Finally got the new EVO's at Dick Hannah Mitsubishi.
Today we took delivery of one black,1 yellow and 1 white, and are expecting 2 silver.
I got to drive the yellow one, and it's handling is impressive, could'nt really test the power too much, as they require a 500 mile break in of 5000 rpm or less, but at 100 mph it feels like you're only going 65. I love new cars!
Rumor has it that all the local Portland dealers have already pre-sold their allotment, our's are not, but they are tacking on a $9995 markup and still expect to sell all within days.
I think it's worth every penny of the MSRP, but I can't see 40K for the priviledge.
Oh yeah, they all have sunroofs and the optional carbon fiber wing.
Unfortunately I have'nt had a chance to drive a WRX so I can't compare the two.

Hopefully Mitsubishi USA hasn't shot itself in the foot by rolling out the (totally underwhelming) econo-Lancer first. That was a huge tactical mistake, in my opinion.

Oh yeah. That's smart. Sounds like the WRX all over again. Dealers add insane markup then can't sell cars.

The EVO is a great car but $40K. Come on.

I think Subaru dealers learned their lesson with the WRX and won't make the same mistake with the sti.

$40k for the watered-down 'weenie version' without the good diffs.......KEEP IT!!

Sorry to be out of the loop, but what's the weenie version vis-a-vis the cool kids version? I ran the stock viscous centre and helical front diffs and they were pretty good.

Is the only difference that the quasi-rally version comes with electronic diff in centre and smaller brakes for 15" wheels? or are there other differences?
