im so dissapointed with mitsubishi...

the new EVO IX... (japan, not out yet, dont think anyways...) they just keep on making it worse, and worse, and worse... it started from evo 7 and continued down hill (IMHO)

It reminds me of some sort of rodent. I think it looks like it was squished on the front and back ends to make it fit in some uber-compact european parking spot. Not pleased.

Whast wrong with it? Thats only a concept drawing, I doubt the real car will have that much resemblance to your picture you posted. Even if it does, I think thats a great new design for the Evo. Personally the pointy bird beak nose on the Evo VIII looks funny and a flat front bumper and grill, like that on the STi, would give the car a better look.

I like the wider front end. Makes it not as much as a rice-boy look now as it does 'Im going to eat you'. Anyways, I wonder what they're going to change on the EVO IX over the VIII. I'm hoping a new LARGER turbo

well rumour mill is saying that the new evo wont be a lancer! I forget the name of the model it will be, but not the lancer at any rate!

btw, just had a call from a customer of an evo3, who told me he got the throttle stuck and wiped out the front end gonna have a hard job finding an evo3 front kitt these days to replace it!

I total argree with you, i to like the older evo's (evo III, IV, V) more than the newer ones. As for the evo IX, looks like crap, it better not look like that when it's made.

The Evo V probably has the best look of all the Evo's, PROVIDED that that bug eyed front bumper goes.

Here is what, the Evo 9 will look similar to.

Pic 1
Pic 2
Pic 3

For those of you who cant tell, the car pictured above is just an 04 ES with an Evo8 conversion kit. Although the Evo 9 will have more distinct side body lines, this is ONLY a general idea.
