14 Cars Axed in 2012

10. Mitsubishi Eclipse

The Mitsubishi Eclipse sports car had a fantastic run, but its 22-year production ended at the end of 2011, marking 2012 the first year that a new Eclipse didn’t roll off the assembly line. It was the best-selling Japanese sports car in the last 20 years with over 980,000 units sold. Priced under $20,000, the Eclipse was an affordable sports car for automotive enthusiasts, though its last-generation model could be debated if it was really a sports car at all.

    Gallant or Mitsubishi Lancer Ralliart?

  • The picture is a Lancer, not a Galant

    Test drove a ZDX once. It really was an abysmally bad car, though very surrounding and comfortable inside. You felt like you were in a high-tech spaceship… however… with the view that one would expect from inside a proper spaceship – nothing. Tiny, tiny windows, huge blindspots. I’d classify the car as downright dangerous, until self-driving cars with collision sensors all around them become the norm 😉
