Jalopnik recently had an interview with Mitsubishi Motors North America’s executive vice president, Don Swearingen, to learn that Mitsubishi is tryingly doubly hard to stretch the life out of the current Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution.
We already know the Lancer Evolution is going to be discontinued for good, making many wonder what’s going to be left in Mitsubishi’s lineup to keep it interesting from an enthusiast perspective. But to make sure we’ll never forget it, word surfaced that Mitsu will be serving up a final edition in June of next year called the 5MT GSR.
In addition to confirming the Evo X was going to be the last of them all for now, the last version will be offered with a five-speed, “more horsepower, some suspension tuning, and some bits” that are being finalized, according to Swearingen.
Only 2,000 will be made, so if you’re a die-hard Evo fan, you better scoop up yours quick.
