At somepoint I want to Sweap a Cars engine somehow would probably be a nice project
Probably would be more efficient to buy a V8 ute and put base model panels on it.
So a Holden Sandman
FTO,GTO,Galant GTO, Mirage Cyborg (worlds smallest V6), Debonair, Lancer Celeste, Galant Lambda, Minica Skipper, Delica Star wagon, Starion, Pajero Evolution, Delica Space Gear, Galant FTO, RVR, Airtrek Turbo, Mitsubishi Libero, Eclipse and the Mitsubishi Jeep.
Most of those were off that site I linked.
As far as I can tell Mitsubishi ran out of money, presumably they didn't sell enough mainstream cars and can no longer afford to make fun niche products. Subaru exists, however they are struggling a lot in the UK market, they do have the BRZ, however they had to team up with Toyota in order to make it.
So I think the reason why they don't make those cars any more is because they made so much variety of them that they were spread to thin, meaning lots of competition in a space with few buyers. In other words they dedicated too many resources to a smaller audience. Hence they ran out of money.
Mazda however did manage to survive, by selling cheap economy/family cars that are slightly fun (apparently).
yawned to most of those
Note to self: "If I ever make a car I should make it light, hind away, and can haul at least 4 people.
Getting real tired of bitch ass police departments that order crown vics without limited slip diffs.
Well that's not something you hear everyday
Already giving up on the Yukon?
Well it's time to load your bong and watch Pokemon!
No, I'm working on rebuilding the Yukon's engine right now. I need something to drive in the meantime.
I don't understand.
The problem with making a car light is that in order to make it safe (and structurally sound) you need to use either expensive materials or allow the structure to take up more space, resulting in less cabin space. So in that regard there is a compromise to be made. Essentially you can only have two of the following three things: safe/lightweight/cheap. Of course with cleaver design you can work around these constraints to some degree, but there is only so much that can be done.
As I love to bring up every now and again, the Citroen Cactus, a car that IMO doesn't get the credit it deserves is actually rather impressive. Since it is very lightweight (around 1000kg/2200lb), resulting in good fuel economy (same fuel economy as a prius, with no batteries or electric motors), but it also achieves a 4 star Euro Ncap rating, which while not quite on par with most other modern cars is still pretty good. On top of that it is fairly practical too. However its about as fun to drive as a prius because they don't offer a sportier model. I am also still waiting for a proper 4x4 version which undoubtedly will never ever exist...
I would also love to see Citroen take this concept to a cheaper hatchback style vehicle. Where they don't need a huge engine to get a reasonably fun level of performance meaning lower insurance, fun handling and better fuel economy.
If they do make that they Better sell it in America too.
I think that the Citroen Cactus looks Really good too. Its has a very unique different styling. It suits it well imo.
But I this car still handles like crap and is uber slow.
Considering how good its fuel economy, price and 0-60 times (compared to some cheap cars) are, I am actually surprised that I don't see more of them (not sure if I have seen one before). I presume there must be something that is really offputting about it.
Either that or no one even bothers to look at what Mitsubishi sells any more.
The build quality of the mirage is absolutely terrible, think 90s Korean car terrible.
Maybe because car reviewers hate them but then a good amount of owners seem to like them (from what I have seen), I guess its like movie critics disliking a movie (Identity Thief) yet movie goers seemed to enjoy the same movie.
This might be helpful to you.
Well I guess that explains it
