Well you will need a new car if you want to beat a civic with a b18 engine swap in the 1/4 mile.

is that a joke? otherwise i am very confused.

i have seen this topic come up in many different ways many different times and i would put my money on it just being a rumor. from what i hear, mitsubishi is on the verge of bankrupsy (sp?) so there might not even be a 2007 for mitsu.

i don't want the vr4 to come back, leaving it be will make it that more rare and classic. plus they might mess up on it and just mess up the whole 3kgt thing

It's a nice thought, but not happening. This was the topic of another thread, Mitsu offered some concept cars which they offered as 'replacements for the 3000gt'. However, these cars will most likely never hit production. After some thought I'm with youngvr4 on this one...just look how Pontiac
fucked up the return of their GTO...it looks like a Grand Prix.

Well I wasn't going for the "wanna be ferrari look" so its ok. A 4door grocery getter is fine with me. :smile:

Any of you have stock time slips? I am interested in your car's 1/8 compared to its 1/4 mile times. Just Vr4s not the slow ones. It would be cool to know what it would trap in the 1/8 and how many mph are gained in the second half of the 1/4.

hey man quit it. Base and SLs are not fast ass cars but there not slow either. they can beat a lot of 4 cylinder cars and v6 so shut your mouth.

Yeah I guess you are right but I am only trying to find out the track times of the VR4s. Wouldn't you be interested in how the times break down 1/8, 1/4, 60', trap speeds?

Jeff, I'll look for my time slips if I still have any from the first time I took my vr4 to the track. I ran a few 14.1s getting used to launching it, then got it down to a 13.59 Don't remember my 60' or other stats off the top of my head, but I'll look for the slips for you.

this is what i hear and again, it might just be another roumer but...

apparently back in late 02 or so mitsu was heavily advertising the 3rd gen eclipses pretty hard and especially to the younger croud. they offered something like no payments and no interest for one full year. so a bunch of young punks got them and now they are all defaulting on their payments. so mitsu is now getting stuck with no money but a bunch of cars that are no longer new. that would be quite the blow to the balls there.

If your talking about that Toyota 5000gt that was in Automobile May 2004. That was a concept, they weren't sure if they're gonna bring it out, and IF they do, it's going to be in $150,000 range. The only reason i can think of that they'd consider bringing it out is to compete with the Ford GT. But like Everyone in the real world is saying, don't expect another supra. The only people who want to ressurect dead names are Ford and GM, which they aren't doing to well at right now.

I dont think the name supra will be on the car, but I do think a new flagship car will come out from toyota. I dont want a new supra or 3000gt. It would most likely be a fuck up on a great name.

here's a side shot of a concept i found.

Please don't take offense, it just seems like a perfect example to prove why you can't trust everything you see... Just cause it has a toyota symbol on it, or it LOOKS like the old supra does not mean it's a real concept. A lot of people are good at creating images, and editing others. A little legal bit, if you edit an original picture, it's considered freedom of speech, and you are allowed to post it without permission of the original creator, and name it whatever you wish. Unless Toyota states themselves it's coming, then it prolly isn't.
