2006 Mitshubishi's Eclipse

The new eclispe will be coming out next year. Its going to be quite a powerful car and it doesnt look good for us focus owners.....performance wise that is......i dont think foci street racers out there will be doing much winning against this new eclispe...... Feel free to post your thoughts about the all new eclispe. I'm interested in what people have to say about it.

^^I heard that. (I was referring to mofocus's statement).

From the looks of it, it seems likeit's gonna be a flop just like the model out now. It's big, heavy, and still no turbo. And those massive wheel wells....for what?

Im sure it will it looks hot and unique and since the 00-04 version wasnt that much of a hit and was crap compared to the 90's model im sure eclipse fanatics cant wait till it hits the showroom. But who knows it might just as well do bad just like the 00- 04 models did.

What Ford needs is boost or some kick butt I-4 engine that pumps out at least 200 HP. That's my opinion.

^^^ My Focus puts out 30 less... is that good enough?

Don't really care for the current Eclipse... it looks too awkward.

yeah i'm not much for the current eclipse myself, they looked somewhat decent in the late 90's but just killed it with the new models. i'm not worried, knowing them they'll bomb it again just like they have recently.
