One can hope. I personally like the mechanical diff's and 5 speed, but more fast Mitsu's in the US can't be a bad thing :)

Don't count on it - anytime you see weight savings where they use aluminum in the upper half of the car instead of steel, it usually won't hold up to the US crash standards. Not to mention the tuning they did to get more power, which is more difficult to make it comply with emissions, and the final factor - price. That car will probably be another $10k-15k more expensive than the current Evo. Mitsu would never take that risk. It's unfortunate too, since this car would be beating up on everything on the street.

Love that color too - and the seats look great.
All they would have to do on crash standards is beef up the A-pillars like they do on convertibles and leave the top itself as aluminum. They may do that already in Japan for rigidity of the body structure....but I don't know. I would estimate at least a 20K rise in cost over the EVO we have now for the MR if it ever does come over.

Ya...actually its coming out this year...Nov/Oct 2004 as a 2005 model...so 6 months or so...I'm also waiting...I should be able to save up a good amount of extra cash in that amount of time...
I doubt that the 05's will come out 5 months after the 04's.
