I am the 2nd owner of this heavily modified 1995 3000GT VR-4. The motor has about 10k miles on it, transmission about 30k. Purchased in April 2000, I have invested over $50k in aftermarket parts and modifications into this car. It has been garaged nearly all of it's life and hasn't seen rain in about seven years. Nearly everything on the car still works except for the gas light and antenna mast which needs to be replaced. A few items have been removed, such as the active aero, front windshield wipers and reservoir, and cruise control. Other than that everything else on the car is in perfect working order, including the all-wheel steering (I recently had the RWS rack and pinion replaced), ECS shocks (recently replaced as well) and ice cold A/C etc. My plan for this car was to build a 600awhp weekend driver on 100 octane and meth injection. I got about 95% done before funds dried up with the purchase of a house. Right now the car drives beautifully and easily makes ~450awhp on 91 octane at wastegate pressure of ~10psi & has a TON of potential. With meth injection, intake pipes and tuning I'm sure it could easily hit my original target of 600awhp at 25-27PSI. The car is smogged until May 2015 and comes with a gutted catalytic converter for track days (right now it has a flow-max catalytic converter). I have put so much time and money into this car I will only let it go for $30,000 as it could easily be parted out for $20k, possibly $25k if someone was really ambitious. However, I am only willing to sell this car to someone who has the time and desire to complete it. That said, I will not entertain any offers less than $30,000. The perfect buyer for this car would be a 3000GT enthusiast who knows and can appreciate the laundry list of rare, expensive, and nearly impossible to obtain parts on this car such as the authentic PitroadM front bumper, titanium cat-back & FMIC; Kaze side view mirrors and rear bumper; ACPT one piece carbon fiber drive-shaft, quaife front LSD, OS Giken twin disc clutch, genuine MHI TD05 16G turbos, 15" StopTech brakes, and the discontinued 19" AVS Model 5 rims in limited black chrome (19x9 front, 19x10 rear) to name just a few items.

Nine Japanese suppliers have pleaded guilty in US court over charges of price fixing in the automotive parts industry, resulting in the Department of Justice doling out a total of $740 million of fines, according to a report from Bloomberg. The scandal, which has resulted in General Motors, Ford, Toyota and Chrysler spending up to $5 billion on inflated parts and driving up prices on 25 million vehicles has sent the DoJ hustling into investigations. "The conduct this investigation uncovered involved more than a dozen separate conspiracies aimed at the U.S. economy," Attorney General Eric Holder (pictured above) said during yesterday's press conference.
As the investigation stands, the DoJ has issued $1.6 billion in fines against 20 companies and 21 individual executives, with 17 of the execs headed to prison. Deputy Assistant Attorney General Scott Hammond said, "The breadth of the conspiracies brought to light today are as egregious as they are pervasive. They involve more than a dozen separate conspiracies operating independently but all sharing in common that they targeted US automotive manufacturers."
Big-name suppliers indicted in the investigation include Mitsubishi Electric, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Hitachi Automotive and Mitsuba Corporation. A list of fines and other corporations named in the investigation is available at Bloomberg.
Sometimes you need a second chance to get things right. Technologically, the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV is a pretty cool vehicle, with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder and additional electric motors providing more thrust. However, the CUV never really looked the part for all of its innovation. The Mitsubishi designers are taking another crack with the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV Concept-S at the 2014 Paris Motor Show, and the vehicle shows what a massive improvement some tweaks can make.
The most obvious of these changes is the completely different front end with a more vertical design. The headlights are reshaped with LED running lights outlining them, and the new airdam that puts a massive X right on the front grille in black and chrome with some more LEDs down below. The designers don't stop there and have a major revision to the rear with taillights running all the way across. Inside, there's black wood grain trim and leather seats.
The update takes the CUV from boring to somewhat exciting, and the even better news is that some of these updates might make it to a rumored refresh in 2016 that could even come here. Scroll down to watch Mitsubishi's teaser video for the Concept-S with more views of it and the company's full press release.
The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV is rumored to finally come to the US next fall as a 2016 model. In the meantime, the Japanese brand is showing off a concept for an Outlander plug-in at the Paris Motor Show in October with a massive improvement in styling and material quality that the automaker calls the "Sporty and Sophisticated" design theme.
With just a nip and a tuck, Mitsubishi's stylists have made the Outlander PHEV look a whole lot better. Instead of the narrow, squinting look of the current model, the concept shows a more vertical design that puts a big X right on the front end. In the center, there is an updated version of the horizontal grille leading to reshaped headlights. The big changes are found somewhat lower, with an air dam that is much better integrated thanks to black and chrome accents to draw the eye. The company claims that the rear gets similar upgrades with new lights and shining trim running across the tailgate.
The improved styling gets carried inside, as well. According to Mitsubishi, the design features black wood grain trim and silver accents throughout the cabin, and the center console is inspired by Japanese black lacquer boxes. The seats are also covered in hand-stitched leather with horizontal ribs.
