Witness the Mighty Mitsu, in a fresh coat of bright red over black leather interior. I mean…damn, just look at this maraschino cherry. This was one of the Breakfast Club of Japanese high performance cars that popped up in the late 1980’s and early 1990’s. Think Nissan 300ZX Twin Turbo, Toyota Supra (also a twin-turbo), Mazda RX-7 (rotary, no turbo) and the Acura Integra Type R (VTEC 8400 rpm redline), and the scrumpdeli-itious (and much more expensive) Acura NSX (naturally aspirated goodness) just name a few of the heavies.
Here again, a 1992 Mitsubishi: the three diamonds with two turbos waiting to rip into a ribbon of roaming road. And it’s not just 2 turbos. It’s a 5-speed manual transmission, 4 wheel active steering and restored suspension along with upgraded big bore lifters that should put some pep in your step. This example has only 59,000 or so miles on it, but has a veritable laundry list of upgrades, everything from new spark plugs to a new windshield, to silicone hoses and to a larger radiator. Even the emblems are new.
Really, the early 1990’s were the golden age of high performance coupes from Japan, and it wouldn’t be such a bad idea to invest in one of these gems before they’re as rare as hen’s teeth. They are already as rare as…as…as calm chihuahuas.
