You honestly believe a Mitsubishi would outsell a Mustang or Camaro? And you think with all that you are asking, it would only start at $55K? Hate to say it, but there is a reason why they stopped selling the 3000GT.
Aren't there enough threads dreaming about this idea already? Just do what you are saying and have one built for you and enjoy it.
I love these cars, I'm building one, I totally condone it. This is going to be another thread full of people arguing over stupid stuff that is a fantasy to begin with.

I dont get this. Not to disparage matt or ray's accomplishings, but embracing old tech innovations as opposed to the cutting edge shit of the GTR you wish the car would compete against doesnt make sense.
It all about the money. The engineers could design something badass, but the bean counters and marketing stats will back up the fact that it wouldnt sell.
Besides, mitsu's already canned their idea of performance and are moving towards shit like this
and away from evos.

It would be a bit much for someone to decide to buy a Mitsubishi performance car for 55K when no one was buying lancers the last couple years for 35-40K. It would be fun though to have all the new electronics tech, good diffs, and a fast spooling turbo in a nice car that wasnt shaped like a box. (GTR and Evo alike)
Direct injection and VCR....what a torque monster that would be.
