A source at Mitsubishi has informed CarAdvice of some unfortunate news. The upcoming poor mans supercar, the Mitsubishi Lancer Evo X (pictured below) may no longer be for the poor. Sources have told CarAdvice the Evo X will go on sale for around $75-80k.
The current Evo IX model (which is flying out Mitsubishi dealers) is priced at $57,000. Whilst a few in the industry expected a price hike, a $20,000 price hike caught us a little off-gaurd.
At this stage, this is merely a credible rumour. It seems that both Subaru and Mitsubishi are waiting for the other to announce pricing. Subaru recently made reference to the new STi as
It (STi) will represent outstanding value - making ultimate performance accessible to consumers for less than $100,000.
From what we can gather then, both the STi and the Evo are set for a massive price hike! While we are on the subject of rumours, the source also informed Car Advice the Evo X will arrive around November disputing previous claims made by Mitsubishi of a February launch!
