1995-1999 Mitsubishi Eclipse GS-T

Mitsubishi Eclipse GS-T

Pros :
- Blistering performance.
- Sleek styling.

Cons :
- Tight interior.
- Noticeable turbo lag.

Whereas the first Eclipse was just an economical coupe and the latest third-generation Eclipse is a sporty touring machine, the closest this car came to being a true sports car was in its second-generation turbo form, in the years '95 to '99. This iteration remains popular with tuners, largely due to the fact that it can pull off 15-second quarter-mile times in stock form.

The front-wheel-drive Eclipse GS-T is available in coupe and Spyder convertible form. A higher-trim level version is also available, called the GSX. Both the GS-T and GSX have the same engines and look basically the same, but the heavier four-wheel-drive GSX came only in coupe form. The main engine offered was the 210 hp turbocharged in-line four, but after '96, the 210 hp motor was only offered with a 5-speed manual, while the four-speed automatics got a 205 hp turbo. Pick of the range would be a '99 GS-T coupe, which is 200 lbs lighter than a GSX and will cost you about 15 grand.

The car's reliability track record is impeccable. Just look for examples which have not been abused too much.
