

The new hatchback design makes it look so much sleeker and coupe-like:


I have a thing for blacked out roofs, though this one looks like it's all glass:


For a prototype the fit and finish of the body panels are incredible.  Love the red centercaps and lug nuts:

It is all glass - look closely at that first pic!


Pretty slick.

Now, where can I get me some hot neon orange rims like that other vehicle on the truck!? :lol:

from what I've read, Mitsubishi is seriously considering offering a hatchback version of the Evo X, due to the recent popularity of hatches and "4-door coupes" and to further distance the Evo from the lesser Lancer.  The Evo X sedan will still be offered though.

I think it's a great move and I may seriously consider the Evo X hatch as my next car, if Alfa Romeo doesn't get here first (it's re-introduction has been postponed again to early 2009).

The red one is definitely a #6, but the hatch is a Sharon! ;)

that hatch looks much better than the sedan.  I don't know if I'd own one, but its a step in the right direction.

That does look good, but I don't like the rear.  I will still take the sedan.  All other angles on that are very sexy.  I'd drop it like it's hot.

I really like the looks, but it is a Mitsubishi... and they aren't known for making the best quality cars.
