Murder at Mitsubishi: What Killed the Evolution?

The Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution or “Evo” for short comes from a long line of racing pedigree. It goes further back than the Evo I in 1992, all the way to 1989 with DSM and the Mitsubishi Eclipse GSX. The Eclipse in the GSX was part of a trio in Diamond-Star Motors (DSM) : The Mitsubishi Eclipse GSX, Eagle Talon TSI, and Plymouth Laser RS. These cars were the product of a joint venture with Mitsubishi and Chrysler, and were based on an all wheel drive platform.

So, what lead to the murder of the Mitsubishi Evolution?
