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. Please see below for a complete list of aftermarket parts and upgrades.

Our best look yet at the 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander

Sat, 08 Nov 2014 13:10:00 EST

Mitsubishi's has been busily clawing its way back from the brink of irrelevancy in the US market for several years. One of its most important models in that mission is the Outlander CUV, and as we can see from these spy photos, it's upcoming refresh is coming along nicely.
The Outlander was last redesigned for model year 2014, so it does feel a smidge early for a refresh. That said, thanks to a rather polarizing front fascia, we aren't totally surprised that Mitsu has gone to work so soon. Based on these spy shots, we wouldn't be totally surprised if the new Outlander borrowed the more attractive face of Outlander PHEV Concept-S, which was shown back in September during the Paris Motor Show.
It's impossible to tell if the rear of the car will borrow the huge, vehicle-spanning taillights of the Concept-S, but like the front end, we'd expect a fairly significant change to the back of the new Outlander. Our spies also captured a few shots of the cabin, although we don't see any dramatic differences from the current vehicle, aside from some different trim pieces.

Mitsubishi AR Concept continues a wacky, wonderful tradition [w/video]

Thu, 21 Nov 2013 15:20:00 EST

Mitsubishi enjoys a long history of thinking outside the literal box when it comes to designing minivans and people movers. Remember the Mitsubishi Van, a.k.a. Delica? How about the Chariot, better known to us as the Colt Vista? The Expo and Expo LRV, the twin models that succeeded it? These were all left-of-center takes on the MPV genre, and while they never sold in large volumes, we can't help but look back at them with a mix of bemusement and respect for their oddball character. Who knows? A production version of this AR Concept could be next.
According to Mitsubishi, "the comfort of a minivan and active personality of an SUV are merged at the highest levels" in the Concept AR. Us? We just think this mild hybrid concept looks kind of neat, even if it's just putting on off-road airs with its elevated ride hight, faux skid plates and black-lipped wheel wells.
Hardware-wise, this Active Runabout is less showcar and more 'real world,' with the front wheels drawing their power from a 134-horsepower, 1.1-liter turbocharged three-cylinder engine paired with a 10-kW electric motor used as a belt starter generator (read: mild hybrid). A continuously variable transmission handles shifting duties.

Subprime financing on the rise in new car sales, leasing too

Fri, 07 Dec 2012 08:44:00 EST

We all remember the financial crisis that began several years back. At its core was a splurge of subprime lending for housing loans. The housing bubble burst, triggering a collapse of the mortgage-backed securities market. Apparently, those types of loans still exist in the automotive industry, and the market share for these types of "nonprime, subprime, and deep subprime," loans has grown 13.6 percent compared to the third quarter a year ago.
According to an Automotive News report, high-risk lending expanded to 24.8 percent of total loans in Q3, up from 21.9 percent for this time last year. As this level increased, average credit scores of borrowers dropped to 755, down from 763 a year ago. In that time, the average financing amount increased $90 per vehicle, to $25,963.
At 818, Volvo maintains the highest per-owner credit score, while Mitsubishi has the lowest, at 694. The highest rate of borrowers was at Toyota, with 14 percent of the market, followed by Ford with 13.1 percent and Chevrolet at 11.1.
