    Its also 100% Speculation right now it will actually be killed off. While it would seem to go with Mitsu's recent trends, until they say its actually dead, its not. And remember, the EVO was made afer they started doing Factory Rally, which is something they are no longer doing.

    As an ex-WRX owner, all I can do is smile. :D 

    Not sure if it will kill the brand though. It all depends on what direction Mitsubishi is heading with their other cars. I mean, Toyota killed the Celica and Supra and remained fine. They just spun off sportier stuff to Scion.

    as a current wrx owner, I still was saddened by this. competition makes brands stronger, and you can't argue that the evo was a sick car.

    Definitely true. The competition between the WRX and the EVO was very healthy for both brands.

    I guess if these rumors are true then it's up to Ford, Renault, and Citro├źn to step up their game. At least on the rally front.
