    Diamond Star Motors (DSM) was a joint effort between Mitsubishi and Chrysler's Eagle and Plymouth divisions. This partnership is responsible for producing the Eclipse, Talon and Laser which we refer to on this site as DSM cars.

    We've put together a simple guide pointing out the significant mechanical and cosmetic changes of both the first generation (referred to as 1G DSMs, 90-94) and second generation (referred to as 2G DSMs, 95-99) DSM cars. Scroll through or select a link below to get more information on that particular year and make.

    1G
    1990-1991
    1992-1994

    2G -- Note: This covers only USDM models
    1995-1996
    1997-1999

    For a bit more in depth look at the differences between years, see these articles:
    Change Between Model Years
    Differences Between the 1G and 2G Turbo DSMs
    Differences Between 5-Speed and Automatic DSMs
