Great GT car; fast & fun

by 20+ yr VR4 Guy from Northern Calif. | March 27, 2013

I've owned my '92 VR4 for over 20 yrs. Only 49k miles. Factory original in all respects. This is a super reliable car when left unmodified. Bullet-proof engine and drive train. These are MUCH faster than the Base and SL models. The exterior styling still is eye catching even though some may feel it's over detailed. The active-aero system is actually very functional at over 100 mph. It adds a lot of downforce. The 4WS was ahead of its time. It's driving habits are very predictable - no sudden surprises on unfamiliar roads. I've heard from many owners who have 200k plus miles on their 3000GTs that are still running strong.

It makes heads turn.

by Gear Head from Edwardsville, Il | January 30, 2012

I've had a base model for over a year now and it is amazing. The power is acceptable but can be so much more if you want to go for that. The engine sounds aggressive when it revs up good. there are parts on the market for the sohc base models that are extremely cheap and give huge gains in performance. The style inside and out is incredible. the interior makes me think im driving a supercar. The beauty is, these are rare cars, unlike a mustang or what not. Everyone looks when i roll down the road. These are so amazing i even persuaded one of my friends to get one. The most beautiful thing is that its not a ricer! I recommend this gorgeous machine to any guy or girl looking for a sports car. You can't go wrong with these.

solid and missed!

by spin 30 from Illinois | October 9, 2011

I just lost mine in a garage fire. I loved the look, curves, and super-fin. 1997 Diamond White 117,000 miles and running strong. Beyond me why Mitsu won't produce a limited #. One would be in my garage, no questions asked.

Fine, Quick, a car before it's time!

by J. Kehoe from | July 17, 2010

First of this particular 3KGT is not the SL it is the base, if it were the SL it would come with the DOHC. As you can see in the pictures it is the SOHC engine. I have a manual SOHC 97 base and love it, tourqie, great styling and people often mistake it for its VR-4 counterpart. This is a great car at a great price.

fast reliable rare VR-4

by 97 VR-4 Owner from | January 25, 2009

I have owned this car for over four years now. The car is at 200k miles and is still very fast. Mine does 1/4 miles in the mid 13 sec range on no rebuild and original turbos. The car has been very reliable. No major issues just do your 60k tuneup and your good to go.
