IIRC it was auto only too, which may have hurt the interest.

The same that happens with the Ibiza Cupra/Ibiza FR/Fabia RS/Polo GTI.

And supposedly the Evolution is going away in 2013. So wtf is Mitsubishi even hoping to sell when that goes away?

Mitsubishi's future is probably electric.

Will Mitsubishi end up like Isuzu? Really make no cars that are that great and end up going back to the Japanese market and just sell commercial vehicles and parts? It seems likely, especially if they didn't have the Evo.

I've come to a point where I simply don't care about Mitsu anymore. Since the've discontinued the Galant at the early 00's, they have constantly lost market share. I'm not really sure if they will make the jump to an all-electric eco brand, because they simply don't have the reputation to do so (Mitsu's engines aren't really the apex of efficiency, you know). Toyota needed years to establish itself as a producer of eco-friendly cars, but their budget is much higher.
Seriously, why care about a car maker that has no intentions on improving it's lineup? From what I heard, they will probably cancel all their bigger cars and become sort of the next Daihatsu... but without quirky cars like the Copen -.-

The Galant is still around. I think. It's just a neutered FWD sedan. I'm not sure how Mitsubishi went so wrong. They had the Galant, the Eclipse, 3000 GT and the Lancer.

They've axed the Galant in Europe long ago. For the rest of the cars, it's easy to explain why Mitsu fails:

Eclipse: became heavier and less competitive with each generation. Generic shape, no awd, heavy, really bad engines... fail.

3000GT: Mitsu failed to build a sucessor for it's probably best car.

Lancer: the only decent car they build right now, but I guess it's not powerful enough for the american market (except the Evo- for some reason, many people in your countre seem to think that they absolutely need at least 180 hp...). On the european market, it doesn't reall stand a chance. Mitsu doesn't offer enough diesel engines, the Lancer Hatch came far too late and isn't good enough, and there is no wagon... which makes it technically a fail, too.

Mitsu has simply failed to invest into the right cars. The only other car maker with an equally overaged portfolio that I can think of is Saab.

I don't think they're gonna make it. I mean the car they lay all their hopes on looks like a big jelly bean...
