    Not sure if I believe it yet but it's better than no rumors at all.

    https://www.eightmotoring.sg/2019/07/01/mitsubishi-evo-11-is-confirmed-on-the-way/

    My worry is the price. I'd love to pick one up brand new, but 350 hp rumored and the last evo was in the 40s new. Hard to justify when Camaros, Mustangs, Challengers etc are considerably more powerful and are well refined for similar cost.

    Interesting none the less and I hope this actually comes through.

    Article is very short. I'll post the screenshot here. It does mention they believe this is part of the new alliance between Mitsubishi, Nissan, and Renault which allows platform sharing.

    If its share based then its the megane chassis from what i saw when searching. Not a bad chassis but not as good as a mitsu chassis thats for sure

    I did see that it might be based on the Megane. Being from the US, I don't know much about the Megane, but a new Mitsubishi that isn't a crossover or SUV is exciting. We will see what (if anything) they end up announcing.

    Their cup chassis are pretty well sorted but no way near rally based from start to finish so if they want a true evo and 4wd they got alot of work ahead of themselfs so make it how it should be or perhaps the new evo will be fwd LOL, just lets pray they dont have the renault engines in as they powerful but not the most reliable of engines.

    Apart from the old MK1 clio williams 2.0/1.8 16v versions (i owned the 1.8 version) the megane is the only other renault i would own but in the their race version with the cup pack. The last model was really nice, french parts are also not cheap. Maybe pray they put the VR38DETT in LOL

    I think some of those drawings are several years old.

    The mention of the possibility id a hybrid system is concerning...I like light weight vehicles. Hybrid systems add complexity, cost and weight. I don't like that.

    Indeed.

    Hopefully, they offer a couple of options without hybrid power.

    I don’t mind the chassis. If remember right the Megane rs took the fwd record from the type r. I’m more worried that they would be using the same engine. The engine is a vw ea888 engine. They are stout but the ecu are a nightmare to tune and only a few companies sell canned tunes like apr. basically an $800 can tune. I’m not a big fan of the 4motion awd either. I had a 2015 golf r for a 1 1/2 years.

    ANy thing Mitsu could possibly come out with would completely suck ass. The only way this car is some what desirable is the go back to a big port 6 bolt cast iron block and a real manual trans other wise.....boooooring.

    Aluminum block, hybrid electric cross over drives it self via google with a 29 speed automatic shifting paddles comes with a charging station at home...sounds like an EVO 11 to me.

    Agreed with previous posters. Bleh on the hybrid or french/german engines. Just build a refined, well put together, very competitive AWD sports car and it'll sell. It always does. Mitsu lost their way and it bit them in the butt so hard it ended up taking them entirely out. They need to learn from their mistakes.
