Fast Facts:
  • The 3000GT was designed from the get-go to be a 4WD twin turbo sports car. A base model was never intended – however, Mitsubishi had a partnership with Chrysler on this car, and Chysler required a “base trim” model that sold for under $17k. This base model became known as the SL
  • Chrysler re-badged the 3000GT as the “Stealth”, and it would feature the same engine/drivetrain options as the U.S market 3000GT
  • Since the platform had to accommodate a cheap base model, the RWD platform used on the Starion (Mitsubishi’s previous performance car) was ditched in favor of the cheaper FWD platform from the Eclipse. This kept costs down for Chrysler, who was already using the Eclipse platform in the Eagle Talon and Plymouth Laser
  • The VR4, with its 4WD system, twin turbos, and twin intercoolers, weighs 606lbs more than the base 3000GT and 452lbs more than the automatic trans SL. While the Active aero and electronic exhaust/suspension were high tech, period road tests claimed these “gadgets” were mostly ineffective and added weight to an already heavy car
  • Mitsubishi took notice, and with rising prices, began dropping all of the high tech features one by one. First the adjustable exhaust after ’94, then the ECS suspension after ’95, and then the active aerodynamics after ’96 to make way for a taller, more effective wing design
  • The 3000GT’s AWD grip allows it to launch faster than cars like the MKIV Supra Turbo, beating the Supra to 60 MPH in a Motor Trend road test. However, the AWD advantage quickly dissipates, and the 3000GT takes 1.2 seconds longer than the Supra to reach 100 mph
  • In 1994, the VR-4 received a 6spd Getrag manual transmission. The 6spd featured revised gear ratios, as the ratios in the previous 5spd meant 3rd gear could hit 120 MPH. In the new 6spd, 3rd gear tops out at a much more reasonable 107 MPH
  • The new 6spd also featured an exceptionally tall overdrive ratio of 0.59:1 in 6th gear to improve highway fuel economy. Top speed cannot be achieved in this gear
Key Model Year Changes:
  • First year of the 3000GT
  • The following year (1992) saw no changes except for new paint colors
  • 1993 models received leather seating as standard
  • Significant changes didn’t occur until 1994 facelift: first year of the 6spd, no more hidden headlights, dual airbags, final year of adjustable exhaust, and more
  • 1995 was the final year of the electronically controlled suspension (ECS)
  • 1996 was the final year of active aero to make way for a taller, more effective rear wing on ’97+ models
  • 1997 saw a more aggressive front bumper, updated projector beam headlights/turn signals, and more
  • The following year (1998) receives no changes, and 1999 models end production with a massive rear wing
