This Mitsubishi Lancer Evo XI Rendering Gives us Goose Bumps

Had Mitsubishi decided to keep the Lancer EVO going, this is what the world would have wanted


  • The final Lancer EVO X was discontinued in 2016.

  • A Lancer EVO is the ultimate performance sedan.

  • The car’s legend runs deep in WRC lore, and we miss it terribly.


Mitsubishi. This is the car company that went from satisfying eco-car lovers and diehard enthusiasts to selling SUVs. Most passionate fans of the car company felt betrayed in 2015 when Mitsubishi announced the end of the EVO X with no replacement in sight. While there were rumours that an SUV would eventually dawn the name, it’s not yet happened and that’s possibly for the best. Had the EVO XI been a thing, this is what it could have looked like.

Nay, this is what it would have to have looked like. The rendering dates back a few months but we’re feeling nostalgic and a little bummed as fall is here and winter’s right around the next bend. Speaking of bends, carving corners at high rates of speed is what the EVO X excelled at. The ultra-sophisticated S-AWC with torque vectoring, turbocharged 2.0-litre engine, and serious chassis made it a formidable track machine.

What we love about rainprisk’s design is how familiar the artist’s vision of the EVO XI is to the beloved EVO X and all the EVOs that came before it. The front fascia is impeccable with just enough current Mitsubishi design cues but with a personality all its own. The hood’s bulge and vents perfectly match the oversized flared front fenders. The character line is powerful without being overbearing and the spoiler is every bit right.

The Mitsubishi Lancer EVO: Born Into Greatness And Legend

The sport compact segment hasn’t been this hot in a long time what with a new Golf R, Type R, WRX, STI, and various N models, and potentially others to come such as the GR Corolla (maybe?). This club is missing a Lancer EVO. And no, there’s no need for another Focus RS.
